|front post crochet in my ear warmer|
A friend asked for a baby hat as a baby shower present, and when I was looking for a suitable pattern I found this textured toddler hat, which uses a front post crochet stitch. It took me a few false starts and unravelling (and finding it on youtube - this is a good link too), but eventually I mastered the front post and finished the hat (and forgot to take a photo of it, I didn't have a suitable model, so you'll just have to take my word for it and maybe we will get some pics when the baby fits the hat!).
As I was still not feeling like finishing the shawl, I made myself an ear warmer (I prefer these to hats) using alternating bands of front post crochet and double crochet. Then I made a drink bottle cover. Mostly because I don't want the lovely bright pink paint to get knocked off my drink bottle, but it would also help with some insulation of the metal bottle.
