|Simplicity 7150, from my pattern stash, which was in need of a good dusting off.|
On a separate opp. shop excursion, I came across this beautiful cream yarn that is just so lovely and smooth to work with. It must be wool...with something else? It was crocheted into a beret style hat from this pattern on ravelry.
....and once it had dried, started pulling it apart. One sleeve weighed 180g and formed a sizeable ball! Just a small amount of yarn from one sleeve created this hat.....
...crocheted with this pattern. The cotton finishes off a lot stiffer than wool or acrylic and I am pondering over what to use the rest of the jumper for. But NO MORE hats!! Please, if you see me making another hat, shoo me away, I have hexagons to make! And LOTS of them, too!!
