This post contains affiliate links. When I first started crocheting one thing I didn’t put to much thought into were my hooks. Over the years I have collected quite a few and have learned they are just as important as the yarn. Here are a few hook tips you may not have thought about.
I have a fun little technique for you to try. After making a few of these hats I hated how my color changes came out. I came up with what I think is a seamless striping technique and want to share it with you here. I have written this tutorial specifically to go with The Perfect Stripes Newsboy pictured above but it can be applied to several striped hats (or anything worked in the round) with different stitches as well.
