Yesterday I found a pattern on Ravelry that I liked. When I visited the blog that it was posted on I liked it even more and the Author was so entertaining that I ended up reading everyone of his posts.
If you are a crocheter you know how hard it is to find or come up with a Crocheted item for a man that has some kinds of texture. Usually they end up looking girly. So normally when I create something for a man I knit it (which takes me much longer than just crocheting it)
So after I was done reading all of Tim’s blogs. I went to my stash found some yarn and hook and OMG! I was unable to put the project down after I started… Which btw was late… At about 11:30ish I caught myself asleep well I made a few more stitches and whaddayaknow I was asleep again! Well after waking up several times I decided I had to put it down for the night. This morning I finished it all of my kids loved and above are the photos.
I did change a few things but that was because I was working with what I had (pattern calls for Chunky yarn I used WW) and my dislike for SC’s. As you can see everyone LOVES this hat and the way that it is designed it has lots of stretch to it for big heads like mine and will grip small heads like my 3 year old daughter!
Now on to the designer. His name Tim and his Blog is Man-Made…LOVE his sense of humor! And what I love more is he is a Man that Crochets. He even helps his Wife with projects! (what I wouldn’t give for my Husband to join me one day) Tim grew up around crocheters and knitters and clearly has and appreciation for the Art. He has only been actively crocheting for a few months and is already designing so can you imagine him in a few years! I see a book in the making! Well if you would like to try this pattern out Click here Deep Woods Explorer Cap He also has matching Fingerless Gloves and HERE is his Ravelry project page so you can Hook it tonight!
