All Done #16 Cascade Luna

I have not done an 'All Done' post for a while. They are posts which show everything made from one lot of stash until it has all gone. This yarn made a jumper in January which has since been re worked in various ways: the neck, sleeve length, body length but in the end it went to my smaller friend - I think you get the idea!

This crochet hat was a quick hit. It really has taken me a few hours. Literally, I started it at 9 O'clock one evening, took it to work the next day for some lunch hour crochet, added a few more rounds in the car waiting for the girls to come out of dance club, then I added the flower at home while the casserole dumplings browned.

My big girl does not like wool on her forehead. She does not have a fringe and finds it itchy so this left over Cascade Luna was perfectly soft made from 100% cotton. It is expensive so I wanted to use it all up. I happened to get the original stash for an amazing price but it still felt precious so needed using wisely.

I added a flower and a button which I tied on with a bow. The pattern is the slouch hat from Boho Crochet. I made it with this 10 ply thinner yarn on a 4mm hook and it came up a great size for my 10 year old. It is a combination of popcorn stitch and trebles with a double crochet border and then the last round is crab stitch.

One happy girl. You need it round here at the moment, it is a bit nippy.

If you are wrapping hand knits at the moment as gifts here is a link to an awesome free printable for hand knits. I have found it really useful; makes my brothers socks look very well wrapped. I have previously posted a link to a crochet one here.

Thank you for visiting my blog. Jo xxx
