Crochet Project – Puff Stitch Hat

20121116-025026.jpg

It’s been awhile since I last knitted or crocheted anything and I’m not entirely sure why I had stopped.

I have several half finished sweaters and afghans (as they call it, or throws) in my yarn stash. About twenty or so double-pointed needles and half a dozen circular needles, drop stitch holders, crochet hooks, and single-pointed needles. Yarns in nearly every shade, various weights, synthetic and wool.

And yet, with an arsenal of crafting tools and material, I hadn’t even looked at a pattern for over 2 years.

That changed when I decided that I wanted to do something creative for my daughters. My oldest is in love with hats right now, and has a huge head, so I decided to knit her a nice little puff stitch slouch hat. It fits my head a little loosely but it seems to sit on her head nicely. (Pictured above)

The pattern was something I found on YouTube and only took me about two hours to complete. Since it turned out good enough, I decided to make one for my friend’s newborn (smaller yarn wight and smaller needle used) and it looks great!

I can’t wait to give it to her, mostly to see if my second daughter that is on the way (28-weeks pregnant, currently) will be able to wear it when she arrives. I don’t currently have a photo of it, but hopefully I’ll post a photo of it on my friend’s daughter.
