This Thick Warm Crocheted Winter Hat lives up to it’s title. With front post stitches for insulation, my brother loves how fast this hat warms his head.
I crocheted the Boy Beanie v2.0 for him, also using Red Heart Super Saver in paddy green, but it turned out too tight. I was thinking of trying out the Husband Hat for him, but he requested a Cable Hat, like my gray one.
I really enjoy the Cable Hat pattern, but after making that hat several times over to get the right size, I had no desire to make another for a while. The Thick Warm Crocheted Winter Hat pattern seemed like a good compromise.
This hat is my first with a brim and it looks very bulky in the picture. When worn on an actual head instead of a yarn ball, the brim stretches out a bit more.
In other news, I’m working on a new set of photos for the Through Any Window Baby Blanket tutorial. Three rows were out of pattern order, so I’m re-photographing them. The actual directions are correct, but just remember the color order is jumbled. Also, I’m planning a new tutorial for a neat little crochet technique I came across on YouTube.

I though I’d kick off the New Year with my very first blog slide-show. Click on the picture mosaic above to see a neat little slide-show of the crochet squares I made. There’s even a music number that goes along with the slide-show if you click the volume button on the left corner.
I’m a little tongue-tied today and can’t seen to get the details of these crochet squares written right. I’m just going to leave well enough alone and save it for another day.
If you have still have some blog time to kill I would suggest going to Crafty Christina’s to check out her new free St Maurus Headwarmer crochet pattern featuring the Jacob’s ladder stitch. This is on my ’08 crochet queue and looks like a serious must for stylish winter crochet wear.
Oh, and speaking of free crochet patterns, today I noticed that The Daily Crocheter has featured my Through Any Window Baby Blanket as their free pattern of the day. You can see the link listed through the 14th of January on their free pattern of the day archive.
Here’s to future free crochet patterns everywhere in 2008!
