When I was working on this project for Red Heart yarns, I knew it was an easy project. What I didn’t know at the time was how difficult it would be to write the pattern. And, I have to admit that it really was the most difficult pattern I’ve ever written. It reminded me of how difficult it is to write join-as-you-go patterns. Way too much text for something so easy.
What else I didn’t know was that it was going to turn out to be as difficult to read as it was to write (just like join-as-you-go patterns). So, I decided to set about making a video tutorial. This is definitely not the easiest thing to do around here. Seriously, there is rarely a quiet moment. Brianna had to contain Christian because it never fails that I’ll make a perfect video and then Christian will come screaming into the room.
And, this time, after making several attempts, I finally had to turn the fan back on. Literally over 80°F in here and I was going to melt before I could get it finished. You’ll hear the fan in the background, but I’m hopeful that this video will help you.
The pattern is for this adorable Charleston Cloche. It is available on Debbie Stoller’s Stitch Nation website here.
The hat alone literally took me one hour to stitch up. It’s only 12 rounds total. Definitely a super quick project and you’ll have plenty of time to make lots for yourself and for gifts.
Now for that video…
I hope it helps! Enjoy!
