Yesterday I finished crocheting my first item of clothing! It’s from a pattern I’ve had my eye on since I first started crocheting a few months ago, and I finally felt confident enough to tackle it.
Excuse the horrible photo of me modelling said hat, please. The beret is done using a crochet stitch called a puff stitch, which took me a little bit of time to master. The whole time I was crocheting it, I was worried about it being too big – a lot of people on Ravelry said theirs ended up too big – but it ended up being a little bit too small. I must have a large head! I’m planning to make another one and add a few rows to it to make it bigger, because it really is an adorable hat! You can find the pattern for it here. I used Moda Vera Merino Blend yarn, in colour 418 and a size 4.5mm hook.
PS: If anyone is confused about the title for this post, Dominos Pizza launched a short-lived campaign a while back to try and make the word ‘puff’ synonymous with all things cool. Clearly they failed in this ridiculous endeavour, but I can’t resist slipping it into conversation every once in a while.
