Hi there! For those of you who live in the colder climates, what recommendations can you give me for crocheting a nice, warm hat?
I work with a woman who is heading to New York in October to live and work. She was born in South Africa and then moved to Perth, Australia so she’s never seen snow or truly cold weather. He is really worried about the cold, so I thought I would crochet her a beanie.
We are in the tail end of a colder than usual (for us) winter where we got an average max of 19C (66F). So you can see why I need recommendations! I don’t know if my usual crochet hats will be anywhere near warm enough for her in New York.
What stitches work best for warm crochet fabric? What weight yarn is good? I generally use DK or light worsted weight and mostly double crochet when I have made hats.
Thanks for any tips!
