I have crocheted many items for myself but much more for others. Here is a picture of me wearing two of the items I have crocheted for myself. The hat is crocheted using a cotton yarn and the shawl is crocheted using an acrylic yarn. The hat actually is white strips and black and white strips. The shawl is three colors in strips of holly and ivy, pine, and Christmas red.
I have often been asked to crochet something like what I wear or like someone sees in a picture. I ask them to buy the yarn or give me the funds to buy the yarn for the crochet project. I am happy to crochet for you.
