The first hat I worked up this weekend is by my dear friend Kathy at ELK Studio Handcrafted Crochet Designs… She is an amazing designer and has been putting out some really wonderful patterns…  Click Here to head over to her site to see all of her patterns!  This hat is called Morning Frost… It was easy to follow and has amazing texture… Kathy gives several different style options on the pattern… I chose to make it two tone… and as I was taking the picture I discovered how great it looked when I turned it inside-out too!!  A couple great things about this pattern is… 1. It is a FREE PATTERN and 2. It is easy to memorize the pattern… This makes it very easy to work up while watching TV!
