We were going to a place with lots of sunshine for our staff trip (our last staff trip was held 5 years ago), so I decided to have a summer hat❤ Red is always not my choice. But for this time, I still choose it because it makes me look not so dark XD
Let's have a close-up for the yarn:
I tried this waterproof yarn several years ago but gave up at that time. The shape is always different than I expected. I wanted to give myself a try to do it well. The fact is that, the horrible result won't be changed if I crochet by single strand. See,
|用單股來鉤 by single strand|
Decide to rip it after trying several times. Crochet by two strand this time, and the it's amazing!
|壓了也不會變形！ The shape won't be changed even you press it!|
During my crocheting, I found that...
How come there is such a huge different in length between these two skeins of yarn?!
Let's look at the original hat:
It's a little boring to decorate the hat by tying a strand of yarn only, so I add the edging. The point for this hat is the sewing between brim and hat. Before I sewed it, the size fits. However, after I did it, I am not able to wear it! So I ripped the part and resewed it again. If you want to crochet this hat, do remember not sewing to tight.
It ran out of 5 skeins of red yarn, and 0.1~0.2 skeins of dark blue one, so the weight is the same as a cardigan! Even so, I think it deserve for the nice looking.
