Rubbish Mojitos

Annie dog in Rubbish Mojitos

I’ve been wanting to make a Woolly Wormhead design for ages. I had some medical matters to get through which were a bit daunting. To take my mind off things a little I decided to put a hat on the needles.

Hats are great as portable projects as they’re typically easy enough that I don’t need to look at a pattern all the time and small enough to have with me and tote easily.

I got out some handspun made a few years ago and it became a reality. Very patiently modelled by my dog Annie.

You can buy this pattern directly from Woolly Wormhead’s website here.

Crafter Log

28 Oct 2020
Cast on the described number of stitches and found that I had enough room to get around my head so I opted out of making a bigger size as initially calculated.

11 Nov 2020
Into the crown decreases and finding that my stitch count has been a little off in some repeats across the row but it’s been fairly trivial to fudge it.

13 Nov 2020
Finished the hat today. Will wash it over the weekend and then do a weigh and measure of the remaining yarn. Due to it being handspun it’s not quite as simple as a final weigh in to get the project use numbers.
