Here, finally, are some photos of my crochet creations – they are not wild and wonderful, but I did greatly enjoy making them.
Thank you to @HaikugirlOz for the link to Creativeyarn where I found the patterns. I had to alter the patterns, for both the berets and the handwarmers. Not sure why, but I had to drastically reduce the beret pattern – first one would have fitted Hagrid, whereas with the handwarmers I had to add – perhaps a vast difference in wool ply? Dunno, but I’m happy (as are my kids who are modeling). Have already received 3 requests for sets of handwarmers. Including one from Kid2: “can I have a set in black? but a bit shorter, with no frills? then they can be like fighting gloves!” Bless her, she’s the closest thing I have to a boy.
