coming up rose hat: ta-da!

I just have to reblog this cause it’s just too beautiful! I’m dying from the sheer perfection of it all!

not your average crochet

After a bit of trial and error, my Coming Up Roses Hat is complete!

I love working with the KnitPicks’ Comfy Worsted cotton yarn, but the pattern was a little off (or perhaps it was just me…).  I had to up the hook size and I finished about an inch before the pattern recommended to tie off (and it fits my head fine this way). The cross stitch was also done by holding 2 strands of the yarn instead of just 1 for a fuller effect:

…I’m not very good at cross stitch…

Well there’s lots of yarn left and I plan on making a few things with it, but that can wait until another day.  Thanks so much for stopping by, see you soon!
