Day 56

Crochet Beret Hat design by Posh Pooch



This FREE pattern can be found HERE. 

I needed a child size stash busting hat. I wanted something wayyy different than anything I’ve made before. I found exactly what I was looking for. My son and everyone that’s seen it Loves this hat. It worked up fairly quickly. It’s been a few rough days, my youngest is teething. The pattern was very easy to follow and was really cool to watch how it gathers Into shape at the very end 🙂

This pattern is one of my most requested items to make. It’s one of the reasons why I made business cards due to referrals from this hat!! I’ve made all three of dearest debi’s cabbage patch patterns. This one is my favorites by far! I made this one in 12-24 month size so I had to make a gauge swatch. Like they say. . .

Day 21: Purple Popcorn n Pom earflap Hat

I created this funky hat in the stylings of my Uncle Jud! It’s his favorite color(it can be made in any color) and fits most adult sizes(men and women). It utilizes the popcorn stitch so well it looks like a big poofy, goofy grape bunch!
