|Owl iPhone Case – My third recent project|
This is not food related, but this is my blog so I’ll post it if I want to.
I started to learn to crochet last year, but I got bored because all I knew how to do was make scarves (I only made 2). I really want to do animiguri, but someone told me you shouldn’t attempt that until you become really good at scarves. Boring.
|Me and my elephant hat, this is the second hat that I’ve made.|
Since the weather has been cold, I decided to try make myself a hat last week. How hard can that be? It’s actually way easier than a scarf to me. Working in the round is more intuitive to me than working in rows and I can finish a hat in an hour or two. I did a few projects and I thought I’d share some photos (I have a half-finished Angry Birds hat too, I’ll add it later).
Besides, it’s hard to make a scarf look dorky. I love rocking dorky things. I volunteer at a zoo, so these goofy hats are awesome for the cold weather.
|This was the first hat I made. It was supposed to be an owl, but I think it looks more giraffe like.|
I didn’t use a pattern for any of these, but I did look at photos on pinterest. I’m not even sure I would know how to read a pattern if I tried. I looked up a few hats, but got lost so I just went for it. I’m going to try again, so maybe I can write some of my own. I think the cell phone case (though, it needs some modifications – it’s a bit too wide) is quite adorable and I couldn’t find a pattern for anything like it. I saw a photo of one on Pinterest (here it is), but I didn’t really like the style. I liked the concept. I’ll work on it, but since I’m new to crochet I’m not sure I’m even qualified to write a pattern.
