My Favorite Hat Pattern
I usually go through phases where I have a favorite pattern which I will make over and over.
Currently, it is this Blossom Cap pattern created by Brittany Jackson. I was searching through the Ravelry website (a username & password are required but are free), when I came across her amazing pattern.
Since I have read concerns about using other people's patterns for items to sale, I contacted her through Facebook...gotta love the internet. She graciously allowed me to use her pattern as long as I give her credit.
Here are my creations (so far!)
This is the first hat I completed in Linen
As you can tell from the top picture, it is pretty small. I am hoping it will actually fit a baby--hahaha. I have to measure it still before I place it for sale.
My second try was for an adult in Fisherman (off-white)
super cozy for cold winters (I might actually keep this one for myself--shhh!).
Then I got inspiration to make one for Halloween.
I was totally going to make it look like a pumpkin and place leaves on the top, but after looking on Etsy, I notice a huge supply of pumpkin hats for infants. Instead, I placed a green flower on the side. That way, it is more of a fall hat than just a halloween hat for a small child. The flower can also be removed, if need be.
I love crocheting :D
