Day 191 - Are you joining Crochet Camp?

Have you joined the Crochet Camp yet?

I am very proud to announce that I have been asked to do a Guest Post for this camp & I have been working hard to prepare for it.

In other news - I have a challenge!!

  I have been asked by a friend, to crochet him a beanie hat.

Now you are thinking "where's the challenge in that?" are you not?  Beanie hats, as I know already are easy peasy lemon squeezy








This is a 2 colour Beanie, but the 2 colours are not in horizontal rows, they are in verticals, so one half is to be in RED and the other in BLACK

Now that's a challenge!

As you can see, it starts off ok

(please note that I am making this up as I go along as I can't find a pattern on the internet & I have looked and looked)

But as the hat gets bigger the stripe starts to go off course as it's working on a bias

So not for the first time, I have frogged it and started from about half way up yet again!

Possibly for the 5th time!
 However I think I've cracked it.

I used a secret formula to hide the disarray that might be lurking underneath!

Now for some Classic Crochet

My student ML sent me this lovely photo today

Just look at the beautiful workmanship on this little sampler
 ML has done a fantastic job & has made me so proud.

Finally 191 square just about made it today
