  • Size: followed pattern for 18 1/2 inch head circumference

  • Colors: Autumn (Lion Brand Wool-Ease) (note: this is heavier than what the pattern calls for)

  • Pattern: Stone Path Hat - Design by Lisa Naskrent

  • Book: Interweave Crochet (magazine) - Winter 2007 - Copyright 2007 - Interweave Press

  • Hook: E (just like the pattern says)

  • Date: start December 3; finish December 11

The day the Winter 2007 Interweave Crochet magazine arrived in the mail, I looked through it, saw the Stone Path Hat, and immediately started working on it as the project to break me out of the 2-plus months of crochet burnout. Since I (almost) never use the yarn called for by the pattern (because I don't usually have it), I decided on Wool-Ease yarn in the color Autumn from my stash. And, wow!, the hat is warm!

I used an E hook even though Wool-Ease recommends a J hook, which produced a tight weave (the photo of the finished hat in the magazine looks loose) - and a thick fabric! A very warm hat!

Turned out great... I love that you made it with wool-ease, I love that yarn!! The stitches always look so incredible with it. It is wonderful to go wandering on the internet in this day and age and see what people are doing with the hat and what they think of it. Looks like a great fit too! I am so happy you were able to come out of your crochet burnout- and my hat was the catalyst! Hooray :)

Hi, Lisa - I'm *so* glad I reviewed the list of comments on my blog! I just discovered that about 10 have been made in the past month or so that I didn't receive an email for! Your comment was one of them.

Congrats on designing a very attractive hat pattern! The cables and bobbles pulled me out of my crochet dull drums! The web - and blogging in particular - have really changed how many people get information. It's a wonderful thing.
