My hubby left for the weekend on a trip up to the Smoky Mountains with a good friend of his. I’m thinking it’s about the guy bonding or something like that but honestly, it’s freezing cold up there and a LONG drive from our house so I’m okay with it 😉 From the pics he’s shared it looks like a lot of amazing trails and gorgeous sites to see.
Autumn mountain gorgeousness coming at you!
Wish you were here!!
While he’s out enjoying his time and getting back to nature, I’ve been keeping busy with our kids and of course, my yarn! Winter always has me on the hunt for new and interesting hat patterns for my family and last night I found one I couldn’t say no to over in Ravelry.
The stitch definition is glorious. It’s something I could look at and never get tired of. And not only does the stitch look good, when you run your fingers over it, the fabric reminds me of an old knobby and gnarled tree.
It’s also UNISEX–which in my house is always a good thing. People are always grabbing hats to stick on their noggin and it’s always comical to see who gets stuck with what hat.
The pattern, published by The Laughing Willow in 2010, is called the Deeply Textured Hat. She hasn’t blogged in a year *sadness* but the stuff she has up is all amazing! I highly recommend browsing her blog collection and pinning your favorites.
This hat works up quickly and can be altered to fit any size just by switching up your crochet hook or yarn (one of my favorite sizing tricks to do.)
As far as hats go, I love this one. I’m a huge fan of textured crochet and this one has that and more. I can see lots more Deeply Textured Hats on my hook in the near future!
If you’ve made one and want to share, head on over to my facebook page to drop a pic! I’d love to see your work!
