These are not first ski cap I crocheted. I have crocheted many of these over the years and everyone that I crochet is one more that gets me an order for another one. The ones I have post pictures of were all crocheted during the period from December 2011 to January 2012. Many while I road the bus shopping for other items. I crochet them in as many colors as people would like. I do not just crochet them in red and white. I have used black and brown, navy and white, pink, pink and purple, navy and white, orange and royal blue, black and white, berry and holly & ivy and pine, as well as multi-color and gray. The possibilities are endless as the color of yarn combinations.
But it is the first one that I crocheted using post stitches as the brim trim. I gave this one to a friend as a gift last winter. I then had to crochet one for all of the many children at her house. Each one posted here was crocheted because of this one hat I crocheted to give to my friend. Crochet one and everyone wants one but in their choice of colors. Here below are the others I crochet just because I crocheted this one cap.
The pink and purple one was one of the caps I crocheted as another gift. This time for a winter birthday.
Below is Isaiah ski cap. This one was crocheted just for Isaiah using a multi-color and gray color also I used some scrap yarns. The reasoning behind this is Isaiah is “all boy” and likes bright colors. I wanted a hat that when he lost it as school or left on a bus it would be easily spotted.
- Ski cap in black and orange was crocheted because my son’s friend wore her’s to school and wanted one in a school color.
Each ski cap was made to order so each wearer now has the color cap that he or she wants to wear. I asked what the favorite colors were for each person before I crocheted them. Many were crocheted while I was riding the bus and going to take care of other errands.Each cap was crocheted using yarn I had left over from other crochet projects. I used yarn that is machine washable and machine dry-able so that it would be easier to take care of it.
All ski cap shown here were crocheted as a gift. I would however crochet a ski cap in a color or colors that you choose. Please leave me a comment here if you would like. Prices will not be discussed in discussions. I will never post a price here as all prices are subject to change just as the price of anything changes.
