Simply Crochet: Diamonds and Lace Hat

Edit: A winner has been chosen and the giveaway has now closed! Congratulations Lisa in Boca Raton, you have won this e-book. Please look for an email from me for more info.

Welcome back to the Simply Crochet Countdown, where we’re counting down the days to the book’s official launch date. If you can’t wait, you can also buy it now as an E-book. Today I wanted to tell you a little bit more about my Diamonds and Lace Hat, another one skein project in the book. In case you missed my Twist Cowl/Wrap, read more about it here.

Diamond Lace Hat

For this hat, I knew I wanted to use one skein of a fine weight yarn (I actually pitched it in lace weight) and use both cables and lace to create something interesting to stitch and wear. Post stitches and eyelets make up an all-over diamond pattern that’s worked in the round, and the part I love best is how they converge at the crown of the cap.

Diamond Lace Hat

This hat is worked from the bottom up and takes less than 200 yards of sock yarn (or, one sock’s worth). I really love the yarn, Spud and Chloe Fine. It’s a sturdy, tightly twisted yarn that shows off the textured cables without sacrificing softness.

Here’s a side view on my sister Mary, just to give you another angle. Lucky for you, this pattern–and all patterns in the book–includes a stitch diagram to walk you through the setup rows and overall diamond pattern.

And, lucky for you if you’ve read this far, Interweave has generously donated one Simply Crochet E-book for a  randomly selected Lindamade reader. Answer the question below by midnight on Saturday, Dec 10th and I’ll update this post with the winner on Sunday. Come back Monday for yet another fun book review!

Do you have a special ball of yarn in your stash that you’re saving for the perfect project? Tell me about it. If you don’t, just tell me about one of your favorite yarns.

    My friend spins beautiful yarns and gave me several skeins for my birthday! It sure what I will make yet!

    I have a laceweight by Sky Loom Weavers in shades of green. It was a huge skein for a great price at my first Kid n Ewe, this year. It was also my first non-chain/big box store, non-clearance, "fancy" yarn purchase. I went into the vendors booth and as soon as I saw it, I wanted it. I picked it up and carried it around the booth, petting it, for about 10 minutes, then put it back because I was on such a tight budget. At the end of the day, I still hadn't had anything really grab me like that yarn, so I went back to see if it was still there, and it was! Yay. So, I bought it, and even the vendor remembered seeing me carry the skein around and insisted that it wasn't just calling to me, it was screaming for me. :)

    I have a very similar skein in pink! :) I was joking that it was about the size of a newborn baby and perfect for cuddling. Still haven't done anything with it either!

    I bought some alpaca wool when I was living in Bolivia. Because I can't supplement it, I've been holding on to it until I find the best project for it. Will I ever feel like a project is perfect for that? Love the Diamonds and Lace hat, especially the top. The symmetry is beautiful. Thanks for the offer of the book!

    Ok, honestly hat's don't really excite me. I mean, they're everywhere. But when I saw this Diamonds and Lace, I really was speechless. It's fantastic! Love it. Very nice. This is definitely one to be be proud to crochet for loved ones.

    Regarding special yarn...I don't have anything special just yet. I bought a stash from a garage sale and was surprised by some of it! A few brightly colored balls I thought were a bit too bright ended up being really nice to crochet with. And the color...well, it's perfect for holiday projects!
