Day 70

Basic Beanie design by Bob Wilson 123. 



This pattern was a video tutorial that I found HERE. 

This hat, made three years ago, was the very first thing I have ever crocheted. I’m serious. My parents were in town and my mom found it while sorting old baby clothes with me. I couldn’t believe we found it. I was also stunned by how critical i was of myself when I made it. I hated it and thought I didn’t terrible job. It’s not so bad after all. It took me my first try to make it so the video was very easy to follow. I can’t stress enough how good this pattern is. This was my first project and I understood every part of it. I made the mistake of using a fluffy yarn. I relied a lot on my sense of touch to measurement progress.

Day 37. Artic Fury Aviator Hat

My oldest son henry has been BEGGING me to make pom poms. He’s obsessed with my pom Pom maker. It’s magic, I know it! 😉 I’ve also been quite homesick seeing all these newscasts calling for snow nationwide. I HAD to design a snowy inspired hat for him with a huge Pom on top of course. Here is what I came up with :).

Day 7

Elianna Puff Beanie design by AGHandmade.

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/6d3/71355063/files/2015/01/img_2032.jpg

This FREE pattern can be found HERE.

This hat reminds me of a nice spring day at the park. In fact I could make this hat during a nice spring visit to the park. That’s how quick It works up. With instructions for multiple designs how could you not love this design? I used Caron yarn this time. It’s softer and more difficult to use when using in-line hooks, but I worked it!
