This will tell you who I am… My project was going to be a beanie hat for a friend of mine with cancer I picked the color – turquoise – and since I had worked that pattern a few times, it was going to be a quick delivery. Hell no! First of all, I couldn’t find the instructions! Secondly, I struggled with the magic ring. So surfing online trying to put my hands on the pattern and a good magic ring video, I stumbled on this darling hat that I joked about on Facebook. Well, the joke was that I was too young of a crocheteuse to jump into such a complicated design. But this “cuello con capucha de osito a crochet” was sooo cute!
And here I am: frustrated with my initial project, I decided to take a detour of my idea and start this new hat. [my friend will get her hat, don’t worry!].
I love challenges but this one… The tutorial was in Spanish!! [I am French speaking so the crochet in English is plenty enough] But I so wanted to do this! You should see me going from the video, to a transaltion website trying to decode the stitches and get whatever this guapa was saying. I soon realized that it was too much time consuming and scrollling down her YouTube page for more details, I suddenly got all the written explanations and a subtitled video! Madre Mia!
Unfortunately that didn’t end my misery… Look at my picture and you will understand why!!! And this is the third time it happens to me. Si Señora!
Feel free to give me some advice otherwise I will have to learn Spanish for real! Hopefully Helena will read this…
