No doubt the weather at the moment is a key inspiration for my projects!? Being a huge fan of all colours I have never understood why we in these dark months dress to match! Granted I too own a black winter coat. That is also why I love making Winter accessorizes with either a little bit of sparkle or in some bright colours, and now is definitely the time for crocheted hats.
Crocheted Messy Bun Hat(Click on the image to purchase pattern online)
Wearing this I feel like my very own personal Christmas Tree for two reasons: First my messy bun looks like the ornament on top. Second Rosários4 Divinus is woven with a tiny string of silver into the wool, which reminds me of tinsel. I made this to match my Fingerless Mittens. This is a made to fit pattern, where you use your swatch to calculate the number of stitches needed. But fret not… it is very simple!
Crocheted Slouchy Hat(Click on the image to purchase pattern online)
If you are more into a looser hat in the Winter months, you can make this Slouchy Hat full of bubbles. For this I used a very thin wool blend called Zealana Kiwi Lace, which consists of 40% merino wool, 30% organic cotton AND 30% brush tail possum – how often do you see that in a yarn mix!? Any 2 PLY (Europe)/ Fingering (US) yarn can be used for this project.
Both patterns are available for purchase through my Etsy Shop – just click on the images or see all my patterns HERE. Let me know what you think? For now I will just wish you all Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays and all the best for the years to come..
