Pattern: Rolled Brim Chemo Cap, from Headhuggers.
Yarn: Rowan RYC Silk Wool DK
Notes: This is a beautifully soft yarn, and a simple and quick pattern. I improvised the flower using Kidsilk Haze and a crochet hook. The flower is attached to the hat with a safety pin, so the recipient can remove it if she wishes. I chose these colours for the flower as the recipient is a redhead, so I thought they should suit her.
What I learnt: I learnt that I am equally capable of producing uneven stocking stitch when working in the round as when knitting and purling… ho hum.
Anyway, here’s Winnie the Pooh, ably assisted by Piglet, demonstrating how the crochet flower could be worn as a corsage (how SATC of him!). I noticed while taking this photo that Pooh looks like he could use a new jacket. Another new project on the cards?
