Knot a Hat Thinking Cap

You can find the pattern of my Thinking Cap in the 2014 issue of Crochet Accessories. I submitted photos of the red and white Knot a Hat (below) to Interweave. They sent me Pavlova and Kiwi colored Kenzie yarn to tapestry crochet the hat for them, then tweaked the name of the project.

Proposed Knot a Hat

This playful hat was inspired by the blue baby beanie (below) that Maarit Aalto gave me in 2005 at the Crochet Days Conference in Finland. Instead of starting at the top, crocheting begins at the rim. The rounds spiral around towards the top, so the tail can be as long or short as you wish!

This year’s edition of the magazine is full of other fun projects, too, so I hope you’ll take a look and give this knotty project a try!

    Hello,
    I have a large favor to ask? I sell antique purses, textiles and embroideries, mainly English and European as I am based in England. I have three antique 1820-40 period miniature coin purses that I believed were netted, knitted and crochet but in the course of research I have stumbled upon your lovely website and now wonder if they could be antique tapestry crochet examples. I wonder if you could spare a moment to take a look, I would very much value an expert’s opinion as I would not wish to misdescribe them to my customers.
    Many thanks in advance for your time.
    Victoria

    Yes, several of your gorgeous purses are tapestry crocheted, including items TA10253, TA10017, and TA10239. You can see tapestry crochet change purses (similar to the bags you have for sale) at http://www.tapestrycrochet.com/blog/?p=760 and http://www.tapestrycrochet.com/blog/?p=591 and http://www.tapestrycrochet.com/blog/?p=189
