I’m wondering why it took me so long to make a slouchie with Vinni’s amazing cotton! This is my variation on Jennifer Appleby’s lovely pattern for the Hot Cross Slouch (pattern here):
Yip, that’s me playing around with my camera and the mirror again….
It wasn’t going too badly until I tried to get a pic of the hat from the back, to show off the flower. And then, a most professional profile shot:
Next hat in progress, in raspberry pink:
And finally, on the subject of hats, Doreen showed me a beret she made ages ago, with no pattern of course, just straight out of her head. I have rummaged through books and the internet to find out how to do this vertical raised stitch but I’m not getting very far (probably because I’m inherently impatient).
Luckily Doreen doesn’t live too far away….. (unless any of you out there knows?)
Last of all, allow me to draw your attention to the link to my etsy shop in the right sidebar – took me yonks to get that right, and eventually I had to enlist the help of Ellen M in her Crafty Corner. Thank you so much for taking the time to explain that to me, Ellen, you are now my crochet and wordpress tech guru!
Hope you all have an excellent weekend. Back soon x
