“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 in Debbie Stoller, the yarn guru’s, book The Happy Hooker. Doncha’ just love that title? Hee hee 😉 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.
