Sara's Hat - 005

Craft Magazine has just published my latest pattern, Sara’s Hat, on their blog. It’s a perfect fall hat–a soft beanie worked in squishy wool (Blue Sky Alpacas Worsted Hand-Dyes). Back loop single crochet is finished with Crab Stitch (reverse single crochet) for a nice, braided edge.

I crocheted this hat for my sister-in-law Sara, and when I gave it to her, I subjected her to a photo shoot, thinking I would certainly want to publish the pattern eventually. (Yay for forethought!) I was excited when Craft approached me about creating a crochet colorwork pattern for them since I already had this nearly ready to go.

With the move, and graduate school, I haven’t been doing tons of knitting and crochet lately, but I’m finishing up one hat design right now and starting another. Sense a theme? I’m determined, as I’ve had to fit my yarn “collection” into our new house, to knit up the slew of unfinished projects I discovered in unpacking. We’ll see how long that determination lasts.

    The Island pub, perhaps? It’s just down the street from my house. A very good restaurant with great pizzas and salads. We’re getting to know Douglas, and enjoying the liveliness of Juneau’s art and culture scene. Do you live in Alaska?

    JUST GOT YOUR NEW POST ABOUT NOT GETTING MUCH DONE WITH GRAD SCHOOL. I finished a whirl wind grad program in 1 1/2 years and was struggling with being unable to read chick lit and crochet. BUT there is light at the end of the tunnel and when you are done, the new found time is awesome. So hang in there.    Sullivanstasher
