“It’s a stretchy, close-fitting, and comfortable hat in a style that’s popular as casual street wear and with outdoor sports enthusiasts, boarders, skaters, and bikers…one size fit’s just about everyone.” ~Laura Killoran

I’ve been crocheting like mad and my current passion is hats! I adore a pattern I found inΒ  Debbie Stoller, the yarn guru’s, book The Happy Hooker. Doncha’ just love that title? Hee hee πŸ˜‰ Her books are my yarn bibles.

She features many different yarn artists in her books, and the beanie hat pattern I’m smitten with is by Laura Killoran of Croshay Design. LOVE this pattern! If you want to make this hat you can get the pattern HERE.

Laura changes the colors for the single crochet stripes. I didn’t do that for the two I’ve made so far, but I think switching between double and single crochet adds beautiful texture to this hat, even if you keep crocheting in the same color.

Gracie is modeling the beanie hat that was crocheted in Red Heart’s Coffee Fleck.

Have fun!

    I love beanies! Of course, it’s no magic hat… but what is? πŸ˜‰ These are awesome. Maybe someday I’ll be able to make my own.

    Thanks Kimber! We really like her, she’s a keeper πŸ™‚

    Maybe I’ll make you a hat and send that with the painting that is still sitting here. OR maybe we should just get together πŸ˜‰

    Are there any crafts you like this time of year?

    xo,

    We really do need to get together!! I would be so thankful and priviledged to receive anything you’ve made, you’re very sweet to offer! I wish I crafted more, since I love it so much, but the last few years have had me so preoocupied with everything and everyone else that I barely get to the things I really want to do. I generally make my own christmas cards and gift tags, I use to cross stitch & do bead work, but gave it up because of my arthritis.

    I’m actually planning to make a magnetic thankful board out of an old metal tv tray I picked up at the thrift store – all ideas from your blog my dear!! I’ll be sure to post it when I finish it (next week hopefully).

    Much love,

    Definitely, after the holidays!! My favorite color is green, but would love a hat in red if you choose to bless me with one of your creations!
