Sweden's Athletes have CROCHETED HATS!  How cool is that?

So would I, so would I! I already asked the Crochet Partners, if they know it.

I would like to know if they were machine or handmade. Wouldn't that be something to get enough crocheters together to hand make enough for a team?

River Glorious said...

There are machines that can crochet, but only something similar to a single crochet as an edge. These are handmade, and I wrote to their Olympic Committee to see if they will give me more information.

Thanks for peeking in!

I'm not sure it's identical, but it's very very similar. :)
