I decided it was about time I learned to crochet - properly as opposed to doing the twiddly bits on things I've knitted (picot edges and stuff)
So I bought this cute little book:
which is a fantastic, clear and friendly guide to crochet. Although it's got quite a few patterns in there, I decided to have a go at something I thought I'd wear. This hat pattern is taken from Kim Hargreaves Breeze book. It was unravelled more times than I care to mention but in the end it worked and became a wearable, funky hat.
