Hello, crocheters! It’s been a while! I have been a bit busy focusing on self-health and now I am ready to dip my toes back into the water with blogging! I am coming back full force with a new category to the website crochet pattern reviews! I figured hmm sometimes I get a bit frustrated with other peoples patterns and maybe it would be brilliant idea leaving reviews. Don’t get me wrong I love creating my crochet patterns, however, other crocheters have amazing patterns too. So today’s pattern you ask?
This pattern is free.
The pattern calls for Aran yarn, 5.5 mm and 6.0 mm crochet hook. Well, I can safely say I did not use the yarn called for this pattern. Instead, I used red heart super saver grape fizz and mirage. I also did not use both crochet hooks that was called for in the pattern. I only used the 5.5mm hook.
My first attempt was using the grape fizz color. I did somewhat modify the pattern. When it came to round 9 I did not crochet in the fourth loop. I crocheted in the third loop only. I only did this since I was on autopilot and was a bit too lazy to understand the fourth loop since this was my time first hearing about crocheting into the fourth loop. I will crochet in the fourth loop one day. Just that day was not my day. I also did this with the mirage color. If you are determined to crochet in the fourth loop there is a video on youtube that can help you out. With the mirage hat, this hat became a bit more slouchy compare to the first hat. The reason is probably due to the fact I put this hat down and picked up a few days later. Whoops. Probably also miscounted a crochet round though all is good cause hey slouchy is amazing.
So my overall thought? This pattern is pretty awesome.
The Tempest Beanie Difficulty: Easy/Medium
The Tempest Beanie Beginner easy: Yes and no. If you don’t know how to FHDC, 3rd loop crochet, 4th loop, FPDC or BPDC I would say practice that before doing this project.
The Tempest Beanie Rating: A+ even though the whole fourth loop threw me off and that’s nobody fault expect me being lazy.
The Tempest Beanie Pom-Pom: A total must! I think the hat would look a bit depressing and sad, but hey! It is whatever you want to do.
The Tempest Beanie how many days can you finish it? Roughly in two hours or within a day due to certain terminology.
