I was introduced to crochet (and yarn) as a child from my aunt and knitting as an adult from a fellow homeschooler. My mom has always sewn. And I have always loved Arts & Crafts, as do my children :).
I have teamed up with my partner in all things yarny to create a website: StitchGeek.com
I designed this Friendship hat for a Design Challenge in a group on Facebook. The theme for the design was friendship. For myself I wanted to show the friendship found since I became a knitter and over the internet. I wanted it to show the friendship brought about by people from all walks of life coming together despite differences and distances, so I chose to have each person be a different color. You could easily do this pattern in two colors, or any amount of colors you would like.
I designed this hat using worsted weight, mostly Red Heart, yarn since that is what I had in my stash. Yardage will vary based on how many colors you choose to use. I would like to remake it using a smaller yarn, will update the pattern with notes when I do. If any of you test it and change the specs let me know and I will add them in to help others who are interested in making a Friendship Hat. :)
Thanks to my friend Ellen of Knitti Politi for testing the hat.
:) Happy knitting!
