Talking Couple of hats! Love making these!

My new favourite quick project. The shell stitch beanie. I love making these, and they are so handy to have in the wardrobe. I pop them on DD to go out when she fights me putting her hair up. It was great when we went to a local animal safari with a water play area, when she was done in the water I popped it on her hair so it didn't get crazy. Plus they are super cute!!
Here is the newest one I made her:




And one for my shop girlied up a bit! I think DD needs one just like this!





Wow only 4 pics for me, must be some kind of record!!! Thanks for looking.

Depends how quickly you pick this kind of stuff up. I tried crocheting before knitting and it was awful...I learned how to knit and knit for 2 years. One day, I decided to try to crochet again and I found it much easier. Part of the intimidation factor is definitely reading the patterns. All the short forms and stuff makes them seem scary. I loved this pattern and it has so far been my favourite crochet pattern.

My grandma showed me once and she was moving WAY too fast, I tried explaining to her that I needed her to slow down but she didn't figure that out, I didn't pick anything up. Oh well, someday I'll find someone to show me how to knit.

Check out You Tube. There are tons of videos on there to teach you how to knit and crochet. I learned how to do both from there. What I did was find a pattern I wanted to try and google any short forms I didn't know what they meant. Then I would find out how to do them on You Tube. I would go along and google as I needed. After a while you pick it up. Good luck.
