Balloon Man by Robyn Hitchcock & the Egyptians
The perfect name for this balloon-stitch hat.
Dimensions: 11-inch height, medium, female adult
Pattern: Balloon Stitch Slouch Hat by Nana’s Crafty Home
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.
