Knitting, Crocheting and comments about life

Huntington Basic Cable Crochet Hat

With all this talk of crochet this week on my blog, I figured I would share one of my favorite patterns in my Etsy and Craftsy shop that has actually just been revised and resized to incorporate a larger range of sizes. This hat is a great introduction to cabling in the crochet world. It uses a basic front post double crochet (fpdc) for a dramatic effect.

So what yarn would I use… There are many options for this hat and it iactually a great stashbuster if you have a skein or two left of yarn after making a larger project. It uses worsted weight yarn (CYCA 4) some suggestions are:

Kraemer- Perfection

Debbie Bliss- Cashmerino (distributed by KFI)

Green Mountain Spinnery’s- Mountain Mohair

Berrocco’s Vintage and Pure Merino

Brown Sheep’s- Worsted weight

Would love to see your finished projects and hear your comments!
