After completing the Sassy Scarf Project, I quickly moved on to another project. Of course I needed a hat to match my new scarf and was eager to learn new stitches. My second crochet project – the Bucket Hat found in Chapter 8 of the Crocheting for Dummies book.
Crocheting in the round is fairly simple, the most difficult part is keeping count of all of the stitches. I followed the directions as the pattern is written, only changing yarn colors for the last 5 rounds before making the brim with the main color. I used Sugar ‘n Cream yarn, 100% cotton, worsted weight – Hot Pink for the main color and Love as the accent strip above the brim. This project was an easy one and only took a few days to complete.
Truth be told, I finished this project the day before we left Houston. With all of the moving chaos, I packed the hat without taking a picture of it. While unpacking endless amounts of boxes this past week, I found the hat and was able to get Tabasco to model for me.
