Good Day everyone,
It seems I am still on the hat craze. I really enjoy making crochet hats they are fun to make as gifts and in high demand up here in the north.
This week I made some little baby girl beanies with a shell edging I think they came out nicely.
Crochet Baby Beanie with Flower
I used a self-changing colored yarn for the first one and added a small flower.
Crochet Baby Beanie with Heart
For the second hat I used Redheart Shimmer yarn and added a heart.
My daughter’s baby doll was kind enough to model for me.
Warm Winter Hat
I also finished a long over due project this week. The warm winter hat I began quite some time ago. I have just had so many projects going I couldn’t get to it. It feels good to finish a project! Less yarn laying around attached to stuff.
You can find a link to this free pattern on a previous post called Crochet Hat Madness: Projects in Progress. One reason it took me a while to finish other than being overloaded on projects was that I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do for the edging. I decided to change it and just decrease over the cables until they were down to just 1 DC which became the FPDC for the last row. You can see how the cables point at the bottom.
Chunky Modern Beret
Finally, I have been working on a new pattern this week that I am calling a Chunky Modern Beret. It is somewhat of a slouch hat but made more like a beret with a lacy pattern.
My mother-in-law modeling for me. I am really pleased with how it came out. This too is a self-changing colored yarn.
You can really see how pretty the colors are from the side.
I will test this pattern on a few more hats before sharing it with you. But don’t worry it’s already in the works!
Well that is what I worked on for this past week. Hope you guys enjoyed this post! I am working on a creeper hat for my son and a ninja turtle hat for my daughter so look for those in the next week or two.
Until next time, Happy Crocheting!
