I have been designing machine knitting patterns for years, but recently have been getting the bug to try more hand stitching. Having done a little bit of crochet in the past, I figured it might be best to get back into that before starting on hand knitting. Thinking that small items such as hats, scarves, wristwarmers etc might be a good place to start - being not too complicated, I then realised that many hats have to be shaped, and made in the round. What could I do? I'm not that good at following diagrams in books. Thankfully I came across Robin's 'Design Your Own Crocheted Hat' which made everything clear. Robin is an excellent tutor. She describes instructions and demonstrates in a very lucid and easy to understand way, demistifying how to do top of hat shaping. I would never have been able to work out the formula for this by myself! There was also sections on different yarns, stitch patterns and design features such as brims, peaks etc. I will be looking out for more of Robin's videos, definately. The other great thing was, being downloadable, I git instant access (mre or less.) No waiting for parcels through the post. Bravo Interweave!
