|Hats: Round 3|
It is Bernat Softee Baby in Soft Peach and Naturally Caron Spa in Green Sheen. The Bernat is the yarn I previously used in the I Heart Hats post and the Spa is the same that I used to knit up my Aloha Maddie Baby Blanket back in August. I find that the Spa yarn splits very easily when you are working with it, which drives me nuts, but it is so soft. These two yarns together give the hat a very cozy feeling.
Instead of crocheting more puffy hearts, I did a puffy leaf. It seemed to suit the colors better. I first knitted up two leaves.
|Much Easier than the Hearts!|
Then I put them wrong sides together and started to seam them together with the left over tails. Once I got close to the top, I stuffed some polyfill into it.
|Can You Picture It?|
Then I closed up the hole in the same manner. I took an extra double strand set of the green Spa and crocheted a chain of about 5 chains and attached it to the leaf and then tied it to the top of the hat.
|Now, I Heart Leaves!|
I really liked this one too! I definitely make things I don't like. You may see them on this blog, but most likely it will only be the projects that came out cute. Who wants to write about their mess-ups?
The next and last hat will be this color combo (can you guess it?):
Hey, when I buy yarn, everyone is getting a little bit of it. There is no need to buy a ton of different yarns, just a few and mix and match the colors or textures. I will put a puffy leaf on that one too.
I will be in Massachusetts next weekend with my family. I may write about my socks. I hope that I can start while I am there and not just eat the whole time. Stay tuned!
