Hats Off

I finished my third Spiral Hat this weekend.
I’m really enjoying this pattern (even if I do say so myself).

I found yarn in my stash that fit Thing #2’s color request of purple and black, and began hat #4. What are the odds that, I, of all people would have purple/black yarn in my stash.
Michelle found a picture of a hat she liked and that led to a new design, aptly named “Michelle’s Hat”. It’a a combination of crocheted squares and a knit crown.

She will get the dubious honor of testing knit/crocheting the hat.

I had this random thought that I would knit/crochet all my pattern samples in purple, like a trademark. Upon reflection though, I decided that might get obnoxious to people who aren’t fond of purple and deter them from my patterns. It’s a fun idea though.
