Since my hats are inspired by shapes, I experimented with the triangle. The LINDA hat has 3 points. When I designed it, I was amazed how well it hugs the head. My mission was to create an amazing hat. The 3 points became a 3 sided brim. I gave it variety and asymmetry and only used 2/3 of the brim to add the loop fringes. This is the answer to the crochet version of couture hats.

The LINDA crochet cloche hat for women is dark country blue. It has an upper wide brim and loops that guarantees style and comfort. The 3″(8cm) long loops peep out of the crown 2/3 around and above the 2″(5cm) wide upper brim. The 3-sided shaped hat sits above the ears. The 3″(cm) edge sits above the brow line.

Technique vs. Pattern

A technique is a procedure used to accomplish a specific activity or task:

  • Technology, the study of or a collection of techniques
  • Skill, the ability to perform a task
  • Scientific technique, any systematic method to obtain information of a scientific nature

A pattern, from the French patron, is a theme of reoccurring events or objects, sometimes referred to as elements of a set. These elements repeat in a predictable manner. It can be a template or model which can be used to generate things or parts of a thing, especially if the things that are created have enough in common for the underlying pattern to be inferred, in which case the things are said to exhibit the unique pattern.

Many times I get the question,”Did you use a pattern for that hat?” Each time I answer,”No”. I never use patterns whenever I design my hats. Each one comes out to its own.

I spend more time enjoying the personal exploration of new creation than repeating the garment. I want to create each lump and bump, my own sequence of cable stitches. I want to be the first to create this sequence!

Once you mass produce the item, it loses a sense of authenticity. Unless you were to personally request me to reproduce the item with a different yarn…such different shapes and swirls, of different textures and sizes. Take my pink flower hat for instance. The pink thinner yarn has a different effect than velvety thicker yarn. The rose is stumpier and the rows of rose swirls gets higher and higher. Wow! I guess maybe it wouldn’t be much mass production anymore!

Take patterns on the other hand. There was an original designer before you ever came along. Following patterns are for the novice…one who has repeated the original pattern. The original paid designer has profited. Be careful about copyright laws!

There is nothing wrong with following a pattern, but it goes only so far. Tweak it and twist it. Voila! It’s your own design. This explains why authenticity has a nice name.
