And cotton yarn is another thing which you cannot find here in Lahore, not sure about the other cities. This prayer cap is lovely.

As Salaamu Alaykum Syeda. I am a crocheter and I have been looking for patterns for kufis to make for my husband. May I use these lovely patterns you have? I was led to your page by the 30 day kufi challenge posted by another sister on her blog. I may even make some to distribute at the local masjeed before Eid ... that is of course, if I have your permission to use some of your patterns (I may tweek them a bit).

JazakhAllahu Khair Ukhtee,
Zaaynab Le'Von

1: I made this cap for my son in 1995 with a very thin crochet thread and used 0.75 mm. steel crochet hook for this. I cann't remember exactly, how many chain made for make a ring. I made a ring and dc and 2 ch and make 8 holes and 4 dc in every hole. Increase 2 dc in 1st and last dc, 2 ch and continue to about 2o dc and start with decrease to make a flower shape and between you can make some flower or any desigen, which you like and after that no increase, no decrease, so it give a eadge look.

2: For these caps i used cotton yarn and 2.50 mm. almunium crochet hook.
