Just popping in to share with you my newest finished object, the 1 hour Beanie by the Make and Do Crew. The yarn is Stylecraft Special Chunky.
This 1 hour hat took me 2 weeks to complete, but not due to the pattern. I am sure on my own I could have finished it in 1 hour. You see I was making it along with my student, who I told you about a few weeks ago. This is her first complete project so I was waiting for her to catch up as I reached each step – starting, joining a new yarn, sewing, making the pom pom. But yesterday we finally reached completion!
Here is mine.
And here is hers!
She keeps saying ‘its not very wow like yours’ but for a beginner it is amazing – its a little wonky but for the most part she stuck to the stitch count and it went really well! I cant tell you how wonky my first projects were so she is doing better than I did as a beginner.
Here we are proudly wearing our hats.
Whilst I was slowly making this one I also made a second.
This one was made with super chunky yarn and a 10mm hook.
Lastly, something that made me chuckle. The imagination of children can sometimes surpass that of adults. Whereas most adults see you crocheting/knitting and assume either jumper or hat, when Nic (my student) was crocheting in her home for the first time her so came to her and asked ‘Mummy, mummy, are you making me some trousers?’. Are crochet trousers a thing? The few examples of crochet trousers I have seen have firmly sat in the ‘just because you can, doesnt mean you should’ category. Perhaps he will set a new trend. What do you think?
