Soooo, I did this little photoshoot with all the hats and beanies I’ve made since I started crocheting and knitting.. Oh and there’s also my other scarf that I made..
I started crocheting 2 years ago, towards the end of winter, and I started of with a hat that I found on youtube. Instead of going for a simple hat with one stitch, I just wanted to do something fun with holes and different stitches!
The second one was another hat from youtube, which kind of looks like a spiderweb. I really like it though. This is a black one. This channel is also the source of all other youtube references down below.
After that I did another in blue. I added a rose, though I want to get that off again because I don’t like it.
I also knitted my first hat, this was something that I posted about last year while I was just getting started on it. Find the pattern here. I love the pattern, although I’m not sure if I like how mine turned out.. I started on needles that were kind of small (sounds familiar, right?), so when I bought some bigger ones I transfered and things got better. Still, not sure.. Maybe I’ll make it again in a different colour..
And this one here is my favorite hat at the moment, I wear it all the time. It’s the same yarn as above, I also made my first scarf with it. I used a pattern that I found through pinterest (that is an amazing thing, you guys) and it consists out of bobble stitches, where you yo, insert in stitch, yo pull through and do that like, 3 times, before finishing off the stitch. It’s like an extended double crochet (US terms).
The scarf was done entirely in hdc (US terms), inserting only in the front or back of the stitch, not both. I don’t remember which it was, but that way you create these lines that look almost like a knit/purl, only it’s crocheted. This is yet another youtube pattern that I found.
So, while I was doing the shoot I was already working on a new hat, and while I’m creating this post I have finished that one plus another one.. And as you know, I have created a sweater now and the new sweater is also finished! In fact, I’m editing the video so it can go online soon 🙂
