Cooler temperatures have started trickling in where I live. Fall is returning and so is the need for knitwear. A close fitting cap makes an excellent bike hat to wear under your helmet. It provides extra warmth and some extra cushioning. A cable pattern gives this hat great texture. Though this pattern is for intermediate knitters, if you are a beginner knitter who wants to level up this is an excellent project to do so. Once mastered, cables are easy to do and are an impressive addition to knitted gifts.

Hi, my name’s Crystal! I’m a wife and stay at home mom to two kids, E & O and we’re expecting baby P very soon. I have been crocheting ever since my oldest was born. I had tried to learn for years by reading books with little success, but then one day I came across tutorials on the internet and it finally all made sense! I’ve never looked back.
I started my blog, Marching North to share what I’ve come up with, as well as things I’ve made following patterns I’ve found online from all the super talented crocheters out there (giving them all due credit of course!)
Easter is right around the corner! My kids have been making me aware of that for a couple of weeks now. My daughter is a big fan of rainbows and colorful things so I thought this rainbow Easter bonnet hat would be perfect for her. I imagine she’ll be wearing it any time it’s cold enough, not just at Easter time! It makes me feel so good when I make them something and they actually want to wear it!
