I’m working on a series of sprang patterns. Some people have commented that they need a bit more information than what is in my book. Maybe what people need is something like what has already been done for knitting and crochet, books of patterns for hats, vests, scarves and the like.
I’ve gone back to the hats in my book as a starting point, describing the ‘how-to’ of these hats in greater detail. Now, just how much detail do people need? That’s the question.
Here are three basic shapes of hats. I’m starting with a rather detailed step-by-step describing the making of these three.
Once I’ve written out the basic instructions for these three hats, then there can be variations. For example, working a lace pattern on the tam, you get a lacy tam.
OK, so I’m needing to write something about how you get the lace pattern, and then how to work the lace pattern onto that tam.
I’m needing to do a similar thing for S and Z patterns. That’s this green hat.
I’m open to suggestions for patterns.
Carol acknowledges that we are on Treaty 1 territory, the traditional gathering place of the Anishinaabe, Cree, Oji-Cree, Dakota and Dene people and the traditional homeland of the Métis people. Carol also acknowledges that sprang is part of many indigenous traditions and found in various forms all over the world. Let us re-discover this technique together.
