change of pace
I've found that crocheting helps with my migraines or at least numbs me enough to feel a little better while I am crocheting. I'm working on baby hats for my local hospital. I've probably made 1,000 hats in my lifetime and it is nice to have a simple pattern that doesn't require any thought. I found this new one and it is very simple.
The first 4 rounds you double crochet, starting with 12 and going to 24, 36 and then 48. If you know how to crochet, you know how to get there. Once you have the base rounds done, just do a simple shell stitch around and around. Single crochet, skip a stitch, three double crochets and on the next row alternate.
My local hospital asked for baby hats for the cold months so these will get some good use soon. Today was in the low 80's. Sorry for all of you in the middle of a storm, but that is why we pay so much more to live in California!
