Crochet Makes - Beenie Hat

I have been busy in the studio painting and creating a range of things that I will share over the coming week.   One of the things that I have kept up with is crocheting.  I have found it to be a great way to relax, I've even signed up to Craftsy - a community for people who make things.  I took a class by Linda Perrman, she has a really relaxed and clear style to her teaching.  Craftsy are giving a 7 day free trial on any course, and it's well worth checking out, whatever the craft you are into.

Anyway I've been having problems with finding a hat that I liked, so I thought I would make one, and have been quite pleased with the results.  It's a beeny hat, probably better for use in milder weather. I didn't follow any pattern for this one, but will definitely for the next, it was great to challenge myself and see what I could come up with.  The great thing I am finding with crochet is that with a few tools you can make some beautiful things, and once you understand how to read the patterns then you are well away!

The flower is detachable so if you make a few that are different colours you have a new colour combination every time.  I will be adding some beads to the rim.  The black wool has some silver thread running through though you can't see it in the picture.

I made the head out of recycled bags and paper mache, will let you see how it started out during the week, will be painting this as well......  I have been seeing how many things I can make out of recycled materials, anyway that's for another post. I hope you are having a blessed weekend, and wish all the mothers out there a very Happy Mothers Day for tomorrow!
