A Hat and A Yarn...

Yesterday I started a new project - a hat for my daughter. I often check Ravelry  for new crochet patterns - or just to look at what everyone is sharing. {You should sign up if you haven't already, it's free and a wonderful place for crochet or knitting patterns.}

I found several patterns for slouchy hats and really had a hard time choosing. I did find this pattern a few months ago and love the way it looks. The only problem is the band is knitted and my knitting skill level is basic beginner at best. Well, I figured I would start it and either figure out a way to finish it with crochet or beg someone to help me with the knitting part. lol Maybe my friend Penny...

Here is what I have so far...






The yarn I am using is Red Heart Soft in Grape. I found it at Joann's last weekend. I also bought a skein of Seafoam which is much bluer than it looks in my pictures. They are so soft and have a little bit of a sheen to them. I am really enjoying working with them. You should try them for you next project...
