This week I have finalised the pattern for my Geometric Hat! I did most of the designing on this hat back in September but didn't get as far as transferring my scribbles into neatly typed up format! I won't make that mistake again in a hurry - I ended up having to make another hat to make sense of it all!

This hat uses spike stitches to create the surface geometric pattern. I had fun playing around with the placing of the spikes and I'm happy with how this one turned out. I have designed the hat in two adult sizes, large and medium.

My friend Gwen came around for a cuppa and a catch up on Sunday and we had chat about my latest projects. When she tried on the purple version of this hat it suited her so well I said she could keep it if she modelled it for me!

I really like the above photo - it will be the cover shot for the pattern. The model's beautiful hair, dusky lilac cardigan and the wintry backdrop show off my design perfectly. A big thank you to Gwen for modelling for me!
This pattern is at the testing stage and I hope to publish it at the end of the month.
Edit: The pattern is now available for £3.60 in my Ravelry Store (http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/geometric-beanie-hat) and in my Etsy shop (https://www.etsy.com/uk/listing/462743720/geometric-beanie-hat-crochet-pattern?ref=shop_home_active_4)
