Every day I enjoy my new hobby. I have a lot of time on my hands so I crochet a lot. Trust me, a couple hundred meters of yarn are flying trough the air over here. Yesterday I’ve finished my very own, very first
O no, second made design. More about that one next week I do have to give the gift first before I put it online don’t you think? O, and I learned myself how to crochet beads, super cool! I’m currently working on a bracelet…I need patients for that one…and my granny-square-plaid…and recovering from the accident…O wait, I’m drifting away from the topic, let’s focus on crochet works:
I have made two hats so far and I got a new order! This time somebody is expecting a hat adult size. Because I still can’t go to the shops to buy wool, she bought some herself. Yesterday in between my physiotherapy sessions I started. That stage is actually more important than you would think, because there is a ‘pancake-option’. Once the circle is started I discovered that it’s better that it has a cup-shape instead of a pancake-shape. The danger of the pancake is that the hat will end in the shape of a top-hat (hoge hoed in Dutch). As you can see, I was happy to see that I managed to crochet the cup-shape.
And I went on…and on… and on…. and I was half way there: That when I started to worry…will this fit?! I rewound the youtube tutorial, but I was really following one for an adult beanie.
So I went on… and on…and went to therapy sessions, and went on… and on…
And the pancake became a cup, and the cup became a children’s hat….
yes, I’ve realized that THAT wasn’t the hat I was making aaaargh!
I’d come this far, so I will definitely finish this hat. This tutorial has been followed 323282 times, so maybe I just have to have a little bit more faith. This is what it looks like now, and yesterday the model came for a fitting: it fits after all, it’s really stretchy, a couple of more rows and than I can start to finish off. I’ll keep you posted!
