The Crochet Curtain Call Hat is a mix of using Camel Stitch with Front Loop Trebles to form up and down chevron texture motion.
I wanted to play with the idea of making treble front loops more textured but giving it a wave up and down format. I originally was trying to do a cowl snoodie but wondered it can be done on a hat.
Curiousity got the better of me and so I decided to give it a go and I am very happy with the finished results. The colouring that is achieved with the Red Heart Roll With It Melange is spectacular. Original is done in the Curtain Call colour. The tutorial was done in the Tabloid Colour.
