One for all you crochet ladies..

Ok so I know lots of you don't knit so couldn't take part in The Big Knit but I know loads of you crochet. Last night I sat down & worked out how to crochet the hat but still keeping the size & shape. I then set about writing out the pattern, sorry the lighting is poor, this was taken very early this morning when it was still dark!

However I was checking out the hat of the week this morning when I found this crochet pattern (on the bottom row in the middle)....... gggrrrr I spend a long time writing it up last night!

So now all you crochet ladies can get involved too...... just think of the old folks shivering this winter......

Feeling guilty yet??? lol!!!
Even if you only manage 1 or 2 they all help. I wanted to make about 100 but at this rate I'll be happy with 50. I spotted a group on Flickr that have made over 1,000!!!

Best head off to work ....... 11 hour shift today ....yippee!!!


  1. Hi Joe,

    I really wish I could help, but in between learning to drive, studying for the degree, and trying to make stuff for this christmas market I've agreed to do I don't know whether I'm coming or going at the moment!

    I hope you get to your magic number :-)

    Have a good day!

  2. Hi Joe,
    I'm sure I can make a few for you - presuming I can follow the pattern of course!

  3. I've had a look at the pattern, other than hating working into slip rings to start, yes I can do some!

  9. still haven't managed to learn to crochet (unfortunately) but looking forward to doing what I can on Tuesday. x

  10. Hi Joe
    I'll try my hardest to make one, I can't promise I'll succeed.
    I've started my blog again if you'd like to pop over and say hi.
    Take care

  11. Hi Joe,
    Am sat here making hats. Instructions say to make to the desired length, can you tell me what that is as I'm going round and round and not yet sure when to stop!
