My name is CheVon Bell and I absolutely LOVE to crochet! I crochet amigurumi (which is a fancy way of saying crocheted stuffed animal), sweaters, hats, and anything else that comes to mind. I've done sewing, I've tried knitting; but for me, crochet is the way to go!
I began with knitting when I was pregnant with child number two, but found I didn't have the patience for it. Then I turned to crochet and never turned back. Now, three years later, I am working trucking right along. ^_^
Also, and by no means secondary to crochet, I have 3 lovey daughters--3, 5 and 9 years old--and a wonderfully supportive husband. ^_^
I have found my greatest love in the world of crochet: HATS! They are quick and easy to work up, and the possibilities are nearly endless when it comes to designing them.
After stumbling upon a pattern for a Slouchy Beanie (also know as Kingston caps, berets, tams, beanies), I wanted to try it, but put my own spin on it. I am new to the world of crochet design, but I am loving every minute of it! I wanted the pattern to be a little playful, but still have versatility (after all, I did design it for a baby ^_^), so I figured the front post double crochet would work well in the middle of the hat. I'm not the best when it comes to appropriately finishing off a look, but with only a little trial and error, I made the brim of the hat work with the reverse single crochet.
I hope you like it!
