About my ongoing adventures in crocheting...
Remember I told you about how easy it seemed to follow that pattern for a hat I was trying to crochet and that I was then busy with frogging half of it again because I, generous as I am, accidentally added one additional stitch in every round which was not good for the shape of the hat? After frogging half of it I thought I'd better check if I took the right hook for the wool because it seemed I was crocheting rather loosely. And what? One gage bigger than recommended! So I changed the hook. And frogged everything. Wanted to make a new start with the right hook. I am not crocheting because I must but because I like to learn it. So I really don't mind starting all over.
Just as I was about to begin crocheting that hat again, I rethought and decided on a different hat, a hat that I actually would like to wear and not one I chose to make because the pattern looked easy.
The beret was a challenge, but only because I never did something like this before. I'd say the pattern itself is rather easy, no difficult stitches, very good pictures in the book helped reading the pattern.
I altered the pattern to change the shape a bit, my head obviously is more eggshaped than the average Japanese head so I needed some extra rows to cover what was supposed to be covered... For the hem I went for one of those fancy rows because I like decidedly cute accessories.
These adventures in crocheting will definitely be continued!!!
But now I have to get some sleep first. Good Night!
