Hey folks. It's been a minute since I blogged, and life has certainly gotten in the way of everything crafty for me these days. What can I say? C'est la vie!
Anyway, I have a new pattern that I wanted to share with anyone who is interested. Having designed, created, and published over 130 pieces, I had yet to design a "crochet" hat or beanie until now. A friend of mine had been asking me for about a year to make him a kufi. In fact he wanted "5" of them!! So, I finally came up with a simple pattern that I wanted to share for free. Without further ado, I give you the Atwater Kufi Hat.
