      Char - You absolutely should! It's a great technique.

      TexasPurl if I were to pick up an appropriate hook, do you have a recommendation?

      Char - I started with a set of really cheap wood hooks. They worked well enough as a beginner but became rough & worn quickly. I have a set of Knitter's Pride Interchangeables I love. I also have a set of Denise Interchangeables for traveling. I prefer the Knitter's Pride but won't risk losing them, so they stay at home.

    I am making my 4th Unadorned Beret, which is a pattern from our own CherylDeeCrochet . I found the band on the first one was a bit tight (not the fault of the pattern, I work tightly) so it went into the charity bag - someone with a slightly smaller head will love it. A friend admired the 2nd one so much I gave it to her. The 3rd was a special request, a rainbow-coloured “dread bag” (I made a standard band, then used a large hook and different colours of yarn for the main part). I am now making my 4th, a lovely deep purple colour which I am determined to keep for myself! I don’t have photos, I’m afraid; the first three have gone and the 4th is not finished yet, but this is definitely one of the most successful patterns I have ever come across - thanks, Cheryl

    My friend's daughter wants a "real" horny toad of her own. Her mother doesn't think it's a good pet, so she asked me to make her one that's soft & lovable. We call him Henry!

    Pattern is from "My Fingers Fly" on Etsy. shorturl.at/kEKQ5
