After successfully completing my first 'crochet round', I decided to jump in the deep end and bought some discounted chunky yarn and a 8mm hook to start crocheting my first hat.
The pattern is actually very easy-the difficulty so far has lain in the wool being rather fuzzy and thick so the stitches are very indistinct. As a beginner, it's very important that I can see my stitches. Still I saw no point in beating around the bush by crocheting dead end circles, so we'll see how my first project goes. If it all ends in tears, I can always unravel the hat (or whatever it has metamorphosed into) and start again...
