Brain Waves: Mardi Gras

Project Description

What are you most proud of? I am so happy that I can do more than straight stripes on a hat now. I'm still pretty new to crochet, this was my first time doing some thing other than stripes when changing color. What advice would you give someone starting this project? I made my beanie longer than what the pattern called for because of my hair. I normally wear it in twists or a puff so I made it long enough to fit over my hair.

Q&A with Mellowyellow

cimina132880714 asked:
how much can I buy this for?
Mellowyellow answered:
I personally don't sell things but the pattern for the hat is free. I just crochet when the mood strikes me and if I have the time.

I know nothing about crochet, but have a friend who is very familiar with it. I was going to ask her to make a Mardi Gras beanie, but wasn't sure of the approximate time commitment. I hate to ask her if this is a timely project. Any insight is truly appreciated.
Mellowyellow answered:
This hat works up pretty quickly even with the color changes. I first made this when I was very new to crochet while my kids were at school. So its about a 4-6 hour project.
