|Romanesque arch crochet pattern - future hatband!|
Oh, it's upside-down in the pic ... I'll have the arches going upwards on the hat. I'm doing it up in size 10 lavender crochet thread using my 2.75mm/size1 steel hook. The crochet thread is a smidge thinner than the craft cord, but mainly because it is spun tighter, but I used the same hook on the test piece.
I think I've discovered where the problem is on the curling - my start chain curls and I am not certain why. Gloria asked if I was crocheting too tightly in chat the other night, and that is possible although I keep seeing about a quarter of free crochet patterns online having a note about the person writing it saying s/he crochets tightly.
I have more pictures of other designs, but right now am in a "drop everything else and do this project" mood, so hatband it is. I really want to dump the black satin blanket binding test band. I also need to give the blocking/shaping/starching idea a go soon.
