Hello lovely people!
Last weekend me and D went to Woodstock. Well, not the ‘actual’ Woodstock, but a Woodstock-like festival in The Netherlands, called Woodstock! :) (is that enough Woodstock’s in one sentence?)
Anyhoo, on the way there we made a quick stop at my mom’s, and she gifted me two big balls of yarn. She got them from my aunt because she didn’t like the colours that much, and the same was the case for my mom; not her colours! Lucky for me, they were totally MY colours :) I raided my mom’s crochet hook stash for a suitable hook, and off we went for Woodstock!
The yarn is called Choc, and it’s from Phildar. It works up with a 9mm hook; perfect yarn for a speedy car project!
I started working on something on the way to Woodstock, and finished it when we drove home. The drive took maybe 3 hours in total, during which I only crocheted for about one hour because I get car sick really easy and had to keep putting my work away to keep from getting sick.
Despite all that, I now have a new chunky hat :)
There’s no pattern, but I’ll tell you what I did: I started with a 8hdc circle, and kept increasing for about 5 rows. Then I stopped increasing and added 7 rows of hdc stitches through the 3rd loop. I finished it with a brim of 4 rows of sc stitches, the last row through the back loop only. I used 1 and a half skein of this yarn.
And that’s it! I love speedy projects like this, just as much as I love big chunky hats! It’s really very warm because the yarn is an acrylic/wool/polyester blend, so I doubt I’ll be wearing it much this summer ;)
But who cares! New hat! :D
