Boys Choo Choo Train Hat

Project Description

What was your source for this crocheting project? Online Photo or Website Name of website or photo P402 Boys Choo Choo Train Hat Link to website or photo www.etsy.com/shop/BBfromOz 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!

What you will need

  • Double Knitting weight yarn
