Crocheted Hats


In Guatemala most of the needlework is tapestry-crochet and was traditionally done only by the men. There is no knitted work in my stock, but when the crochet is done with the regular stitch rather than as tapestry, it is what many Americans would call "knit" just by the feel; looser and stretchier. Only solid colors and bands can be done in this type work, so at present all my hats are tapestry crochet, which is a much thicker weave and allows for detailed patterns to be made.
