Mixed with the saltiness of the sea, the faint smell of sunscreen creates a constant reminder that linen sundresses and late afternoon trips to the beach are here to enjoy for the sunniest of seasons, summer!
Some of you may remember that last year, with the help of one of Wool And The Gang’s handy kits, I crocheted my very first pair of shoes, the Copacabana Espadrilles! I loved wearing them so much so, that when WATG released their summer-friendly collection some weeks ago and asked if I’d like to try out one of the kits, I squealed in excitement, ready for a new challenge.
From the moment the “Worn This Way Hat” kit was sent my way, I was extremely eager to get my hands on some of their newest (and incredibly popular) Ra-Ra-Raffia yarn… Which is not only vegan, but also recyclable, azo free and non toxic – So basically no nasties! I’ve never worked with raffia yarn before, but I was pleasantly surprised by just how easy it was to crochet with, and how it worked up in no time at all over the weekend.
As per usual, the WATG pattern supplied in the kit was well written and easy-to-follow, making the learning process all the more fun and enjoyable! I was also grateful for the helpful gauge guide, as when comparing my tension I was a bit on the looser side… So for those of you who like to live life on the edge and never gauge check, I’d always recommend you doing this, as it can save you hours of work and frustration. I just switched to one of my 4mm hooks, which was an incredibly easy fix and created the exact hat size I was after!
Basking in warm, golden rays of sunshine, the Worn This Way Hat will protect you from those strong rays and keep you cool even on the hottest days! The go-to accessory for sunny days, picnics and weekends getaways.
Wide brimmed and floppy, this vacation-ready sunhat is crocheted up using a combination of single crochets and chain spaces, making it your ideal companion for your summer adventures.
