I love the end of the year. It’s hard to believe that it’s already time to evaluate my goals! I keep all my goals on a handwritten list taped to my desk. I use the last week of every December to evaluate them, to see how well I did and how I can raise the bar for the upcoming year. It’s a lot of fun, and goals can truly be achieved if you work hard and keep your internal voice positive. As I was working on my goals, I decided to crochet a new hat, because I am obsessed with hats (apparently). I have had this wool tweed yarn in my stash for a while and I decided to break it out and make something. I settled on the idea for this Crochet Confetti Tweed Slouchy. I thought the tweed was very fitting for the end of the year, a nod to NYE and confetti, don’t you think?
It’s crazy how a different yarn choice can turn a pattern into something new. This hat is not a new pattern, it’s the hat I made with my Grand Prismatic Spring yarn, my Teton Springs Hat. I love the simple texture the stitches create, and I though it would be so pretty in a maroon tweed.
CROCHET CONFETTI TWEED SLOUCHY
The Tetons Spring Hat is such a simple design that you can change it up to suit your liking. I made my original Teton Springs Hat a bit more fitted, but I decided to make this Confetti Tweed Slouchy a bit longer so I added 2 rows of dc decreases on top.
I love how my hats looks, but I admit, this 100% wool yarn is not the softest. I ordered some Kookabura Soap, the reviews say it softens wool, and I am going to try a few other things to try and soften this hat. It’s so, so pretty that I am determined to not only love the look of the yarn, but the feel as well. I have spent the weekend trying to find other tweed yarns that are as pretty as Wool of Andes Tweed with no luck, so let me know if you have a favorite tweed yarn. I am obsessed!
