My most loyal customer has been waiting patiently since October for me to make her daughter a new hat. Now that the holidays are over, I was finally able to hook one up!
Her daughter needed a warm hat to match her black coat.. after her and her husband browsed my work, they decided on a newsboy hat. One of the greatest things about this customer- she always gives me free range to get creative. I decided to throw some texture ribbing into the hat.
I told her I would either put her daughter initials or a flower onto the hat. I had my heart sat on initials but no matter how small I crochet the letters (yarn thread and tiny hook).. I just couldn’t get them small enough to look appealing on the hat. I wanted them to be no more than 1.5 inches tall. But I know I can figure it out eventually with the free Moogly Alphabet patterns.
Since the letters didn’t work out, or I should say, since I didn’t yet have the patience to figure out the correct sizes for a toddler hat, I decided to make a beautiful flower.
I searched The Yarn Box and shared 3 flower patterns I have been wanting to try with the customer. Sure enough, she picked the most beautiful one of all.
The Crocodile Stitch Flower – Designed by B.Hooked Crochet was perfect for this hat. The pattern is well written and easy to follow. It worked up so beautifully with the Berroco’s Boboli Lace (in color 4312 – dye lot 7131) that I recently used for the 6-12 month leg warmers.
