When I first learned how to crochet my exposure to patterns was limited to doilies (or centres as they are called in Guyana). As a result of this my imagination was my on overdrive and everything I made was from there. I lost my passion for creating my own designs once I picked up knitting needles and discovered all the beautiful patterns the internet had to offer. I figured now is as a good time as any for me to change that, don't you? I went through my stash and this microfiber screamed "pick me, pick me!"
This is my first time working with micro grande by SMC Schachenmayr. I wasn't sure what to make with it after it arrived in my mailbox. But I love the sheen it has. I thought it only appropriate that my first dabble into the world of hat design should showcase the yarn. The pattern is a simple one. It is a basic beanie that has some slouchy-ness to it.
I had planned on adding a pompom but changed my mind. The crown looked too cute to be hidden with a pompom. Maybe my next dabble will accommodate one.
