My daughter started complaining about having cold ears while cycling in the morning.
Aha! A perfect reason to crochet a new winter hat, matching her new winter coat.
The pattern of this cute newsboy hat is designed by Ana Benson, it is a free pattern, you will find the pattern OVER HERE
The pattern comes in several sizes, from baby up to adult. I created the one for "child" 4 - 10 years.
I have to admit..... I pulled out my crochet work about 3 times.... and I just couldn't get the weave tocome out right. And since I had to make my daugther a hat, I decided not to be so fussy and accept a slightly different cable.
I kept reapeating row 11 from the pattern and it makes the weave reapeat itself instead of going over and under. Better luck next time ;)
Can't say I don't like the result though.
The yarn I used is from my own store www.haaksels.yarnshopping.com
I used a special hat-yarn from last years season. But you could use any yarn you like of course.
By using a yarn that changes its structure, you add a funky touch to the hat.
Have fun creating your own!
