From picking up a hook and making a hat that fits any head, to writing a hat pattern in multiple sizes, How to Design a Crochet a Hat: Any Stitch. Any Yarn. Any Size is filled to the brim with advice and techniques to get hat making right…the first time.

Based on my popular tutorials, this interactive Workbook demystifies hat design so crocheters can make the kind of headwear they want to wear and give.

The Workbook outlines 2 basic methods:

Crochet and Go: Pick a yarn and a hook and just start crocheting to make a hat that fits the first time, using the simple geometry of a circle and some basic measurements.

Swatch and Grade: Used for more complicated stitch patterns or making hats in multiple sizes. This method is complete with a downloadable spreadsheet to grade patterns correctly.

How to Deaign a Crochet Hat is fullly interactive, allowing you to use it like a workbook as you design a hat and it is full of tips for hat making: size charts, stitch patterns, diagrams, techniques and inspiration to allow anyone to create beautiful hats.

In addition, the Workbook walks you through the basic instructions to make the Beary Cute Hat or a pretty shell and cable beanie.

The workbook will get you on your way to designing your own hats, either as a beginner or get you on the first steps to designing as a pro.

While we were at Wonderwool, Joanne and I spent a large part of our time drooling over the Triskelion Yarn stall.  The sumptuous colours and elegant bases just begged to be touched and admired and ultimately taken home.  To justify the purchases, we decided that we would each release a design in the yarn. Originally we had planned to keep it a secret from each other, but that lasted all of about 10 minutes.

From the moment I picked up the bold gold and dark teal of the Branwen line, I knew I wanted something bold and stripey.  Originally, I had planned that the lace stripes would be the only pop of colours in the shawl, but as I absentmindedly crocheted at some school event, I accidentally added in a few of the alternating stripes in the ribbing section and decided it was meant to be.
