Our last day at the beach was chilly and rainy so we enjoyed a day of watching college football and I made more hats. I took my sewing machine but was never really in the mood to sew. I was happy to sit on the porch and crochet. I shared most of these last week but decided to put them all in one post so I could have one place for the links when I want to make more of any of these.
On the top row are 3 hats I made for my nephew's wife. She's the expectant mother and she happens to have a small head. She says it's impossible to find hats that fit. I made 3 hoping that they fit and that she will like at least one of them.
The blue one is this YouTube tutorial from Spiffy Handmade. I like this pattern a lot. It's also the pattern I used for the purple one below. Kim liked the purple one because it matched her coat so I gifted her that one. For the blue hat I used Lion Brand Jeans yarn and an I hook. The purple one is Lion Brand Vanna's Choice and a J hook.
The gray mottled hat is a pattern that I've had printed for a while but it doesn't seem to be available online anymore. It's a standard DC increase rounds and then straight with back post DC. It's a very flattering hat. This one is made with Yarn Bee Velvety Smooth and a J hook.
The gray specked cuffed beanie is made with the Crochet Baby James Beanie from Daisy Farm Crafts. The yarn is Lion Brand Vanna's Choice using a I hook. The pom poms for the blue hat and this hat are from Amazon. This is the 5th hat I've made with this pattern.
The pink baby hat was made with this Crochet Shell Hat Pattern and the headband was made with the Blueberry Dance Headband pattern. The yarn is Brava Worsted from Knitpicks and I used a I hook.
The purple and tan hats are going to be donation hats and they are made with super bulky yarn and a N hook using a BagODay Youtube tutorial. It's a super simple single crochet spiral pattern and it's a very warm and nice looking hat.
This week I have got to change my focus to Christmas cards! I also have some veterans quilts to quilt.
