A change of pace – crocheting

Here’s an idea for your hats … a band around the edge. Go to Ravelry for the pattern (http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/banded-toque-with-shell-edge)

Yes, the Knitwit can crochet! Actually, I have many more years of crochet experience than knitting although I much prefer knitting. I wanted a change so I decided to do some stashbusting and make a few hats for charity. The result? A new hat pattern published on Ravelry.com this morning called “Banded toque with shell edge“.

The hat uses a specialty yarn from Jo-Ann’s called Wave. I’ve had it in my stash for a few years because I hadn’t figured out how to use until I realized I could embellish a plain hat with it! Crocheting with it required me to slow down and make sure I pulled each of my loops through the stitches so I wasn’t crocheting too tightly. I suppose the other option would have been for me to increase my hook size for the decorative band.

What kind of colors can you make in…
