Happy April, fiber fans! I've been updating my crochet pattern files bit by bit, some with larger tweaks and some with smaller tweaks - today I've finished going over my beloved Freewheelin' Poncho pattern, a mesh poncho worked with an oversized hook to give it lots of graceful movement, and a fringed edge and keyhole...

Vintage Derby Pattern

I've always loved the bowler, a.k.a derby hat, and I think this cute but classy style looks great with anything! So I was inspired to create a crochet version, with a vintage-y feel and body stiff enough to maintain the classic bowler shape.
