Well, it seems that almost all of my same-age friends are becoming grandmothers. And I (always on the lookout for some excuse to push away from my desk), have made a sweet little hat for a friend's first grandbaby.
I always thought that crocheting something round would be "advanced", but trust me - this was easy. In fact, I made this hat while watching the Jayhawks lose that basketball game last Saturday. (Not a pleasant association I must say.)
The hat seems kind of tiny... but so are newborn babies... so I think it will fit. It's a bit stretchy too.
I used a cotton sport weight yarn by Saucy. The brim is rolled up in the photo, but it can also be worn down to make it a little sun hat. The hooked mat underneath is a pattern designed by Anita White. I used scraps of many different colors to make the pennies.
Now, back to work until the next distraction comes along.
Have a great day!
