Spiral Brim Hat

This is a knitted hat with a spiral brim. I got the pattern here:
I had a little problem with it. I cast on 80 stitches like the pattern says for the adult size. For the brim to make the spiral the pattern has to move over one stitch on each round. If you cast on 80 it will move over 2 stitches. You have to cast on a multiple of 6 plus or minus 1. So I did 79 stitches and it worked fine. If you want the spirals to go the other direction cast on 77 stitches. The only other problem I had is that 6 inches from the beginning to start decreasing is too short for an adult hat. I had to go 8 inches from the beginning before I started before I started to decrease. I used Red Heart Soft and size 8 needles.

Crochet Hooks

These are my crochet hooks. I have seven G hooks, and four H hooks. I steel hooks I have 4 size 10, and 4 size 5. As you can see I have all the rest of the sizes too. The really big ones and the tunisian hooks won't fit in this case.

2 knitted scarves

These 2 scarves are knitted lengthwise. I used worsted weight yarn, probably Impeccable, Red Heart soft, or Vanna's Choice. I don't remember which. I donated them to the WWII museum.


This is a knitted scarf made with 5 different yarns. They are black, white, and red. They are different textures, which results in a very interesting and soft scarf.

This is my newest scarf. The pattern is called the Saroyan. It was designed by Liz Abinante. I got the pattern from Ravelry. I used 2 skeins of Lion Brand Wool Ease. The color is called Autumn. It is difficult to see in the picture but one edge is straight and the other edge has a leaf pattern. It is narrow in each end and goes straight in the middle.
