It is fun editing with Photo Pix, that's my cover photo.
Here is the original picture of my latest crochet project, Bucket Hat made with Chenille or Velvet yarn - super bulky soft yarn, I ordered two cakes online with same colorway, 3 months ago.
The story went like this why I made this project, last friday afternoon I unpacked things and arranged them in an organizer. While I was unpacking our new member of the family, the 3 kitties, were playing just beside me then 1 cake of Chenille or Velvet yarn pop out from the big clear plastic bag where I placed my stash. Oh, oh, it rolled over and the kitties ran after it, funny moment that made me laughed. When I got hold of the yarn, the time has come to turn it into a bucket hat, the project longtime I want to make.
After organizing and did all house chores, I got the 4 mm hook and started my project. Chenille or velvet yarn is super bulky, my hands are comfortable using 4mm hook.
Here's how I constructed the Bucket Hat I started from Round 1 until Round 8 made it till saturday but I do not like the shape, the result was not what I expected. I frogged it all!
Then, yesterday I made it again, in continous rounds.
