hats and squares and scarves

Busy fingers and busy hooks. This week I made a few hats. I know these two look the same but they are not. One is a dark blue and the other is purple. :-) I have a small head as does my sweet model here. I think they would easily fit children or a small woman's head.

I also made a smaller variegated green hat.
I think that one would fit a younger child.

Besides the hats, I've been making squares. I started out envisioning 12" but after 9 rounds I couldn't envision it anymore and decided that was a great size! I have 3 finished and another begun. I also have a second partial skein in the same color to work more up. It's funny how as time goes I get impatient and want to be done with it even though I love this pattern, one of my favorites.

I am also still working on the pattern for the shop. I have completed a sample scarf using one of the edgings. The pattern will have many options and additional information. I always try to include as much as I can in a pattern that someone is kind enough to purchase.

I think that is all that's been completed this week. I've emptied out a bin to put my finished projects in until they're sent out. That will save me multiple trips to the post office.

Happy crocheting!


  1. I especially love the variegated green crochet hat!

  2. You've been busy girl. Many thanks for your visit and sweet comments, appreciate the comfort.

  3. I adore the scarf, but your work is always a pleasure to look at. The multicolored scarf is also a delight.

  4. That variegated hat is great---you can never tell how a variegated yarn will work up, and I really like the way that one looks! Nice blocks of colour.

  5. Thanks for all the nice comments. That variegated is one of my favorites, too. Kathleen, you are right, you never know about variegated yarns! It's almost a surprise when they come out right. LOL
