Following on from yesterday’s post, I have another Valentine themed hat to show you, but this one is adult-sized. This hat is crocheted throughout. Again, I used two strands of DK yarn to give it a chunky look and warm feel. Five light pink and two darker pink crocheted hearts decorate this hat. While I know some people love Valentine’s Day, I also know that it holds no appeal whatsoever for some people, which is why I thought it would be nice to make the colour scheme of this hat a little more subtle. While it has pinks and hearts, it is not the traditional red and white that we so often associate with Valentine’s Day gifts, and which I know I usually gravitate towards when I’m trying to come up with ideas for that occasion. Having used two strands of yarn at a time, I was able to make a number of soft, gentle colour combinatons using mixtures of pinks of different shades and a little white. Then, nearer the bottom, I added a little green and some light blue just to mix things up a bit. That is where I feel the “mintiness” comes in, hence the name I’ve given this hat. Largely because of the colours, I feel this hat could be worn any time it’s cold, not just in mid-February!
“Minty Valentine” hat
Approx.22cm/8 and 1/4″ from top to bottom. Approx. 52cm/20″ around the inside of its brim.
Kinda cool and minty, yet warm and snuggly at the same time!
