While I was in Michigan visiting family last weekend, I set a new personal record for crochet project speed: I made a full winter hat for my cousin Heidi (including adding a flower and weaving in the ends) in 8 hours flat.
Granted, I was using super bulky (6 weight) yarn and a size P hook. But, I made the pattern up as I went along. That has to count for something, right?!
Cute hat :D
Thought id share a link for something I am ITCHING to try!!! You seem to sometimes get a wild hair…..I think this flower pattern will make an awesome "take your crochet project with me in the car" bag. If you don't have a wild hair right now you could always pick 4 or 5 similar color pattern colors to make it in.
P.S.- I did some research & found where a lady translated the German? pattern into English, BUT, it still makes no sense, so I think I will "re-translate" it today & make a test piece. When i get it right, I'll email a copy to ya :)
it might have helped if i had posted the link, right? :P
This is another pic of the afrikan flower pattern with more variation in the coloring.
I'd totally make that in muted colors (like my favorite ugly green and old-lady gold). I wonder how big it is..
