New Crochet Beanie Hat Pattern in my shop - Mariana.

Mariana Crochet Hat Pattern - Reversible Slouchy Beanie Crochet Hat - Medium, Large sizes - Boho - Hippie Style Warm Wool Hat - PDF instant download

This pattern is inspired by nature - the unknown mystery of deep sea and Mariana Trench.
I crocheted it at Cape May, NJ beach, while looking at the sea and swimming by dolphins.
The hat is made with fingering weight yarn. While it's not bulky, it's very warm due to 100% wool. Try it once, you never go back to wearing acrylic garments. Only wool keeps you warm and cozy even when wet.

See all the details and more pictures at this pattern on-line page (clickable link).
Happy crocheting, my friends!

Wrong Side (I find it even more interesting):

Sneak peek on new crochet pattern in work. Soon available on outstandingcrochet.com

I made some pictures today and submitted a pattern proposal to Knit Picks independent designer program. I am going to work on the pattern for the rest of this week.

Last week-end we were camping in a crazy heat! On top of it I got a new natural sunscreen. I guess it can't be more natural because while everybody else was enjoying the beach, three of us were attacked by flies. It would be funny if it wasn't so sad - we had to wear long sleeves and wrap in towels in that heat!!! I was so puzzled over the reason my family appears to be so delicious to flies until I read the list of inactive ingredients, that included coconut oil and other "tasty" oils....
So, ladies, be aware of Goddess Garden Organics Sport Natural Sunscreen! While it's made with best intentions, if there is a slight chance of flies, stay clear! :))

Happy crocheting and enjoy the rest of summer, my friends!
