Mom has been experimenting with her crocheted hats. The hats are mostly what we call a sock hat but she is also trying out making what the kids call a “rasta” hat or a beret. And a few of them she has crocheted side flaps on. This is a work in progress, of course, and she likes to experiment. We get a few of the patterns from websites and one of those you might look through is the All Crafts Net. They have hundreds of patterns for crocheting and knitting projects and not just hats. Making a crocheted hat can be fun and is a fairly fast project for you to do. Once you get the basics down experimenting is encouraged with colors, types of stitches and adding crocheted roses or even pins to make your hats unique.
Mom is also making crocheted bags. She is using her own pattern that she makes up as she goes along. Once she has settled on one kind or another we will post that one for you. In the mean time you might want to try the Crochet Central website. They also offer free crochet patterns for you to try. Below we have posted the pictures of some of the hats and purses that are being offered on our website: http://jolenesbooksandmore.com
