Crochet Scrumble – Red Hatters At the Berry Farm

This is my latest crochet Scrumble – I call it Red Hat Ladies at the Berry Farm.

The project started off with a few red yarns. That got boring real fast. So I went shopping – but all the red yarns were fairly close in colour to the yarns I already had. Time to rethink the Red Theme. Green seemed like a logical addition; purple a bold choice. Pink and gold just crept in, uninvited, but reasonable choices, as it turned out.

When the project was finished – and I have no idea how that is determined – the piece  announced it was Red Hat Ladies touring a berry farm.

You’ve heard about the “Red Hatters” haven’t you? The Red Hat Society is an international social group for older women. The inspiration for their attire (red hats and purple clothing) came from the poem Warning, by Jenny Joseph.

When I am an old woman I shall wear purple
With a red hat which doesn’t go, and doesn’t suit me.
– Warning by Jenny Joseph –

Do you have a Red Hat? Do you ever wear Purple?

  1. I have heard of the Red Hatters and would definitely wear purple … I liked the poem even when I was much younger. This scrumble is beautiful Margy.


    1. Maybe I crocheted the music I was listening to into the scrumble. Our cable TV has music channels, and the 70’s channel is one of my favourites.


  2. Very colorful piece! I have no red hat. I did have a purple shirt when I was in fourth grade. I felt like gold in that shirt. But it’s long gone now. I haven’t seen any gold either. Oh well. Haha. Great post, Margy!
