You know, I do love me some Drew Emborsky. The Crochet Dude, even. I have made another hat just like the four or five I have already made using the cover pattern from his In All Caps booklet. I'm gonna make the other caps in that booklet, seriously, but this one is just so nice! Now I just have to throw it into an envelope and send it to my sister.
I made this one using Red Heart Shimmer yarn. You know, I've read some articles saying that yarn was not a great yarn. I totally disagree. It was nice to work with, and it's a very soft yarn, and my goodness! I don't think the niceness of this hat is captured in this picture. Jane, you will love it, I do believe. I'm gonna have to make me one, then maybe I'll make some to list on etsy, once I get to listing things on there.
Well, then I was all finished with Jane's hat, and decided to make another, so I whipped out another little book I had just gotten, Celebrity Slouchy Beanies for the Whole Family, and made this one up. That's cute, isn't it? I like it a lot. In fact, the pattern calls for it to be made in bulky yarn and I didn't have any on hand, so I just grabbed a skein of I Love This Yarn and the hook called for in the pattern, (K, I think) and started in. It turned out nicely, I think, and the size is right as well. I may end up making a bunch of these, too! It worked up in like an hour, so it was quick, too.
Y'all have a happy, hooky day!
