This is an appropriate name for a hat I improvised the design. I shall believe that I will figure this out.
Size: 0-3 months Destination: Charity
I was going for something similar to the one pictured at right. I think my primary mistake was building the crown in double crochet; I feel like maybe I should’ve used Half double crochet. This hat has a weird fit.
Dimensions: 11-inch height, medium, female adult Pattern:Balloon Stitch Slouch Hat by Nana’s Crafty Home Destination: Charity
Nice textured hat, involving front and back post double crochets. I am not a fan of the construction, bottom up, like a knit hat. I am sure it could be adjusted, but I am moving on.
I had the hardest time keeping track of the row count, basing my hat by comparing mine to the one pictured on the website: three balloons is the same height. I am also foregoing the pom-pom, as the hat is for charity, I don’t like making pom-poms, and I believe paying for transportation to buy a pom-pom is ridiculous.
Smiling Faces Sometimes by The Undisputed Truth refers to the fact that I was smiling sometimes – when I figured out why the pattern kept bowing.
About The Project
This project marks the end of my Bernat Baby Coordinates from my stash…finally! The only amount left will be used in a scrap project. I was not sure how big this project would be; I’m glad that it is big enough to be used as something practical. I was prematurely thinking mama could use this as a pad for Mini Mikey due to the thickness created by alternating back and front post double crochets.
About The Pattern
I may write it up, but I am sure there are plenty out there already. I will check and if not, I will write up the pattern now that I know the secret to making this pattern coming out flat.
