Summers coming! πŸŒΊπŸ‘’πŸŒΊ

Well maybe not quite yet but at least we can start preparing for it in terms of crochet.  I’ve started to make some gorgeous little summer hats for little girls.  It started with a friend of mine asking for one but she could only find a pattern in Russian.  

Anyway I’ve managed to find something similar what do you think?


I sent this photo to my friend who then asked for a band to be added where the stitch changes πŸ™ˆ anyway it was simple enough to add a slip stitch all the way around 


Anyway I got to give it to my friends daughter who is only 3 years old, her words were ‘it’s amazing!’ A big word for a 3 year old!!


She’s way to cute, she had her hair in a high pony tail in the picture below so the hat looks a little lumpy


I’ve now been asked to make another, but in pink, with two flowers, and not using the spiral pattern, so I’ve found one using a v stitch


It took a little bit to get the sizing right, but I think I’ve cracked it, and I really like the stitch.  For this one I’m going to add two flowers and have leaves around it


Both of these hats have been made using DMC Natura cotton, one 50g ball each.  The flowers have been made using sirdar cotton 4ply, the sirdar is beautiful to crochet with, simply stunning.  

I’m enjoying these so much I think I’ll make a few and pop them on Etsy to see how they go.  I’ve just ordered a child size mannequin head this morning (horrible looking things) but at least it will display the hats properly
