I took it into my head that I wanted a crochet cloche hat. I learnt to crochet at a young age and for some time it was my craft of choice but I mostly crocheted squares for cushion covers or lap blankets. It has been since I did any crochet and my memory which stitch was a little vague so I looked them up on the internet. However, how to hold the hook, loop the thread and pull through all came flooding back to me as soon as I picked up the hook. It is as if the hands have their own memory and when you practice a movement or action over and over, they never forget it.
The pattern I choose was quite simple and I was able to finish the hat in a couple of evenings.
