My name is Anastacia, and I am the scrap yarn/one skein queen. I buy my yarn mainly at yard sales/thrift stores, so I got used to making do with what I could find. So most of my patterns are designed to use up the odd skeins or leftovers in your life, and are geared towards beginner crocheters or those who just want a fast, easy, but still pretty item.
I'm a 30 something adult living in MA. Iâ€™m married, have a wonderful cat named Wedgie, & I work full time. I also teach knitting & crocheting at my local Michael's & squeeze in designing as many hours as I can a week.
I do love to hear from everyone, but please remember that I am busy, just like you, & will reply as soon as I can.
All of my patterns use USA terms & abbreviations.
I try to layout my patterns as simply as possible to save money for people printing at home. My patterns are as short as possible, usually with only one photo on the first page, which you can easily skip printing to save ink.
This is a top down, crocheted hat, worked in rounds, joining with a slip stitch after each round is complete. Pattern is written for two sizes, 19.5" around & 21" around. It is designed to be very slouchy, & any worsted weight or bulky yarn will work well for this pattern.
This design matches my "Tumbling Diamonds Shawl" pattern, also available for sale.
The version in the first two photos was stitched using Lion Brand Tweed Stripes & the orange version was stitched using Jo-Ann Sensations Caribbean yarn, a worsted weight yarn.
Two sizes are included: Size small (fits preteens - teens, 19.5" (49.5 cm) around), size large (fits most ladies, 21" (53.3 cm) around)
