Christmas is coming

20161018_182127So I thought I’d try to start in time this year. I found this multicolored yarn and immediately thought of my eldest son. He loves mint green and lilac. I’ve crocheted a cap, mostly on freehand, although I checked a few patterns to see how they’d made the brim.

The yarn is Järbo Raggi (I think- can’t find the tag) and it’s mostly wool. I especially like that the coloring is uneven, so that there’s stripes blended into the multicolored parts.

Glow-in-the-dark hat

 

Here’s another of the christmas presents I made this year, this one’s crocheted with Järbo’s reflective wool yarn as well.

It’s the same hat in the two pictures, hard to believe, but true. It’ll light up when car lights or, as in this case, a photo flash shines on it.

I had originally thought to make sort of a cap, but the reciever turned it backwards, I changed the brim to a flat rectangle that hangs down in the back to keep the neck warm. He claims to be very happy with it.

I’ve never followed a crochet pattern before, and although it may not be exactly as in the picture,  well, I’m happyFoto-1111
