So this beanie is worked in rounds and it is very easy to achieve, there is no increase, decrease, there is very minimal sewing at the end and the beanie looks nice and most important very warm. I love the stitch that I have used because it creates like a double layer at the back side of the beanie, it's like you are making two stitches in one, however it is that one stitch creating the double effect and for winter there is nothing better than having a nice beanie like that. The color change is not a must, because I didn't have 2 of the same color, I matched another color with it, I simply attached the two yarn threads together and continued working. Also for the number of stitches, the written pattern is based on medium/ large size, you can make around 50 chains for medium size, bear in mind that this is a chunky yarn.    PDF PATTERN: ETSY RAVELRY Materials: Kar

How I spend Ramadan in Doha, Qatar

today was the first day of Ramadan, and for me is the scariest day, if it passes quietly and peacefully than the rest of the month will be amazing, if not than it will be difficult.

Why? because I don't prepare for it like many other people, to be able to fast Ramadan without suffering, you need  to have a habit to fast one or two days weekly in normal days ( you practice fasting in order to make it a habit) but a conscious habit!

Also it is difficult because some people are addicted to either smoking, coffee or tea.

For me, if I don't drink coffee in the morning than my day is hell ( I get a strong headache and it feels like a big stone lying on my eyes).

So the secret to succeed  fasting in Ramadan apart from practicing throughout the year, is to do SOHOUR.

Sohour is, drink you favorite drink ( for me is coffee) and eat  whatever you need to keep you kind of full, this has to happen before the first call to prayer, early in the morning.

So today, I was amazed and happy because I was able to fast the first day without feeling weak or having a headache and it was a successful day!!

So for all the Muslims, RAMADAN KAREEM and for everyone happy days ahead!!!
