Matching Sets To Aid Ohio's Homeless are Donated

3 crocheted hats and scarvesThank you Sherry K from Ohio for this fabulous donation of 3 matching scarves and hats. I've specifically laid out the hats differently to show you the versatility in this style hat. The black hat lower right is fully open....it might look long to you; but for larger heads this is nice and if someone wants to really pull it down there's enough to do so.

Notice the blue variegated one is the same style/patterned hat but the brim is rolled 1 time. The brim helps the hat fit a slightly smaller head while at the same time provides double thickness over the ears.

Look top left and you'll see the pink hat which opened is longer then the black hat and can be rolled twice for a nice thick wide brim. Again the thicker brim over ears can be additionally warmth, and if the hat is slightly too large rolling the brim the brim can help to make it fit.

Sherry I'd love to add this pattern to our pattern area here on the blog, if you're able to share with us.

  1. Ribbed hats are Sooooo versatile and can fit a wide variety of head sizes - definitely the way to go.

  2. Sherry, come post and tell us what pattern you used please. Awesome hats

  3. I have been sick, again this week so this is the first time I have been on here. I know this pattern from memory but I will have to search to find the pattern. I believe it is under a Youtube channel for Bethintx1. I will check it out and get back to you soon.

  4. I did find the pattern, it is definitely in Youtube. When you search you should list is as "Crochet Ribbed Hat, Part 1. Even though the pattern is very simple there are several parts to the pattern. If you would prefer I can right the pattern out in an email to you as long as its understood that it does come from Bethintx1. She does not have a written pattern. Send me an email if you'd like for me to do this at Sherry.keever@yahoo.com.

  5. Sorry you've been ill Sherry, hope you're feeling better soon. Just back in town, will try to find the pattern on u-tube in the next couple of days. If I don't have luck will sing out again. Thanks

Where are You and Your Yarn From?

I'm trying to identify where everyone is from, partially for fun. Take a look at the map. Also, believe it will aid me in cases where we have several people with the same name. Please look at the lists of bloggers and non bloggers and see if I have the state you hail from. If not, please leave a comment and let me know.

Additionally, we've had help from Scotland, England, Germany Puerto Rico, Canada, and France! They don't appear on the map, but their help is still greatly appreciated.

Where The People Who Donate Come From, is your state represented?
