Blitz - Lovely Lid

Here's the next cap I finished on the first day of my crochet blitz.

lightgreen6311

Pattern: Lovely Lid
Designed by Denise Black

Pattern from: 24 Hour Crochet Projects by Rita Weiss
Yarn recommended: bulky brushed mohair type yarn - Lion Brand Jiffy
Yarn used: Bernat Harmony (bulky) in silk green
Hook: K (6.50mm)

Changes made: just the different yarn; no changes to the pattern.

A little more complex, this pattern is still done in all dc. It starts out with regular dc stitches, then crossed dc, and finally, alternating front and back post dc for the "cuff."

This one took a bit longer - about 2 hours - and is a real hit with the girls. I'm going to have to make more for ourselves. The yarn is wonderfully soft, light and warm. Perfect for those Manitoba winters. It's an acrylic that's washable and dryable in warm water.
