Thank you Pinterest and all of you that contribute to it. I always feel like a kid in a candy shop when I visit this sight. I was already a crafty person dabbling in many interests, but this site has really given me the opportunity to explore areas that I would have never thought of before, like crochet. Never been formally taught to read a pattern or follow a chart, I did manage to struggle through a few scarfs and a Barbie blanket or two..lol. But since I joined this wonderful site I've learned so much and can sit down and follow both a pattern and a chart with no problems. So this year for all the kids in my life I made them hats. I know you are asking what kid wants a hat for Christmas. Well now I am having a hard time getting them to remove them as they think they are cats meow! :)
This first one is the "lalaloopsy" inspired doll hat. SOOOO Cute. I just winged this, as it is really quite straight forward. Basic beanie (I stopped at row 8 and switched colors) This is the beanie pattern i used., 2 small circles, and a couple of curly cues. Hand sew the mouth, eye lashes, cheeks and button eyes. The stitch in your curly cues (done at row 3).
The younger girls love them. Stay tuned! Next I will be posting the "Spiderman" Hat. The boys freaked out over these. :)
