26 Nov Willy Santa Claus Hat
German-British astronomer William Herschel discovered in 1785 The Cone Nebula in a region of Monoceros constellation that is 2700 light-years away from earth and is a part of other nebula around the Christmas Tree Cluster, an open cluster called that way because it looks like tree of lights.

STITCHES AND TECHNIQUES USED
MAGIC RING (⇒VIDEO)
Wrap yarn around two fingers, leaving 7cm long tail. Insert hook right to left under the two rows and pick the strand up (the one that leads to the skein), pulling the yarn back under the two rows, YO and pull through the loop (do not count as first stitch). Keep working the following stitches into the ring. Remove the ring from your fingers and pull the tail end to tight the ring.
SINGLE CROCHET (abbrev. sc)
Insert hook in stitch, YO and pull through the stitch (2 loops on hook), YO and pull through both loops on hook at once.
DOUBLE CROCHET (abbrev. dc)
YO, insert hook into the stitch, YO and pull the yarn through the stitch (3 loops on your hook), YO and pull through the first 2 loops on the hook in one go (2 loops remain on the hook), YO again and pull through the remaining 2 loops on the hook.
INCREASE (abbrev. inc)
To work an extra stitch, you simply need to work into the same stitch more than once. Work one stitch as normal. Insert hook into same stitch you’ve just worked and complete another st.
Insert hook in the front loop of first stitch and in the front loop of the next stitch (3 loops on hook), YO and pull through the first two loops on hook (2 loops on hook), YO and pull through both loops on hook at once.
THROUGH FRONT LOOP (abbrev. tfl)
The front loop is the loop closest to you.
CHANGING TO A NEW COLOR
You will change to another colour by joining in the new colour during the final step of the last stitch in the old colour as follows: work the last stitch in the old colour until the last two loops of the stitch are on the hook, then using the new colour, YO and pull through the 2 remaining old colored loops on your hook. The next stitch you make will be the first stitch in the new colour.
CLOSING REMAINING STITCHES (THROUGH THE FRONT LOOPS)
Cut yarn, pull the yarn tail through the last stitch completely and thread yarn tail onto yarn/tapestry needle.
Insert needle through the front loops only of each remaining stitch from outside to inside. Pull gently to close the gap.
INVISIBLE FASTEN OFF (⇒TUTORIAL)
Cut yarn, pull the yarn tail through the last stitch completely and thread yarn tail onto yarn/tapestry needle. Skip one stitch then insert needle into the next stitch under booth loops of the second stitch of the last round. Next, insert needle back into the same stitch that the yarn tail is coming from but into the back loop only. This creates a closing stitch. Weave tail into wrong side before trimming.

LEVEL 2 – EASY
If you are looking for a relaxing project, this is what you want. These patterns are very repetitive. They use basic stitches and easy procedures.
12 cm (circumference) x 9 cm (height).
- This pattern is written in US terminology.
- This pattern is worked top -bottom.
- When you crochet spiral rounds, you start with an adjustable ring (know as “magic ring”) and you will go on work in a continuos spiral. This means, you continue to crochet directly into the first stitch of the previous round to star the next round.
- You should mark the first stitch of the round to keep track of where the round begins.
- Changes in color should be made in the final YO of the previous stitch.
