Sindy’s Beach Set

Yay! I’ve completed the perfect pattern for the upcoming bank holiday weekend.

Sindy’s Beach Set

This little pattern is quick to make, I made it in two evenings. It consists of a t-shirt, shorts, bag and hat. The pattern is mostly knitted, with the hat being crocheted.

The pattern worked out well, apart from the hat. As you can see, the yellow hat, made from the pattern just sat on top of the head, rather that fitted properly.

So, I re-worked the hat. This time I used a 3mm hook. I also added two additional plain rounds before the colour change of the hat body.

If I made it again I might just add an additional 2 rounds and not work the final colour changed rim. I’d also work the last round with no increases to take away some of the bend and make the hat look more like a straw hat.

Anyway, the pattern is free, because it’s a small pattern and comes from a book rather than be a stand alone pattern. Also the pdf isn’t perfect, but that’s the way it is with vintage patterns sometimes.
