1  Thick and cosy hat - my first Crafster item! in Crochet: Completed Projects by RavingRabbit on: January 14, 2008 03:34:49 PM

I don't think this is going to work!  I've manged to get the pictures into the gallery on here.  But I can't figure out getting them into this post.  Sorry if nothing appears.

Anyway - this is a hat made from beatiful 100% wool bought here in Turkey.  It's 3 strands of the same multi-coloured yarn worked together, so the finished result is extremely cosy and warm.  The top-stitch detail is worked with 6 strands.  I did work from a pattern, but have had to adapt it so much as I went along - that it is a lot different from the original.  I do love the stitch though, it looks really different and was so easy to achieve. 

I'm going to do one next in chunky chenille - I think that black, brown and cream together would work well; but I'll add more stitches in next time for a floppier effect.

Hmmm - the photos are here - but a bit hap-hazard.  No doubt I'll get the hang of it eventually. Smiley
