Crochet Confidence

Look, he loves it – not!

Yep, I told him he had to wear the hat so I could take a picture – and so he bust into tears!  I don’t know why I keep making hats for this kid (see HERE where he wouldn’t model the bucket hat) – but I can’t resist, just in hopes that one day he might wear one.

I would put myself at a mid-level beginner crochet-er.  I’ve made a few very simple things, and only one or two other things using a pattern.  Well I won a pattern from Inner Hooker on The Boy Trifecta Blog and choose this Aviator Hat – super cute, and the best part – – I ACTUALLY did it!  Crocheted the whole thing, reading the pattern – I am seriously proud of it!!  If only he loved it like I do….

Reading the pattern gave me such confidence that while at my parent’s house watching General Conference of our church (happens twice a year – church on TV, as my kids refer to it – see it HERE) I found some dishcloth yarn my mom had and used the free pattern on the package (I actually understood the mumbo jumbo) to whip these up – -

Guess I’m a crocheting pro!  What’s next?!?!

    I don’t know how to crochet and knitting gives me headaches. Good job, I admire your talent and patience! My kids wear hats my mom makes them, but my husband is embarassed when they do. Go figure!

    I’m a new follower and I love the hat and dish cloths!! Great job! I’ve been crocheting for a little while and I taught myself how to read patterns by googling instructions!! lol I love it now and it’s super easy once you get the “mumbo jumbo” figured out!

    You should be proud of it! Nice job! Some day Will will be making his kid wear it – you saw that stylish blue and neon green sweater Elise was wearing over spring break (she loved it and it use to be mine!). Anyway, nice job!
