Here is the same hat. I dont remember which hook I used but I also altered the pattern a smidge to make it bigger. I also added a pom pom to the top. [/b]
Oh how cute!! It's amazing how you can take the same pattern and make it a completely different hat! Is that chunky weight yarn?
No actually it is the Caron Simply Soft. I absolutly LOVE that yarn. It is inexpensive, really soft, and so easy to work with! They have lots of colors too!
Hmmm...I don't think I've seen that one in the store.....I'ma have to look for it. I just bought some baby chennile that I can not wait to use!
I picked it up at walmart. My nearest craft store is an hour away so I have to make do sometimes.
