I'm going to New Zealand at the beginning of May and I am really worrying about getting cold. Here one light jumper is usually enough to make you feel warm. It will be freezing! I don't think there will be snow but we're going to the south island so it could be pretty bad.
So with that in mind I found the only wool yarn I have and made a beanie. I kinda just stitched it from about 6 patterns so it doesn't look quite like anything I've seen.
Not the best photos but you get the idea :D I crocheted the beanie part and then crocheted the band and then sewed them together.
And because I can, a photo testing the length of the beanie part.
