So there I lay Wednesday night with baby wool and a size 2 crochet needle oh and of course a really poorly written pattern off the web. I soon realised that the patterned needed thin crocheting cotton and not yarn and that even though I had 4 ply yarn it was going to turn out HUGE if I continued with the pattern. So as one does I altered the pattern and made my own very plain version of a baby bonnet. ( I have since bought the crochet cotton and will do a 'take two' of the pattern)
Here are a few pics of the finished baby hat.
We don't have a baby to model the hat for you but this teddy bear was kind enough to fill in. As you can see my first attempt at crocheting something other than a granny square has produced a very daggy item indeed.
