I’m still amazed at how fast crochet goes compared to knitting, and how easy it is to rip back mistakes. This was probably the most basic hat pattern I could have found, but that’s exactly what I was looking for -a simple step towards making wearable crochet items.
The back seam is a little wonky (it comes down to a V at the bottom in the back) but I figure no one will notice. Therefore, I call the crocheted hat experiment a success. Go, me!
NOTE: I’ve signed up for National Blog Posting Month (NaBloPoMo) which means I’ll be posting each day in the month of November. Stay tuned for more attempts at craftiness of all varieties this month while I try to find blog fodder expand my crafty horizons.
