Completed Mock Crochet Hat.

Well, here it is; the completed mock crochet hat. I'm pleased with the way it turned out for my first try, and hope to make more in many different colors. I just love this stitch. I used the green loom and started with the tail end cast on, knitting a couple of rows of K1, P1 for the ribbed brim. Somehow it didn't turn out quite right. I stitched the mock crochet for around 6 inches, and then did 5 rows of the 1 over 1 stockinette stitch. Directions for the mock crochet stitch can be found here.

HINT: Don't do what I did trying to end the last three stitches after every round. I literally stayed up all night until 5:00 a.m. trying to figure out why I was getting large holes down one of the rows.

"But you are a shield around me, O LORD; you bestow glory on me and lift up my head. To the LORD I cry aloud, and he answers me from his holy hill." Psalm 3:3,4

Alright Linda I want onboard!

I have no idea how to do this so tell me what to buy ; ) I told Lenny you need to start a knitting fellowship group. We can all sit and talk about the Lord and knit at the same time!

Hi Jami!
I think I'd like to do this. We could get our Knifty Knitters and loom through the Psalms together. You can get the set at Wal-Mart. It comes with four looms in a carrying bag. They also have the Knifty Knitter Instruction booklet II for a $1.00. There is a #1 booklet, but I found that at a Super Wal-Mart.

Hey Linda,
I have a new post, but I don't think it's popping up on my main page, but it is definately under archives. Let me know if it showed up on my main page for you. I just love this browser, it is so much better. Thank you again for helping me with it.

Hi Linda!

Glad that your blog is back up again. I'm in blog-world now as well... "Pomegranates in Bloom"! it's fun visiting with friends from all over, although I'm spending more time than I should!

Bailey is behaving quite nicely now. No more growling or barking, although he has his odd little moments!

Take care for now :o)
