The unique stitch of this cowl allows for creative color combinations! It creates a thicker cowl that can easily cover you face against the elements, but is still soft and flexible to bunch up around your neck.

Button Ruffled Hat with Flower

20150126_204850

This ruffled hat will not only keep you warm but it is stylish as well. The ruffle adds a small brim to the hat and the ridges give it some texture. It reminds me of a hat from the 20s so Downton Abbey fans will love this! The button ruffled flower is a great applique for this hat too!

You Say Both Loops, I Said Front Loops

I had a moment this weekend. A moment of sheer panic. A moment of utter doubt. A moment when I realized that the standard way to crochet is through the entire stitch (both loops) and I usually only crocheted in the front loops.

HAD I BEEN CROCHETING WRONG THIS ENTIRE TIME!? The short answer? Nope, calm down momma.

Now I will explain:

THE STANDARD CROCHET

The standard way to crochet is through the entire stitch or both loops. The final product will be uniform throughout. The right side and wrong side will look very similar.

Here are 4 rows of a standard single crochet:

Standard single crochet.

FRONT-LOOP CROCHET

Crocheting in only the front loops (the loop closest towards you) will give you less dense product. Your rows will be more pronounced and give you a very evident right and wrong side when crocheting in rounds and a lined look when turning your work.

Here are 4 rows of a front-loop single crochet (arrows indicate the lines created):

Front-loop single crochet.

BACK-LOOP CROCHET

Crocheting through the back loops with create a chunky ribbed product.

Here are four rows of a back-loop single crochet (arrows indicate the ridge/rib created):

Back-loop single crochet.

Here are all three together:

Single crochet three different ways.

Again, they are all the same stitch (single crochet), but because each is done in a different loop you get a different look.

My Hook: Unless specifically stated in the pattern, YOU can choose which loop you would like to crochet in. Each will give you a different look, feel and texture to your final product. As I post my completed projects I will indicate which crochet loop I used so you can start to see the difference.
