Aussi en / Also in frFrançais

If you’re like me, you can never get enough accessory patterns.  These 2 use the same basic stitch to very different effect.

What’s this: This is the Mélo Hat. It was designed in collaboration with Julie Asselin Hand-dyed yarns.

Why should I make this: Horizontal cables, a pompom & Julie Asselin’s yarn: the perfect combo. Spoil yourself with this sumptious yarn.. be warned though : you’ll never go back.

When will this get the most use: As soon as it gets chilly outside!

Who is it for: Cable lovers, rejoice! Also, the hat itself is custom-sized.

Where do I start: This pattern is rated Advanceed – You’ll need to be comfortable with crochet & crochet cables. You will need 150g of Worsted weight yarn (used here, Julie Asselin Hektos in the Arlequin colourway) & a 5 mm hook. Other notions: a faux-fur pompom or your favorite pompom making tool, a yarn needle, and some stitch markers.

What’s this: This is the Méli Headband.

Why should I make this: A doubled headband crocheted in two crazy colours & that demonstrates your crochet cable skills. Here you go!

When will this get the most use: When it gets chilly!

Who is it for: Great for people who don’t like to mess up their hair! Pattern comes in 3 sizes.

Where do I start: This pattern is rated Intermediate – You’ll need to be comfortable with crochet. You will need 50g of DK weight yarn in each of 2 colours (used here, Rowan Baby Merino Silk DK) & a 5 mm hook. Other notions: 2 decorative buttons, a yarn needle, and some stitch markers.
