More Pretty Hats

image

Taking a little break from commission work to catch up on some gifts. This pattern is so quick and easy. Originally published in Craftseller I hope to put it up for sale later this week. The navy version is a slight variation which you’ve seen before. This one is a bit bigger to fit a toddler. Hopefully I’ll be back soon with a few new published patterns, meantime it’s back to work on a new commission (you’ll either love or hate it …think tea at the Ritz…).

Come & Crochet a Beanie

I have just finalised the details of a special crochet workshop on 23rd November. Thimbletown, based at Blakemere Craft Centre in Cheshire are now stocking MyBoshi yarns and patterns and this is your chance to come along and crochet a beanie for yourself or for a gift. MyBoshi Beanies have designs suit all ages and fashion styles and are great fun. The yarn is a blend of wool and acrylic, a practical choice for outdoors. If you have teenage snowboarders in the family, I think this would be the perfect gift. I can even imagine my Mother in Law pulling on one of these to walk the fells.

Boshi is apparently Japanese for hat – and the two German ski instructors who came up with the concept are clearly on to something. MyBoshi yarns come in a fabulous range of colours and there are patterns to suit all skill levels. In fact, even if you’ve never picked up a crochet hook before you’re welcome to come along and try making one.

For all course details and to book, you can contact Pauline at Thimbletown on 01606 883232. This is a full day course, you can either bring your own lunch or buy something delicicious from one of the cafes on site. Thimbletown also stocks a great range of yarns (including Rowan, Debbie Bliss, Louisia Hardng and Bergere de France). I’m really looking forward to this special day on my workshop calendar and hope to see some of you there!
