Baggy Hat with Tapestried Hearts

A Failed Experiment.

It looks good, it has a total of 5 hearts, run in a vertical line, but it’s way too big. I don’t know anyone with a head this big. So I took a picture and pulled it out. Maybe I’ll try again at some point.

Fan-Chevron Scarf

This is a pretty simple scarf based on a fan stitch, and deciding how many repetitions you want, ie how long is it. I was using the left over yarn from another project, from a “Cookies & Cream” skein of a Caron Big Cake, which is a self-striping yarn. I like it.

d6 Dice Bag

20171231-Crochet d6 dice bag

I bought a pattern set online for shapes that also happen to be dice shapes, which I thought looked like lots of fun. Then as I was making the first one I started to wonder if I was making a novelty item or a functional one. Functional is better for sure, and I had the idea to keep it hollow, leave a flap un-sewn and add buttons, and voilĂ  – a dice bag!
