Happy Christmas to you. I hope that you have a wonderful day and Santa brings you presents that you love. I am one of the lucky ones who doesn't have to cook on Christmas Day. I get invited to my brother and sister in law's house and spend the day with them and my two nieces and partners.
These crochet hats were my last added on presents. I had wool left over from my niece's aran jacket so decided to crochet hats for her and her husband to be. The first pattern is a free one and can be found by clicking on my blog title. I have made a few of these hats and they are so easy to make but look effective with the spiral pattern. The bottom pattern is my adaptation of the Driftwood cap from the Fall Interweave crochet 08. The pattern in the magazine calls for it go round in a spiral effect but as I like my rounds to match up I joined it at the end of every round. It has left a bit of a slight ladder effect but I preferred that to the lob sided spiral in the magazine. Again it is a very easy pattern to make as it is all fdc (front round the post trebles if you are in the UK or front round the post double crochet if you prefer the US terms)
I will be taking my knitting with me to my brother's as I have still to make the legwarmers wanted for New Years Eve.
Happy Christmas and thanks for reading my blog this year.
