Hats Always On My Head!

It's so great to have you visit my hat blog!

My goal is to showcase the potential of even the most novice crocheter to be able to stitch together the most beautiful beanies, berets, and brain-warmers they never dreamed possible!

Please share your photos so I may place them on my Flickr page and here on this blog! I'm looking forward to sharing your hats with others and I just love to see what you have created!

Uh Oh! Not so sure about this hat!

BHP 
Version 20
Toddler Hat with Topper

Basic hat
1st topper I made. A big flub! It's too big! Ack!


The one on the right is the smaller one I just made. There's not to 
much difference in size. I also didn't stuff it as tightly.


Well...that is the smaller topper. Not sure if I like it.


Still not sure!


I'm not a big fan of it! I was trying something different instead
of a pom-pom. Fun fur crocheted with it might make it look better. 
I will give it a try another day.
I hope it works for you!

NOTES:

You can make as many rounds desired to get the length you want. This hat will fit an 16” to 18” head. It runs more on the small side.

This hat can be made for a girl too. Just change the colors!


For Your Information;

Toddler hat was made with leftover Red Heart Camouflage. I used a size H hook for hat and a size G hook for topper.
