Santa left a skein of yarn in my stocking this year. It has been a long time since I picked up a knitting needle or crochet hook. Usually, when I do, it's to make a scarf since that is a quick and simple project. This time I wanted to do something different.
I was recently turned on to ravelry.com so that's where I went to find a pattern. It didn't take long to settle on this crocheted hat. I started with the suggested hook size (I) but my hat was turning out way too big. I unraveled and started over with a size G hook and had much more success. It only took a couple of hours to finish the project.
My daughter graciously volunteered to model the result. She's a much better hat wearer than me. After looking at these pictures, it looks like the hat is about to slide off the back of her head. When I wear it, it looks like a shower cap.
