finished object :: #38 bobble hat
For being such fashion inspiration, Vogue really doesn’t have inspired names for its projects.
That aside …
If you crochet and haven’t seen Vogue Knitting’s special crochet volume, go get it. Now. The patterns are gorgeous, totally doable, stylish, and surprisingly wearable. There’s just something about crochet patterns that makes them hard to envision being worn on a regular basis.
Probably the most wearable is the very simple bobble hat pattern, which I’ve already made two of … (finals week stress leads to lots of knitting and crochet, which makes me procrastinate which in turn makes me more stressed). One is being blocked at the moment, but the first one has already been worn a few times.
I got stitch gauge, but not row gauge, with Berroco Vintage DK. The hat turned out the right circumference but much shorter than the pattern suggests. The color isn’t exactly represented well here; I’m still learning how to use my DSLR so my white balancing is less than stellar. I’ll get there.
I probably could have gone up a hook size for it to turn out bigger, but I kind of like it as-is. It was also a first-run, and a stash burning project. Because working at a yarn shop leads to a ridiculous stash. I mean it. Totally ridiculous.
My second attempt is with Classic Elite Alpaca Sox held double, and I adore it. Pics soon!
