DIY Fashion: ThreadBanger

Video Demo: How to Crochet a Cool Hat

Compiled by Vicki McClure Davidson

 

ThreadBanger's Rob and Corinne show how easy it is to expertly crochet a smart-looking woman's winter hat. Recycled yarn or new yarn can be used for the project. Before running off and buying a skein or two of yarn, ask around. So many crafters have tons of skeins of yarn in closets or craft rooms. Also, pop on over to the Salvation Army or Goodwill stores in your area. I always see clean, unused skeins of yarn when I am browsing second-hand stores or yard sales, priced at a fraction of what it costs to buy new. Colors may be limited (of course), but the savings are worth pursuing.

Corinne looks positively smashing in this crocheted hat, and so will you.

It is also a thoughtful gift-giving idea that will cost you a mere pittance in materials. Step-by-step instruction is provided in the video.

 

To view ThreadBanger's embedded YouTube video without its Google ads at the bottom, click the button with the X in the lower right corner (it appears shortly after the video starts to play). However, please view the ads at least once all the way through so that the sponsors are happy and ThreadBanger earns a tiny bit of revenue. Since you'll likely watch this how-to video a couple of times, watching it at least once with the displayed ads, and clicking any of them that are intriguing to you, should be no hardship.
