This is what I've been up to this week. a lot of times a pattern will come through my email. Sometimes I print it.. sometimes I don't. Depending on how complicated or time consuming a pattern it is. When I saw this one, it seemed like a very easy pattern and not much time to make it. I was correct. The name of the pattern is Kids Earflap Hat. Copyright 2009 Tiffany Roan. There is a pic of it and it looked like a really warm hat. It calls for one skein of chunky or 2 strands of ww yarn.
The blue hat on the left was made with Deborah Norville collection. Serenity chunky weight in Seven Seas. This yarn is so incredibly soft. I just love working with it. I used a J hook.
The hat in the middle was made with Sensations Rainbow Classic Pattern in Taupe Rnbw Classic Pattern. I used a with a J hook. This is also a very soft yarn. Even though it is ww yarn, I only used 1 strand to make the hat. Only because the yarn itself is fuzzy and warm. I didn't think it needed 2 strands.
The hat on the right was made with Sensations Rainbow Classic Pattern in Purple 2 Rnbw Classic Pattern. I used a J hook.
Thank you JOANNS for the coupons. I had one 50% off and one 40% off. It's nice to find yarn on sale but, JOANNS insists on sending me coupons every couple of weeks so what am I to do? lol If there is yarn such as Sensations @ $7.99 a skein and not on sale, the coupons are very nice. I can get a few hats or so out of one skein which is nice.
I will be making more before sending them off to Sandy for The Bridge Project.
I hope you have had a good week and have an even better weekend.
Until next time...
