Minnie Mouse hats
Back at the beginning of May, my SIL called me to describe to me a hat she had seen on a baby. From her description, I made my 3 nieces this hat. (My SIL is my biggest client.)
The hat is a basic dc (double crochet) hat with flaps & braids. I added pompoms to the top for the ears and to the bottom of the braids. I am sure I am attaching the pompoms to the bottom incorrectly, but I cannot find any help on YouTube or anything on the internet that makes any sense to me--most patterns just say "attach the pompoms"--yes, but how???
It did take me a while to find the red w/white polka dot ribbon. I had made my toddler and 8 year-old nieces their hats, then my teenage niece asked for one sans the ribbon.
