….here is attempt #2.

CROCHETHAT#21

Still not that glamorous, but I think that’s probably my fault, rather than the hat’s….

I adapted/fudged my way through a pattern I found on-line and printed off, but I now can’t find where I got it from. So I’m really sorry, but I can’t link you back to the original source. If it is your pattern, or looks a bit like your pattern that someone has fiddled with, then please shout to get the credit!

I used some mohair type wool that I picked up at a flea market, and I am really quite chuffed with it!

I have even worn it out in public, so it can’t be that bad…

    It is fab! Okay, learning to crochet is moving up my to-do list.
    I can knit, but sometimes it has to be crochet…

      Do it! I love it. But then I can’t knit. See if you can find someone to show you, will be much less frustrating..!

      Good idea Helen, will give it a go! Have temporarily ‘lost’ my pattern for making roses-will make some when I find it! And thank you for your very kind words 🙂
