Surprisingly, this didn’t take long at all. The first time, it only took five hours and the second time only took three.
I am fascinated with this yarn for some reason and have made a matching hat to go with the previously mentioned twice crocheted scarf. The best bit is that the hat is also twice crocheted. I did it up once using a double crochet stitch but I didn’t like the fit or the cold air that managed to seep in. Come to think on it, I didn’t like the look of it either.
Enter my favorite stitch: the Half Double Crochet stich. I took the hat apart, ripping it out all the way up to the crown before redoing it in thee hdc stitch. The results are quite nice in my opinion.
I especially love the swirl pattern that showed up in the body of the hat. It’s like a rainbow factory on top of my head. The added bonus to the half double crochet stitch is that its much much warmer than the previous double crochet stitch. I can tell even though I haven’t taken it out for a test drive in the chilly air yet.
There’s always later today. 🙂
Next item on the agenda: Mittens. They’re going to have to be crocheted as well because I saw a sample of this yarn knitted in mittens and I didn’t like the way it looked.
