It’s WIP Wednesday! I don’t know about you, but every day is WIP Wednesday around here. I literally don’t remember the last time I didn’t have a crochet project on the go, even if it was shoved in the naughty corner.
A project that’s nowhere NEAR the naughty corner however, is my new Autumn hat project!
Just look at that colour! The orange is just glorious. It glows like it’s on fire, I cannot get enough of it.
What you see growing here is the brim of the hat. I’m working it in an opposite way to how you would usually crochet a hat, from the bottom up!
GET THE YARN
Scheepjes has a complete list of stockists on their website. Most of their retailers stock Stone Washed and River Washed, but if not, don’t be afraid to ask them to get it in!
Wool Warehouse* stocks both River Washed and River Washed XL and ship all over the world.
Black Sheep Wools* in the UK also stocks River Washed and River Washed XL
Here in the Netherlands, Caro’s Atelier* has River Washed and River Washed XL, plus they’re my LYS (and awesome).
In the US we have a new stockist! You can check out DotsYarnDen who also stocks River Washed, plus a bunch of other Scheepjes yarns.
In Australia Little Woollie also stocks Stone Washed and Stone Washed XL
Now for a little video! To make the brim, we’re working back and forth in rows, in the third loop. This creates that gorgeous knitted rib look that adds snuggle and stretch. I filmed it once, then flipped it so we have a left handed and a right handed version. Aren’t I clever?
Keep an eye on my insta for more WIP photos and videos as I seem to have gone a bit video mad 😀
Next week I’ll have some reveal photos. I need to recruit my resident photographer (my daughter) to take photos of me. She has a great eye, considering she’s 8!
See you next week!
