making a hat video

I'm still working on the new project. What is taking so long is not the pattern design, but I am making a video to go along with the pattern. I hope it will be worth the wait.

Besides the new pattern, I have also been working on squares and hats.

I've made more of the pink 9-round squares and some blue ones as well. I am using my grey Inox  H hook to make these. The finished size is around 10 1/4 to 10 1/2".

I also made two hats while reworking the video on making a simple double crochet hat. One of the first videos I made was on working in the round, making a hat. The complaint is that I went too fast and in watching it now I agree. The problem was not in the making but in the editing. I am much better at making videos now, though I think I still have a long way to go. I hope this new video is better.

In any case, I made two hats. :-)

The first is the one I made while making the video. The second I made afterward to show a different way of completing the hat. The first uses front post double crochet and the second uses popcorn stitches. I can write up that pattern if there's a need for it.

And here is Part 1 of the video on making a simple hat. Enjoy!

Happy crocheting!
