I had a dream, a dream about crochet and in the middle of the night, I woke up and drew the shape from the dream. The very next morning I sat down and crocheted the shape. I didn't know what to do with this shape and for six (6) years, this shape has been patiently waiting to share its beauty with the world.

Resurrecting Old Crochet Hats

In the mid-1980's I remember my Polish mother-in-law, Henryka, showing me how to crochet in a spiral and how to add contrast surface-crochet. [Originally the surface-crochet was made using a slip stitch, however, over the years I have changed that to (slip stitch, ch1) instead, which I think is way better].

How to Crochet a Simple Beanie

Simply Perfect Beanie

In 2001 I designed this simple beanie for my grown-up children, who were in their 20's at the time, and living in the sub-tropics of Australia, where it doesn't really get very cold in winter, but when the wet weather and strong winds blow, in those cool morning and evening temperatures you definitely need to keep your head and ears warm. That is how this simple beanie crocheted totally in one stitch was born.
