I went back to Kid Ewe Knot last weekend and picked up my second skein of Galway Worsted yarn so I could finish my original hat. This time I bought different buttons on Amazon and a different pom pom. I think the second hat came out as well (although I still like mine more).
One of my employees kept remarking about how much she loved my hat, so I ended up giving her the second hat. Most of what I crochet, I crochet for myself, or gifts. So since I already had a hat, the second hat was bound to be a gift anyway and she really liked my hat.
I ended up having some extra yarn left over from my hat, so I decided to try to make a cowl with the left overs. I followed the same motif as the hat and just winged it. Since both the hat and the cowl are 100% wool, I’m thinking of lining them both with a soft fleece or soft faux fur. But, I have not gone fabric shopping yet. Perhaps if I line them I’ll show off the end results.
