Although I am still finishing up some summer crocheting I am already thinking about new ponchos. I love them for the Fall, comfortable,light yet warm and stylish.

Some that may have followed some of my crocheting know that I love hats, facsinators and head wraps........Getting a chance to use my vintage bone crochet hook to crochet something was enjoyable. I have just about every color head wrap except gold. Gold really brightens up your skin, face and adds a nice touch to any outfit....I am a jeans person in the winter but more dresses in the summer.
How to Crochet the Trellis Stitch
Row 1: Crochet the single foundation chain. (If you forgot how here is my Foundation Single Crochet stitch .
Work over a multiple of 4 chains plus 2. (Basically crochet enough chains as to how wide you want your head wrap to be on your head). (I always make a couple more chains then what I think I will need, because with crochet thread it is thinner and folds nicely. For mine I crocheted seventy chains.
Foundation - Row 2 Single crochet to the end of the row. crochet one chain then turn.
Foundation - Row 3: 1 sc into the 6th ch from hook *ch 5, sk ch3, 1 sc into next ch, rep from * to end, turn.
Row 4 - *Ch 5, 1 sc into next ch 5 sp; rep from * to end, turn.
Rep Row 4 for length desired.
If you have any questions please post in comment section.
Thank you. Enjoy~
Until the next time keep the Faith and plenty of yarn!

|Crocheted Summer Fascinator|
It has been quite awhile.
Life changes but developing a better schedule. So on to one of my favorite activities. I attended a women's conference last week which I greatly enjoyed. We were asked to wear white. I not being one to wear summer hats (unless they are made of straw or a head wrap) decided I needed to wear something different. Just what could I crochet that would be in the "hat" category yet be comfortable in the summer heat?
Crocheted fascinator to the rescue. Yarn was going to be out of the question but ribbon was just to my liking: lightweight, sheer and bendable.
Of course my favorite color purple had to be included. The ribbon pictured to the right was different but great to work with.
