Swirls Cap

I don't know if I like this hat on me yet. It's cute and it feels good when it's on, so I'll give it a test drive I guess.
Swirls CapThe pattern is the Swirls Cap, which is available on Ravelry. It's a well-written pattern and only took me a day to finish crocheting it, plus one overnight to let it dry after blocking. You probably wouldn't have to block the hat if you used a different yarn, but I used Moda Dea Silk 'n Wool Blend and it definitely needed to be blocked. The Moda Dea also grew a little during blocking even though I tried to keep the original size. It obviously still fits, but if I were to make something else with this yarn, I'd keep that in mind. It's a nice yarn...it's soft and the color is pretty.

Hope you all had a great weekend!!

Fabulous hat! Sure wish I could knit--maybe in a few years I'll have the time and patience!

Hi Arizona (the person, not the place), I like the hat! Thanks for visiting my blog - its just an eclectic mix of the ramblings that jump around in my head. Kids, sewing, reading, and life in general. I don't do any knitting or crocheting, but I do appreciate the arts. Someday I want to learn, but for now I'm trying to accomplish more sewing and quilting. I am also trying to learn how to use my serger. I'll come back and sift through your posts soon! :)
