Most of you know that I get inspiration from a variety of ways when creating my pieces. “The Enchantress Bonnet” is no exception. It reminds me of the enchantress from ancient literature or from a character in a fairy-tale.
Recently, I started binge watching the series “Once Upon A Time” on Netflix. This series is a drama series that brings fairytales to life and intertwines characters from stories I remember as a child. I’m totally addicted to this show! I’ve noticed that I adore the costumes worn by the characters. I had seen a hood design and I fell in love with it. I love the texture from the crocodile stitch combined with the front post and back post half-double crochet. It looks very detailed and complex.
“Bring out the hidden enchantress inside of you! The magnificent, confident, hauntingly beautiful, multifaceted you!!”

Sewing up the back:
Fold work in half, with right sides together, so that Row 10 forms the front of the hat. Sew back seam. Turn hat right-side-out again. (See video for visual instructions on this section)
Continue with crocheting:
Pick up loop from last stitch of previous section, and turn work so you are now working in the sides of the rows along the bottom:
Row 1 (WS): Ch 1, sc evenly spaced along sides of rows all the way around the bottom of hood. Fasten off, weave in ends.
Take 12 strands of yarn that measure 48 inches and pull half through the bottom of one side of hood and tie a knot. There should be 24 strands. Braid using 8 strands of yarn in each bunch, and tie a knot at the bottom. (Do the same thing for the other side). See video tutorial for visual instructions on this section
