A Hat for Me

After crocheting hats for the babies for Christmas, I was inspired to to crochet myself a hat. I like variegated yarn and found this in some of my favorite colors.

I searched online for an easy pattern and found several.
Then I started crocheting.

I bought two skeins because I wasn't sure how much it would take to make a hat for my big head.

Then, I went off the pattern. I have a problem following directions and also counting stitches and rows. So, this hat is my own version of the original. It fits and can be sort of beret-like.

We had our annual freezing weather last weekend. It is in the 70's today. I may not get to wear my hat this winter but it was fun making it.

Several quilt projects in the works. Will share soon.
What have you finished in 2017?


  1. What beautiful colors! This is so pretty that I'd want to wear it even when it's not cold enough. I certainly understand not following a pattern. It's the only way to sew!

  2. I would like to say that this blog really convinced me to do it! Thanks, very good post.
