I know – hard to believe it! I made something for me for once.
Jolly old England has been mighty chilly this week. We had a small (and I mean small) dusting of snow, which completely caught us unaware. So the wood burner was lit!
The blue one even built a snowman (yes – that is a snowman!)!
We went dog walking in freezing temperatures, the highlight being able to navigate over a huge frozen puddle!
So, back to my new hat. A lady posted a picture of one she’d made on a facebook page and I had to make this hat!
So armed with her very basic instructions, chunky yarn, and a hook I got started.
Dark grey, in a circle made to the size of the original designer (Bobwilson123), – who did the V-stitch and the crown. I then decided was
1. it was too big.
2. I didn’t like the colour!
So I started again, a lighter grey and a size smaller.
………..and then kept going and going and going!
But this was going to be a slouch beanie… so more rows were needed!
Then my own take on the hat – I used my reflective thread on 2 rows of the brim – spaced apart by one normal row. Pom poms added, and ends all tied in!
I’m loving my new hat!
