Purple Divine Hat

26 Aug

My sister bought me some cascade yarn part of my graduation present. It’s been sitting around for a few months but I finally found a pattern I wanted to try. That’s the divine hat. Turned out quite nice I think.

The pattern is by rheatheylia and can be found here.

Divine Hat

Items Needed:
Less than 3oz. of WW yarn
K hook for body
I hook for ribbing

Gauge:3 dc with K hook = 1″ Height isn’t important because you can just add on rounds

To join each round: join with slip stitch around the first front post double crochet of previous round (or beginning ch 2 of the first round), ch 2, then fpdc down into the same front post double crochet you just did the slip stitch to (again, this will be a ch 2 for the beginning round). This pushes the ch 2 behind the fpdc you just made (ignore the ch 2, it doesn’t exist). This isn’t necessary, but it looks better than a standard ch2 and makes the join less obvious.

1. 15 dc in ring
2. Fpdc in every dc (15)
3. Fpdc in every fpdc, dc in the space between fpdcs (15 fpdc, 15 dc)
4. Fpdc in every fpdc, dc in the first space between fpdc and dc (15 fpdc, 15 dc)
5. Fpdc in every fpdc, 2 dc in the first space between fpdc and dc (15 fpdc, 15 2dc)
6. Fpdc in every fpdc, 2 dc in the first space between fpdc and dc (15 fpdc, 15 2dc)
7. Fpdc in every fpdc, 3 dc in the first space between fpdc and dc (15 fpdc, 15 3dc)
8. Fpdc in every fpdc, 3 dc in the first space between fpdc and dc (15 fpdc, 15 3dc)
9. Fpdc in every fpdc, 3 dc in the first space between fpdc and dc (15 fpdc, 15 3dc)
10. Fpdc in every fpdc, 4 dc in the first space between fpdc and dc (15 fpdc, 15 4dc)
11. Fpdc in every fpdc, 4 dc in the first space between fpdc and dc (15 fpdc, 15 4dc)
12. Fpdc in every fpdc, 4 dc in the first space between fpdc and dc (15 fpdc, 15 4dc)
13. Fpdc in every fpdc, 4 dc in the first space between fpdc and dc (15 fpdc, 15 4dc)
14. Fpdc in every fpdc, 4 dc in the first space between fpdc and dc (15 fpdc, 15 4dc)
15. Fpdc in every fpdc, 4 dc in the first space between fpdc and dc (15 fpdc, 15 4dc)
16. Fpdc in every fpdc, 4 dc in the first space between fpdc and dc (15 fpdc, 15 4dc)

Switch to I hook

17. Sc around (75)
18. Fpdc in one st, bpdc in the next, around (75 sts)
19. Fpdc in one st, bpdc in the next, around (75 sts)
20. Fpdc in one st, bpdc in the next, around (75 sts)
21. Fpdc in one st, bpdc in the next, around (75 sts)

I stopped at row 19 and added a row of single crochet because it was long enough for my head. Yarn was Cascade 220 The Heathers in purple (3.5 g – 220 yds) and I use almost the whole hank. Made with size J hook instead of K because I don’t own a K.

I think this one is quite beautiful too.

Black kitty

16 Sep

Is it too early for Halloween? Never! The stores seem to agree with me since there is already halloween stuff being sold everywhere. This super cool black cat was not created for halloween however, it was crocheted for a lucky swappee on craftster. Won’t mention who yet since I’m in several swaps at the moment (probably too many).

I need to ask everyone’s opinion though. Does it need arms and legs? How can I make the body more interesting? since it’s just plain old boring black right now. Kitty was created with 100% acrylic yarn using my own pattern. I may eventually post the pattern up but it definitly needs some tweaking. Somehow it also looks like a rabbit instead of a cat..
