My first make of 2013! A simple beanie pattern, some stripes to break up the black and a crocheted skull and crossbones. It was quick and fun to make and Son1 loves it, thankfully. He had asked for a Storm Trooper hat (Star Wars) but that was a bit beyond me (and, if I’m truthful, I didn’t want to make one!). I did find a cool R2D2 crocheted hat when I was browsing though!
The yarn is Rico Design:Essentials Soft Merino Aran which is a firm favourite of mine. It’s good value and really nice to work with. I’ve used it recently for several projects including:
Penguin hat (modelled by a melon!)
My “things to make in 2013” list is underway. I think there’ll be a blanket, a scarf, a hat and, well, plenty more. I MUST finish a gift that I started in the summer first though! Oh, and remember to go to the Post Office to send it!
