I’ve never really considered myself a crafty person, but I do love to knit and crochet. As I grow in my love of fiber work and my desire to live sustainably, I find myself doing more and more crafts, such as this New Moon Hat I made last month:
This turned out well and since I have quite a few crafty projects lined up for the coming months, I thought I would share them with you. You have to promise me something, though: don’t think I am showing your projects beyond your skill level. I’m not being humble when I say I’m not crafty. If you can knit or crochet, you can do the projects I am showing. You just need the right tools!
I made this hat using a free pattern from Lion Brand Yarn. I used the Amazing yarn in Wildflowers that the pattern recommends with size 9 double pointed needles. It took less than a skein of yarn to make.
What I love about patterns like this is that they look amazing, but are incredibly simple. To produce the hat you see above, all I needed to do was alternate knitting and purling every few rows and use a self-striping yarn. It only took me about a week!
As beautiful as this hat is, it is definitely a fashion hat, not a functional hat. Unfortunately I can’t pull off fashion hats. However, I am the leader of a knitting and crocheting club at my school, so I sold it at one of our sales. It was gone within half an hour of being displayed! The woman who bought it was so sweet and the proceeds go to charity, so I was happy to have found this hat a home so soon.
