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
