"Beauty of handmade lies in their imperfections, anything perfect is machine-made"
Today’s project is a nice and very well explained video by Esperanza y Ana Celia Rosas, from Peru. A really nice super easy and super fast DYI project, just as we love it!
It’s a perfect crochet hat for wintertime which completes the gloves from the other day click here! :) Plumb braids and crab edges which comes in ALL SIZES!
The video is in Spanish however, I’m pretty sure you’ll realize you won’t even need the audio to go on fast with it. Still, to help you a bit here you can check out some important points translated, especially in terms of sizes, which goes from a newborn up to adult!
You will need…
3mm crochet hook
Yarn: recommended for a 4mm
45g // newborn
60g // 3-6 months
80g // 6 months - 2 years
100-300g // kid
160g // adult
Start your project with…
46 chains // newborn
56 chains // 3-6 months
64 chains // 6 months - 2 years
72-76 chains // kid
84 chains // adult
Then the work goes on with the same system for all sizes so you can just continue the rows as you worked the first ones.
When it comes the part of the reduction to close the top of our almost finished project take into account that the first 3 rows are actually the same in every size. However, if you are working on a newborn size you have to stop the standard reduction at raw 3; for an adult size, you’ll have to continue it until raw 7!
….plus 2 last raws in the end, again common in all sizes.
