The Yarn

The yarn I selected for this month’s project is called Homespun Prism DK. It was sent to me as part of the Brand Ambassador program with King Cole Yarn.

This beautiful blended yarn is crafted with Fine Merino Superwash and Alpaca wools.

Homespun Prism DK is soft and durable and features a loose ply with gentle flecks throughout. The variegated shades in this textured yarn line are inspired by nature and I loved crocheting through each different shade in the Moorland colorway.

Helpful Tutorial

Notes:

  • Stitch multiple of 2
  • Reversible
  • this project is worked in joined rounds
  • You don’t have to use a magic ring (DMR), learn more here.
  • Make your slip stitch to join tightly (we will not be working into it). Do not count the sl st to join as a stitch. The sl st is made into the first PS of the round before you turn your work.
  • Initial ch 2 does not count as a stitch.
  • Remember we are not counting the chain 2 as a stitch, so we do not work into the chain 2 when we return to it on the next round.
  • After Rnd 1 we skip all the PS and only work into the ch1sps, until we reach the single crochet rounds.
  • Initial ch 1 does not count as a stitch.
  •  To adjust the hat height simply work fewer or more rounds in any ‘repeat section’.
