Chunky Camel Stitch Hat – Reveal!

I have wanted to share photos of this hat for ages and ages, but I finally have it for you!

This is Raina with her Opa having the best time ever!  Seriously, don’t you miss being small enough to ride on shoulders?

I managed to bribe her to sit still long enough to take one photo on her own, but she was way too busy searching for chestnuts, acorns and toadstools to pay much attention to me.

In the end I decided: If you can’t beat them, join them and went foraging too.

Now, the pattern is ready for this, and I’m going to post it in a few days.  I’ll also have more pictures, this time in the adult size!

To get prepared and have the yarn ready, here’s where you can get hold of the yarn:

Globally: Wool Warehouse*
UK: Deramores*
US: Deramores*
Benelux retailers
South Africa: Be Inspired

You’ll need a ball of Hilversum and either Eelde or Zwolle (or both if you want to make two hats like I have).

Crochet Hat Design – WIP

Last week I introduced you to the yarn for a new hat design that I’m working on in collaboration with Scheepjes and their lovely premium acrylic yarn, Colour Crafter.

This week I thought I’d share my work in progress.

You can see that I’m using the Navajo Plying method I showed you in my video last week for this project, making my hat lovely and chunky.

I’m using the neon pink for the edging and a gorgeous plump pom pom:

The pink is SO bright, I can’t get enough of it.

I could never figure out how to use the pom pom makers in the past, but now I have a handle on it I’ll never go back to cardboard circles ever again.  This one was gifted to me by my Fibre Share partner, but you can find them at Wool Warehouse* or most local craft stores stock them too.

If you haven’t organised the yarn already, head to Wool Warehouse* or Deramores* (globally), or from any of the Benelux retailers.  You’ll need a ball of Hilversum and either Eelde or Zwolle (or both if you want to make two hats like I have).

Next week: The reveal!
