one more crochet hat
So it is February and winter is still here in full force. I noticed my older son's knit hats were riding up and exposing his ear lobes to the cold wind so I made him another hat. I crocheted a green one that covered his ears and back of neck. I made a slightly different one for his baby brother. I didn't follow a specific pattern but started out with double crochet and ended up with single crochet to make it more dense on the ears and neck. Once again I used the same youtube videos to help me get started as I did in my other hat project.
This time it took me three tries to get the right size and I kept trying on the hat on my son as I made it. He was sleeping at the time, but I knew it might be a struggle to get a three year old toddler to cooperate during the day. By the time he woke up, he had a brand new hat with a pom pom, which he loved.
