I've been reading and replying for awhile, but this is my first posting of my own! I've just been so inspired by everything you guys have made. There's a lot of talent on this board, that's for sure.
This is my first hat. I'm not a huge fan of the yarn I used (it was some generic acrylic my mom has had for years, and it's a bit stiff), but I think it turned out alright. I wish I could remember where I found the pattern... I printed it out, and it says, "Ribbon Hat *free* Pattern, by Bec M." at the top, if that's any help!
Then I got ambitious and decided to try an earflap hat. I'm in love with this pink yarn (Bernat Cozy Wool). The white stuff, however, not so much. It sheds shiny white fibers onto EVERYTHING. Also, the hat's a little big and floppy on me.
('Scuse the crossed eyes in that last one, heh.)
This hat is a Craftster pattern, found here.
The colouring is way off in this picture; it's actually pretty grey. Yarn is a really nice acrylic I bought at the dollar store! The hat cost me less than $2. Awesome. It's so cozy and warm.
This is the project I'm most proud of. It's seriously the warmest scarf I've ever owned. It's just over 8 feet long, and 8 inches wide, all done in double-crochets.
I wanted to make this hat
to go with my scarf, but it ended up being just a touch too small for me, so I had to rip the whole thing out. I might try it again, though, because I think it's really cute!
So those are my first crocheted items! I hope you like them!
