Today is Work in Progress Wednesday!
Although it’s the first time I’m posting about it here on Celebrate Life, there’s always a project that I’m working with. I’m sure that statement is true for many crafters.
WIP – I need to add a tassel to the hat, still unsure what I’m going to add to the slippers.
The chunky crocheted hat and slippers I’m creating for my four-year old nephew. I used Lion Brand Yarn; Hometown USA in Tampa Spice. I’m really impressed with how soft this acrylic yarn is, and it’s washable which should make my sister in law happy. I prefer natural fibers, but have been using mostly acrylic while I try out new stitches.
As you can see, I’m almost finished! I’m including a tassel on the hat, and the slippers still seem to be missing something… The good news is this project will be completed today, I’m including a hand-crafted Angry Birds card with his gift, and then his package will be on its way. I can see him wearing the slippers, but a winter hat
in Texas? Uhm, okay… he did request that I make it after he saw me make one for my daughter. We were chatting with him on Skype at the time.
Crocheted slippers made for daughter
The slippers have been a hit. My daughter chose the colors for the slippers above, and she’s requested that I make slippers for her best friend at school. I started on the new slippers this morning, so I have another Work in Progress.

Crochet video tutorial for chunky hat and slippers
I didn’t use a pattern to make the chunky hat and slippers, however I did follow Hecternooga1′s video tutorial. Through the comment section, I asked Hecternooga1 about making an child size chunky hat.
Here’s her response…
