Is anyone else out there wondering what happened to summer? I swear, two weeks ago I was wearing tank tops and shorts. Now? Today I had to look through my sweaters to figure out which one I wanted to wear! And last weekend it was so cold that I wore a toque on my run. (Seriously. I did. But maybe that's just cause 6 years in Cali made me a wimp...)
But I can't say I mind the cooler temperatures. I'm looking forward to fall! I haven't had a real fall in sooo long! I'm looking forward to the changing of the leaves. And fall veggies! (I already made pumpkin muffins this weekend!)
And! I'm looking forward to fall/winter wearing my wardrobe. Including new hats!
Like this one I crocheted over the weekend. I got the pattern from here. I've made a few of her hats. Not surprisingly this one was just as well written and understandable. I just had to make them into an adult size!
1) I did double crochets rather than half double crochets. (This was more by accident than on purpose, but I think it helped.)
2) I did an extra row of increasing for the crown of the hat.
3) I did 10 repeats of the shell pattern
(Another great thing about fall? I feel like I can spend all day curled up with a good book.)
All in all, I'm pretty happy with this hat. Now I just need it to drop one or two more degrees and I'll be wearing it all of the time.
