Yes, I did it. I did what would normally take a few hours in like 3 days but it is hard to focus when you are in pain. I felt better today mostly and actually went overboard a bit. I was listening to music and was otherwise distracted and realized my headband would have fit my oldest son – he has a big head (or a hugely inflated ego LOL) So I took out a few rows and seamed it up. The way she shows to seam it you can’t even tell where the seam is at. I followed the instructions in Teresa’s (Crochet Geek) video. I crochet way tighter than she does so I had to go up two sizes to a J hook and it was still not as wide as hers. I liked the width I got with the J hook so I stuck with that. She says to crochet 46 rows but that was only about half the size I needed. I really like it and it goes nicely with my new scarf my husband bought me. It is black with pink so I may add a little black boarder later but right now I really like it as it is. It’s nice and warm too.
Blue liked it too. Only because I had a carrot for her though.
Here is a close up of the stitches. I was trying to capture the colors which are different shades of dark pink and a medium pink. It is kind of dark in here though so that wasn’t easy. I used Red Heart Super Saver – multicolor in Candy print. It isn’t the softest yarn but I think I’m going to line it with some matching fleece. I live in Alaska so that would make it warmer and help stop the wind from penetrating it.
So what do you think?
