Miss 11 has been wanting to learn how to crochet for some time and our beautiful neighbour was happy to teach her.... unfortunately though, with our neighbour being left-handed and Miss 11 right-handed it has proved to be somewhat difficult. My Nan had taught me how to crochet rugs about 20 years ago.... you know the type where you do one type of stitch and continue round and round in cirlces until it's the size you want. I had never learnt any other stitches and I'd never followed a pattern.
The sizing isn't great... as it doesn't seem deep enough to stay on baby's head but I didn't have the correct size crochet hook and I have no idea if the wool I used was suited to the project. I really just wanted to see if I could follow the pattern before buying any materials. The double flower turned out perfectly and was so easy to make.... the whole project wasn't nearly as stressful as I thought it would be and I can definately see myself making more of these as gifts. I can't wait to try another one now!
