Christmas crafting is almost done! Only a little while longer until gifts are opened and I can start posting about what I’ve been up to for the past few months.
In the meantime, here are two hats that I worked on earlier this fall.
Size: Child (ages 3-8)
Yarn & Hook: Lion Brand Wool-Ease Thick & Quick (Fig, Blossom, and Charcoal colorways), using size K (6.5mm) hook
How it went: The pattern itself was very easy and very quick. I think each hat took me just a few hours. I could have done both of them in a single dedicated day of crochet. Gauge turned out to be more important than I would have expected for a project of this nature. I found it very easy to make this hat far too large with the recommended yarn & hook, but going down a hook size resulted in a hat that was far too small. I attribute this to my interaction with the yarn rather than the pattern itself.
Bottom Line: I’d definitely recommend this pattern to someone looking for a warm, stylish winter hat – particularly if you’re looking for something quick.
