My lovely son came for dinner again yesterday and saw my new tweed mixes...and placed his order...
Mixing a plain DK with a 3ply sock yarn, all in SC work back and forth using 4mm hook
Chain 70 join into a circle (Be careful not to twist the chain)
ROW 1: SC in every st
repeat row one working it back and forth not just on one side, until it is long enough for the head it's made for, for this one i worked 19 ROWS
Divided it into 4 equal sections and decreased 4 stitches every round until only 4 stitches remaining
sew hole together
Add pompom....leaving the choice to James
If it needs to be bigger you can just go up a hook size or two or just add stitches either will work
Having made this one l would try working the next from the top down
PROMISE 1: Progress
only half done because l made James' hat last night
Adding a 2" band of stripes 2 rows of SC for each stripe in pairs of colours
Decided to make this blanket in bands of pattern so l don't get bored with it and can do something new for each band, just keeping the same colour palete
A SHARING MOMENT
My wonderful OH bought me a very unexpected present for Christmas...so pleased with it l cried a little
I couldn't wait to add a book or two and the first one l bought was an
ENCYCLOPEDIA OF CROCHET STITCHES
Still working out what l can and can't do with it. Aren't l a lucky girl?
Love, love ,love it..Thank you Phil you're a darling xx
Any one got one? Any tips?..please let me know

TIP: Take a measurement and do a sample before you start the project
It didn't fit James, so l got myself a new hat
complete with swirl decoration and a rolled bottom
