A few posts back I shared my experience working with a vintage Lion Brand pattern. Naturally I loved it and hope to make more vintage patterns in the future. So many patterns, so little time, so little Ben Gay needed from sitting in one position crocheting till my eyes are blurry. ha!
I always test new patterns before I make final pieces for my peeps. I want to know the ins and outs of a pattern and all its quirks. It should come as no surprise I alter about 99% of patterns I use. Every experienced crocheter does this IMHO. We just develop our personal likes and dislikes for working in rounds, rows, chains, etc. It is not a reflection on the pattern writer.
So yes my bud Willow (future stuntman) needed a cute Christmas bonnet. I brought over her bonnet and also my stash of yarn for making her a winter hat, scarf and mitten set. She dived right into that box of yarn. Future fiber lover perhaps! Knitting or crocheting as she jumps from an airplane for a movie stunt? Who knows! Anyway Willow. Thanks for all the cute opportunities in crochet.
