December Crochet-Along

I’m taking part in the monthly Crochet-Along hosted at the The Curious Pug!

This month it’s the slouchie beanie from Little Things Blogged. I didn’t get started right at the beginning of the month, partly because making wooly hats when it’s midsummer and 38 degrees celsius outside just feels wrong, but mainly because I only just finished making all he crafty bits for Christmas on Christmas Eve!

Christmas Day arrived, and with it grey skies, lots of rain and a need for jumpers, socks and wellies (obviously to stop us missing the UK climate!) Perfect time to make a hat then!

I struggled to decide on a colour to use, so decided to use all of them instead – stripes 🙂

I was impressed at how quick it was to make, by lunchtime on boxing day it was done!

If I had time before the end of the month I would make one of these crochet mannequins like Alycia has on her shop – such a cool idea, then I wouldn’t have to model it myself for photos!!

Here is my finished stripey hat 🙂
