I am working on a crochet hat project from the Lion Brand Just Hats book. It is the Babka Hat by Lidia Karabinech on page 39. I started this on my trip to Kansas City. I am using an alpaca wool yarn. It will be a nice and toasty warm hat for the winter. Unfortunately since I am alergic to wool, I will have to also line the hat with a flannel of some kind.
Don't you just love those little bobble stiches? There are five single crochet stitches in a single stitch. You remove your hook from the last single crochet and insert it in the first. Then you do another pull though to create the bobble. I will post back with my progress on this hat as well as the liner installation.
