What are you most proud of? The uniquess of this design. I wanted this design to be very polished and look more like a knitted hat hence I decided to incorporate the train into the actual hat rather than use appliques. I am very pleased with the end result. The little puffs of smoke (made using some scraps of novelty yarn I had left over) really finish this hat off nicely. I am also very proud of my son for being such a good model :-)

What advice would you give someone starting this project? This is not a beginner project! To make this hat you need to be a intermediate to advanced crocheter. To master this hat you will need to know how to work from a graph, change colour seamlessly AND carry yarn. This is not a quick project for in front of the telly. You will need to concentrate and count your stitches carefully. The end result of course will be well worth it!

I'm a beginner and would love to join. Do you have easier hats?

Yes, I have lots of hats including ones suitable for beginners in my etsy store: The required skill level, materials etc are always clearly stated in my listings. If you want any tips and/or help making your selections, just convo me and I will help you find something suitable to your level of skill. Britta.

Britta, I think you are a very talented woman when it comes to your personal designs - I most likely will be ordering the two train hat patterns as soon as I figure out how to order - I have never ordered anything before so I will have to talk to my daughter to see if she will help me. Thank you for wonderful designs - Judy
