This is the Plaid Slouchy Hat by Bethany Dearden, a little crochet number I did with yarn remaining from the colorwork sweater I did in autumn. It’s not showing up too well here in the photo, but it’s pretty cute. I so rarely crochet, but I found I really liked colorwork in crochet. And what an ingenious way to do ribbing! You crochet a small strip vertically and then join that and crochet upwards. That way I was able to fit my head exactly.
This was done over the two weeks I was at home for Christmas, and was a good mindless way to busy my hands while watching a shit-ton of Netflix. Dang, I need to get myself a subscription in Japan.
