It’s been a while since I last posted! I’ve been pretty busy. Don’t worry, I still found time to design a new pattern (a Barbie dress, I’ll post it soon) and crochet a hat.
I had been looking for the perfect hat to make with my giant yarn stash. I started a hat from my ‘Easy Beanie’ pattern after failing to find anything. But then I read this post on Apple Blossom Dreams, and *poof*, I had the perfect hat pattern!
I’m surprised I hadn’t crocheted myself a hat before now! They’re warm, soft, and snuggly (especially with I Love This Yarn). It felt amazingly softer and more drape-y after coming out of the dryer.
I’m quite fascinated with the bobbles! And the puff stitches…and the flowers…there are lots of interesting textures on this hat. Lots of ends to weave too, but it wasn’t that bad. I used a size H (5mm) crochet hook as in the pattern, put in a few more decreases, and it turned out to be a good size.
That’s about all I can think of to monologue about, so I will bid you a goodbye for now!
