This is my first ever crochet.

i put 'how to crochet a beret' into youtube. i got the threadbanger video but couldnt understand it at all.all i knew was that they wanted increases followed by single crocet at first,then lots of increases,then lots of single crochet,then some decreases.

I got out a notebook,took some rough numbers from various patterns and worked out where to put the increases so it was equal etc.

It took about 3 or 4 hours(i watched pulp fiction and some spaced as i worked)


on my desk

on my head

from above

after finishing i put some single crochet rows on but it was too small for my head Sad
to fix this i unravelled the single crochet and just put the one row in so it still had some stretch

thanks for looking!

I'm actually crocheting the threadbanger hat at the moment too! Its my first hat but i found a link on their forums that had her pattern explained and it helped a quite a bit. Its really a simple hat and I had to increase a few more rows than her because my yarn was smaller. Other wise i'm not sure it would fit my head. But give me a half hour and mine'll be finished!

I made the threadbanger hat too. It is simple. I wrote it down. If somebody wants the pattern, just let me know.
