Update: 09/08/2013. The beanie and headband patterns are now available. Click here for more details.
I’ve loved making my Southern line of hats and just couldn’t see myself “putting” the creativity away because summer is practically over and everyone is now ready for fall. Anyone can see from perusing through the pages of Facebook and blogs that people are gearing up for the colder months and excitement is in the air. Well, so am I but…..my summer hats, I love making them.
So, what is a crocheter to do when the climate and custom orders begin to change? I do what we, (crocheters) do best and become creative. I’ll satisfy my inner need to make my beautiful sun hats while meeting the current seasonal demands. How?
My next release will have several multiple patterns to choose from and I’ve listed them below:
- The classic ELK Studio style summer hat along with a short brim version. I’ve had a few people ask me if I designed hats without requiring the use of millinery wire. I listened and it’s included with this pattern. (The flower in the short brim picture is not part of the pattern but is a modified version of Teresa Richardson’s pattern. Here is a link I provided in an earlier post.
- A winter version to include small, medium and large instructions.
- A headband version with an added bonus. Everyone has loved the Hounds Tooth hat, scarf and tote, so I’ve included a free Hounds Tooth headband pattern!
- A scarf and boot cuff pattern.
So many great accessories to add to your bucket list! There is enough there to keep you busy for at least 2 days right? I know how fast some of you crochet…….
Are you ready to see some of the accessories? The boot cuffs and scarf are still a work in progress but here is everything else!
The first pattern released from this series will be the Winter Version style and should be ready within the next few days!
I hope you will enjoy this pattern as the testers have done a great job to help me make this hat series fabulous!
I haven’t name this hat yet and decided that it will not join the “Southern” series, so if you have a great name in mind, let me know. I’d love to hear your suggestions! Be sure and stay tuned to the blog or ELK Studio’s Facebook page for updated information about the new pattern.
Have a great day and be blessed!
