A couple of the many projects I have going on are stocking caps . I have a knitted hat and a crocheted hat with similar styles. The pattern for the knitted hat is off a I Love This Yarn label. The crocheted hat is version of the knitted hat, using alternate front and back dc.
Here is a finished crocheted hat I did. I did this from the bottom up using a dc foundation row.
The one I am working on, I am doing top down, as I am not a fan of the dc foundation row.
