hats off to summer


my trip to puerto rico is in 3 weeks and i finally finished my summer cloche that i will actually wear around. my first two attempts were disasterous. the hook wasn't big enough or my head was too big. even this version is a tad off... not sure if the pattern is for a kid and not an adult head. whatever. i still liked it. i think i'll make an attempt at another summer hat this weekend.

i used a super soft yellow in light weight yarn and black trim. i also used an M hook. this project took me about 3 nights.

what i learned:
i have a big head.
i hate working in rounds
crocheting for myself is a lot more fun than i expected. it's like xmas and i'm santa clause

  1. This looks great! One of the first posts I ever put up on Yarncoffee was about making a cloche for my mom. It never worked out for me though, I couldn't figure out how to crochet in the round :(.

    But after seeing yours I think I'm ready to give it another try!

    Have a fun summer trip!
