When I was little I use to spend my weekends and vacations at my grand parents house. I remember the cold winter nights, sitting next to my grand mother and wondering what to do.There were no cable tv, no internet or video games and because it was too cold and dark outside to go play with my friends I was expecting my grandma to entertain me :). After playing all kind of games one night she asked me if I want her to teach me how to crochet. She was very very good at crocheting and knitting. At first I was a little bit skeptic, but I've tried and I liked it. She taught me how to make some of the basic stitches, flowers and other staff. But with the time I started growing up, going out more and more and left behind my crochets....Until now, few weeks ago I saw a picture of my friend's daughter with a lovely crochet hat and I decided to make one myself for my niece. I started looking on the internet for a tutorial and found an amazing blog with instructions and even video tutorials. I thought I will screw up with the hat because the only thing I remembered was how to make a chain. I went to the nearest Dollar store bought some yarn and a hook and started my hat, following the instructions round by round, pausing and turning back. And just like that after an hour and a half I finished the hat and it was looking nice. I couldn't believe that I did it myself. If you want to try look here for tutorials http://crochet-mania-hats.blogspot.com/2010/08/little-darling-toddler-youth-crochet.html. Then I decided may be if I put a big flower on it will be even better. I remembered that a couple of days ago I saw a tutorial how to make a device for weaving something like a rope http://krokotak.com/2011/01/kak-se-plete-shnur/. This site is in Bulgarian, but google translate will do the job. So, I wove the cord and folded in the shape of a flower, attached it to the hat and even made a scarf to go with it.
