Three More Hats for Halos of Hope
Pat with 12 Months = 24 Hats challenged me this past month with who could make the most hats during the month. The winner gets 2 skeins of cotton yarn. I started out strong and completed 2 hats in the first week. But the month became busier for me and I was only able to complete 3 more in last couple of weeks. Overall, 5 hats in one month is pretty great and I’m pleased with my progress. I’m anxious to see how many Pat completed and if she’ll be sending me yarn or if I’ll be sending some to her! Of course, the real winner is Halos of Hope as all hats will be donated to them.
The first hat is a pattern from the April issue of ILikeCrochet.com. It is the Darling Baby Hat made in the largest size. I used some organic cotton yarn I have had for a while and love it. The flower is attached with a safety-pin so it can be moved or removed for washing. To find out more about the online magazine and the pattern, click here.
The next hat is a Big Kahuna made with Bernat Handicrafter CottonTwists. I LOVE the bright pinks!
The last hat is a random striped basic beanie. I didn’t follow a pattern. I just grouped together some small balls of leftover cotton/acrylic blend yarn that I thought looked nice together and started crocheting. I like the way it turned out but it was A LOT of ends to work in.
It was a lot of fun to “compete” with Pat this month. I can’t wait to see how many she finished!! Did she beat 5???
These three hats weigh 8.75 ounces.
