I was weary of all the snow Philadelphia endured. We had 70 inches to shovel! It got me thinking about tropical paradises. I had a ball of Aunt Lydia's Double thread in the color Mexicana. The colorful strands inspired me to me to make a kerchief or headscarf, a shopping bag that folds up into a travel pillow and a bookmark. You get 3 projects from one ball of yarn! Hope you like it. The best part? It's a free pattern! You could use 2 strands of #10 thread, instead)
I love all the hats I've been seeing on the board, so I thought I'd jump in with a hat I designed. It uses 2 types of yarn held together, a Homespun (fuzzy bulky weight) and a worsted weight, The hook I used is BIG, so it goes super fast! It's only 13 rounds, but you could flair the brim out a bit more by adding an extra round with more increases. That's the beauty of crochet, you can do what you want!
