It All Started With Some Green Yarn…

13 Oct

A winter or two ago, I took my basic crochet ability and somehow figured out how to crochet a circle. From there, I came up with my own way of constructing hats and made a few for my wife.

While I was working on another project recently, my brother expressed interest in a hat of his own.  With some hunter green yarn I set to work. Typically, I crochet a large round band before separating the project into four equal sections. From there I crochet large triangles. Then I flip the project inside out and close up the edges and the top.

I started this hat the same way, but ended up with a hat that was rather pointy and kind of elf-like.  So I flipped it inside out again and folded it inside until it resembled a envelope.

Honestly, I am completely unsure of how I did this or if I could do it again, but I am quite proud of it.

      Thanks! I am pretty happy with it. It was kind of super easy to do too which I wasn’t expecting since I was just kind of making it up while I went.

    I’d love to be able to knit a hat!

    I can just about master a basic scarf… not the most interesting of things!

    Looks great!

      Next time I make one I will try to post it step by step as I make it. I don’t know how much it’ll help though, because I really don’t have any idea how to follow a pattern.
