Stash Bust Challenge 2014, Update Aug

Divine Hope

Halos of HopeI took a quick break from designing to work up a hat for Halos of Hope.  I have been eyeing the Divine Hat by Sarah Arnold for some time.  I remember trying it when I was new to crochet and just couldn’t figure it out.  It has been on my to-do list ever since.  The stitch pattern is beautiful and once you get the hang of it, it doesn’t require much concentration.  In other words, it is a “get in the zone” hat.  I had some tweaks to the pattern as it calls for worsted and I choose Caron Spa, a lighter weight yarn.  You can see my notes here.  This is a beautiful pattern and it is free so there are a ton of projects on Ravelry.  I love seeing the variations others have made; extra long slouchy style, stripes with pom-poms, big flowers added, sc edging with buttons, brims and bows are just a few of the adjustments.  There are so many ways you can make this simple and beautiful hat your own.  Give it a try.  If you can’t figure it out right away, bookmark it and come back to it after you have a little more experience.  You will be glad you did.

This hat weighs 2 3/4 ounces.

Total hats made in the 2014 Stash Bust Challenge: 13

Total weight of the hats to date: 2 pounds, 8 1/2 ounces.
