Wanderlust

Hello all! Another finished project to share. This time its another beanie and another object for the gift pile. I am feeling really pleased with myself on the Christmas Craft front this year. So far I have completed 13 presents. I have another 2 in progress right now, and just 7 more to go after that. So I think I am on track! Yahooooo!

This is the Wanderlust Beanie, a free pattern by Kirsten Holloway. You can find it here. Mine is crocheted in Lion Brand Fishermans Wool. Seriously I would reccoment this wool for gift making – I still have enough left to make some mittens too from just 1 skein (my skein is 170g as sold by wool warehouse).

I love the texture created by the backloops and the alternating back and front posts.

In terms of modifications, I made just 1, which was unintentional. At the point in the pattern where it tells you to repeat rows 7 to 11 once more, I read repeat row 7 to 14, but since the recipient likes slouchy hats I decided to just leave the extra 3 rows in before the brim instructions.
