I am so happy to see the response to my blog for one and then for ear flap hat I posted. It's been so much fun to communicate about crochet. So many degrees of experience etc.
I have had the best time testing this pattern. I have been writing the pattern and photographing it along the way. I tested it without the furry yarn just to see what it looks like. Definitely use the furry yarn. I think it looks cozier. I'll have the names of the yarns etc. in the pattern. I hope I can read my chicken scratch!! When I get it finished I will be sure to post the pattern.
Now that this one is finished I'm looking forward to making the hat I really want to make. It's going to be called The Snowboarder. I'm looking for the chunkiest of yarns and the furriest!! It will be a masterpiece. But it's going to take me awhile!!!
My next dream is to go yarn shopping. Whenever I come around the corner and see all the colors I get so excited. If only I had an endless budget right? My dream is to have an extra $100 and spend it all on yarn!! Ridiculous eh? Not when you have a million ideas rolling around in your brain.
Baron is asleep on the couch next to me as I work in what I call my COMMAND CENTRAL.
I put my new portfolio together today to get me ready for my appointment Wednesday morning. I hope this leads to a job. I'm praying and crossing my fingers. It's an opportunity of a lifetime.
Anyway, when I get the pattern done I'll post it. It's a great feeling to know that I accomplished it!
|Here is the hat before adding the ear flaps.|
|Ear flaps added, check!|
|Adding the tassles. I find that if you add about 6 extra inches of yarn to braid and create tassle it's easier to grab the yarn and tie the knot.|
|The finished piece. Here's the ironic part, I live in Florida now. These hats would have come in so much more handy in Michigan!!!|
So now I'm off to get this pattern written up and add a little bit of graphic design to boot!!!
