Welcome to November! Now that Halloween is over, it’s slightly less stressful. My half marathon is over (woo, all that training can now die down a little aka 2 hour runs are long, but 1 hour runs = whatever), and I only have 2 more craft shows!
A few weeks ago, my friend asked for an Ewok hood for so I looked at the picture she sent me and made this up as I went.
I made a scarf, and then a smaller, but thicker, rectangle for the hood. I sewed them together and this is the outcome. I might have made the hood too big, but it drapes really nicely now. I also put a little button on it in case she wanted to hold the scarf together more securely.
It’s really warm!
Happy belated Halloween, everyone! (You go get that Halloween candy on sale now.) Happy crocheting until next time!
So, not a huge fan.
The picture in the pattern looks a lot better. The “flowers” are weird. There’s no real guidance on where to sew them, so I just used it to cover the seam that’s around the hat, since it’s made in two parts. This pattern was in Simply Crochet and was written by Margaret Hubert.
I’ve wanted a slouchy hat for a while. Actually, I really don’t know what they’re called, but I like to call them slouchy hats. Anyway, I found a pattern on Ravelry, and it looked kinda nice. It’s from Berroco, and you can have it here.
The hat was really tight. I had to frog it a few times around the band and adjust the size. It didn’t turn out the way I wanted it to. It just doesn’t look as slouchy. I think I’m going to have to find a new pattern. Maybe I’ll just donate this hat- someone with a smaller head will definitely appreciate it. 🙂
It’s May! I realize that there weren’t many updates in April. I’ve been a bit busy- defending thesis, getting a job, trying to find a new place to live, etc. But those are all just excuses! I’ll try to be more diligent about updating this blog now, but no guarantees until I find a new place and move, which won’t be until next month.
In other news, tomorrow is the Kentucky Derby, where mint jubilees are drunk and probably the only time fancy hats are worn in America. (I’m looking at you, royal wedding attire.)
Crochet Concupiscence has a wonderful post of 100 unique crochet hats. Here’s a couple:
