So, in my first week of crocheting, I made myself a winter set. The first thing I made was a slouchy hat. I was kind of going for a Rastafari look. I used this lady's awesome pattern which you can find here.
here. VERY COOL PATTERN!!! Now, i did use a different yarn than this author suggested. I chose a bulky yarn that would be warm but match the colors in the hat that I made. The lady who originated this pattern made her scarf super wide so it could double as a shawl. I was going for a skinny, long scarf, which is what I like and it came out beautifully in only four rows. She made this pattern for all chaining and no complicated stictches!!
here. Now, I used the same yarn I used for the scarf on these, and I do suggest picking something closer to what the author of the pattern suggests. This big bulky yarn was hard to work with making these things. But, they are going to be super warm! I have such cold hands, but rarely wear gloves because they hinder my activity too much. But these are so perfect! Now I can not freeze my hands off at art shows! Happy crocheting!!
