Hello everybody,

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.


Round(Rnd) 1: 12 single crochet(sc) in a ring or magic ring, do not join, pull the center yarn to close the ring, make a knot to secure and weave ends. (12sc)

Rnd 2: 2 sc in each sc, do not join. (24sc)

Rnd 3: 1 sc, 2 sc all around, do not join. (36 sc)

Rnd 4: 1 sc, 1 sc, 2 sc all around, all around, do not join. ( 48 sc)

Rnd 5: 1 hdc( half double crochet), 1 hdc, 1 hdc, 2 hdc all around, join with slip stitch, lsl st. (60 sc)

Rnd 6: ch 1, skip 1 stitch(st), sl st into next st, repeat(rep) all around. ( 30 ch, 30 spaces)

Rnd 7 to Rnd 13: using V stitch, ch 2 (considered us Ist dc), 1dc in same ch 1 st, 2 dc in next st rep all around, join with sl st. (30 V st). (60 dc)

Rnd 14: in back loops only showing two loops together, ch 2, 2dc in next st, [1dc, 2dc in next st] rep all around, join with sl st. (90 dc)

Rnd 15: ch 2, 1 dc in each st, rep all around, join with sl st. (90 dc)

Rnd 16: ch 2 1 dc in each st, rep all around, join in sl st. (90 dc)

Cut leaving longer tail, make a knot and weave ends.

Happy New Bucket Hat!

THe chenille yarn looks amazing. I think I have seen a similar cake and also pondered to buy it as the yarn is so soft to touch. Your hat has a cool form and your photo editing is gorgeous with the roses.

Thanks @neumannsalva thats why i frogged it to make it in perfect shape, really am happy it shaped the way I want it to be...
