Erica asked me to crochet her a red hat just like the hat I crocheted for her (I think) last year. I used Vanna's Choice in 'scarlet'. I photographed the hat on Missy because I haven't given it to Erica yet - maybe I can get a better picture on her.
The pattern is posted here: http://hooksandyarns.blogspot.com/2009/12/ericas-hat.html
I've finished the 10 granny squares I am swapping with my blogging friends. Hopefully I'll be able to get them in the mail within the next few days. p.s. Madeleine and Grace Ann - can you email me with your mailing address please? My email is firstname.lastname@example.org
I've also gone back to working on my 'round in circles' blanket. I've been missing it. Everything else will be on hold for a little while. :)
To Susanne -
~~The ch 2's do not count as a st.~~
Rnd 1: Ch 3, 12 dc in 3rd ch from hook. Join with a sl st to 1st dc. (12 dc)
Rnd 2: Ch 2, 2 dc in each dc around. Join as before. (24 dc)
Rnd 3: Ch 2, 2 dc in 1st dc, dc in next dc. *2 dc in next dc, dc in next dc. Repeat from * around. Join as before. End off.
For the joining border, I use the flat braid method. The link to that is on the right sidebar.
The circles are connected by 4 loops on each side.
