Since we don’t yet have a chair which knits a hat as you rock, we have to get our needles out and knit or crochet our owns hats . We actually like making hats because they are short term quick reward projects. . They are fun but they are also a good way to practice technique, gauge and patterns. Making hats can built up your yarn skills and confidence and be a way to stash bust as well. Marina crocheted two hats last week. The top hat is made with her own spun wool plied with commercial wool and the crochet hat sits really nicely on your head. The lilac hat is made from commercial wool. Marina wanted to learn that crochet stitch and so she made the hat. That too is a hat which sits nicely on your head and with the little decoration it’s a bit dressier than a beanie. Hats keep your head warm in winter but they are also a nice fashion accessory. Ravelry has an easy sideways crocheted hat. We prefer to turn the brim up.
