For my first crochet project, I decided to make my wife a new hat and scarf. Seemed like a good learning project, and with this Winter being what it’s been, I figured those would be things she could actually use!
I began the project with the the scarf, moved on to a test hat, which turned into a nice hat for a stuffed Olaf, then finally figured out how to make a hat that was properly sized for the project and my wife.
The first thing I had to learn when crocheting anything was how to control the tension of the stitches. I tried to be relaxed and make let it happen, but had a hard time.
The scarf took me about 3 weeks to complete, as I had another project running concurrently (2015 – The Mystery Afghan).
Such a fun project. Pretty easy, so long as I followed the instructions in the crochet book!!
Now my honey can stay warm!! And so can Olaf!!
