Willow Hat

Well, my resolution to blog more often didn't last long! I have had a very busy few months, leaving little time for posting, which I will post about shortly. For now, I wanted to let you know of my latest pattern, a crocheted hat published in Issue 47 of Inside Crochet magazine. The Willow beanie is proving quite popular and I have already seen a lot of different versions, including this fab rainbow version by Ali Campbell, crochet teacher extraordinaire, over at Get Hooked on Crochet.

The hat is a great introduction to raised treble stitches (called front/back post double crochet in US terminology) to create a ribbed effect brim, and is really very simple. Unfortunately today was the last day issue 47 was available from all good bookstores, but you can buy a digital copy, and it is packed with fabulous projects. I love Rohn Strong's gorgeous cabled cover project, Rosalind, while Joanne Scrace's Walk in the Woods cardigan is just such a fabulous everyday cardi, I have to get round to hooking it. My littlun has a penchant for Lynne Rowe's Celeste blanket (she loved playing with the sample), and I must admit, I love a pompom. And there's loads more!

The pretty pictures are again by the wonderful Britt Spring.
