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?!?!
