Saturday Ramblings

Hope you are all having a good saturday morning so far!

Do you ever have one of those days where nothing wants to go your way and everything irritates you? I am sure you have. Well yesterday I had one of those days. I was ready to crawl back into bed and start the day over or sleep until the next day. But we all know, that is never quite possible and so we truck on and forward and try to make the best of it.

In the evening I decided I needed some quiet and ME time. First I took a hot bath, which was followed by a good cup of Hot Chocolate. At that time I decided I needed to just sit and crochet and it needed to be something that didn't take a lot of thought or counting. I figured the best thing to make was a quick hat in a simple pattern. One can never have enough hats at this time of the year and since I always seem to give away the ones I have already made, I wanted one to keep my own little ears warm. So here it is, yippie, all finished. Made my evening. It's also in my favorite color, which is red. You all want to see it? Well ok than, here it comes......

Forgive the light in my house, it is just never the best.


Well? What do you all think? Did it come out alright? Nothing fancy, as I said, but it will do the job.

Would you all like the pattern for this simple hat? Yes you said. Ok than, here it is:

Yarn: 1 Skein TLC Baby Amore or another yarn you like
Color: Red (shown)
Hook: H (5 mm)
Stitch markers
Tapestry needle
Pattern: (Cap is made in a spiral)
Ch 3, join with sl st to form a ring. Mark the beginning of each round.
Rnd 1: Work 12 dc into ring (12 dc), chain 3 (they will count as one and first stitch on each round)
Rnd 2: *2 dc into next st. Repeat from * around (24 dc)
Rnd 3: *dc into next dc, 2 dc into next dc. Repeat from * around (36 dc)
Rnd 4: *dc into next 2dc, 2 dc into next dc. Repeat from * around (48 dc)
Rnd 5: *dc into next 3dc, 2dc into next dc, Repeat from * around (60 dc)
Continue adding rounds until the diameter of your circle is 5” to 5 ¼” for an average women’s
head and 5 ½” to 6” for a larger head. 

Rnd 6: Continue working dc in each dc until desired length is achieved (Approximately 7 to 7.5
Last Round – Half Double Crochet (HDC)
At end of last round sl (slip stitch) in next 2 dc. Fasten off and weave ends in with tapestry
needle or if you like a border, which I did, than chain 3, skip 3 stitches, sl, st, continue till end of round

next round: single crochet, 3 dc and one more single crochet in each loop. Continue till end of round.
than fasten off and weave in ends.

Any questions, let me know.

Ok, now off to get the day going. Hoping the rain will stay away. Make your day wonderful as well and we will see each other soon again.
