Look what I made
I bought a new winter coat this year, it didn't match my winter hat. I looked in stores and I wasn't happy with what was available and certainly not with the prices. Being frugal does have disadvantages.
Seeing as I have a bag of yarn and all kinds of crochet hooks I decided to make my own. I checked some online sites for patterns and found a simple fool proof one I figured I could manage.
You might not notice but I did bungle it a little. The ridges aren't suppose to be there. I did - hook through the front of the stitch rather than the back when I picked the worked up after a break. When I realized what I'd done I went back to my original stitch and did a few rows to see how it would look. Looked good to me so I left it rather than pull out all the work already done. Other than not following instructions well I also lean towards fast and lazy. Fumbling alone and a willingness to try does have advantages.
