Although temperatures here are extremely high (today I saw people in shorts and short sleeves), winter is coming. Yesterday evening, I therefore crocheted my middle daughter a hat/shawl. You have probably all seen the original on Pinterest. I did not use a pattern, and adjusted the pattern I had in mind even changed a bit when I noticed the thing became very big. I added some very big ears and now we have a little bear who loves to be in character.
My stash of yarn, although much smaller than my fabric stash, is
relatively big. I therefore made a brown bear hat/shawl with yarn that I
owned instead of buying yarn to make that adorable wolf. I made it with
four strings of yarn together using a 10 size hook. This meant that I
used about 300 gram of yarn for this one evening project. Great way to
clean up the closet.
The whole thing is basically just a long rectangle folded to form a
smaller rectangle. One side is sewn closed totally and the oposite side
sewn down for a quarter of the length. It looks horrible laying down,
but put a smiling toddler in it and get instant fun.
