This week I made a Brimmed Beanie for my 'Little Man'.
I used this hat from A Load of Craft as my inspiration.
She used a basic beanie pattern and this Video by Crochet Geek to make the brim.
I think it worked out pretty well...I also think his hat will probably fit his Momma before it fits him. LOL
I also participated in a CAL hosted at Grammy Dirlam's
It is kind of a Mystery CAL...it started with a teaser posted January 21. It would require a Specialty Yarn, a size N Hook and a Size N Double-Ended Tunisian Hook.
My introduction into Tunisian hadn't gone so well but I was looking forward to learning a new technique. Maybe it was time to dust off the Tunisian hook and give it a go again.
Becky released the first part of the instructions Saturday morning.
My double-ended hook was a size K instead of an N, so she gave me instructions adjusting for the different size.
I really wasn't sure I was doing it right but I reached out to Grammy's Facebook support group and got it sorted quick enough.
I'm calling it a Tunisian Win cause it turned out MUCH BETTER than my first attempt!
Little did I know..I should have looked for the 2nd part of our instructions though. Apparently, I was supposed to pull the orange thread out which would have left a very lofty and beautiful drapy fabric.
I'm still really happy with it though. The fabric is cushy and it makes the PERFECT ear warmer!
The best part though is that I really enjoyed the CAL. I hosted several last year but it is so much more fun just joining in and learning something new and different. Tunsian in the Round...yes, I will do it again :D
