Round two of the dueling club will begin on Friday, October 10th. Here are the materials each of you will require:
Crochet Hat Pattern Specifications
The crocheted hat will require worsted weight or bulky weight yarn (less than 200 yards total). You will also be using a J (6.0 mm) hook with worsted weight or a K hook for bulky weight. There is no recommended gauge.
Knit Hat Pattern Specifications
The knit hat will require a skein (less than 200 yards) of worsted weight yarn. You will also be using US 8 (5mm) knitting needles. Tools include a cable needle and yarn needle (for tucking in the ends). There are some optional tools for this pattern including a size I (5.5 mm) crochet hook and US 10.5 (6.5 mm) knitting needles but, as you will see, these are not essential to complete the hat. The gauge is listed as 18 stitches and 24 rows is 4” in stockinette stitch (on the US 8 needles).
Sock Pattern Specifications
The sock knitters will require approximately 440 yards of fingering weight sock yarn. You will also be using US 2 double pointed needles (or size needed for gauge – set of five needles) and or a US 2 circular needle, if you prefer magic loop. You will also need a yarn needle and stitch markers. The recommended gauge is 8 sts = 1” in the specified pattern, so you will need to do a gauge swatch after receiving the pattern to be exact.
Once again, you will have to contact your partner to get their address, sizing information and color preferences. I will e-mail a copy of the bracket to you shortly.
The patterns will be posted on the HSKS6 blog THIS Friday, October 10th at 2:00 PM CST and the dueling will begin!
