So I kept looking and found a promising pattern. I pulled out my brown yarn (because it just matches so much!) and tried again. Success! It was filled with big stitches for most of it, like hdc and dc so it went a lot faster. At first Kessa didn't want to wear it when I put it on to make sure it fit, but after I showed it to her in the mirror, she loved it and wore it for most of the day! She loves looking out our bedroom window and I loved the leaves in the background with her hat and sunflower (which I made awhile back). Isn't it cute?
And then BJ told me that his coworker's baby was having a birthday party that night. Of course, by the time he got home and we ate dinner, it was way too late to go. So we watched Planet Earth while I crocheted another hat, this time in red. And then I decided to make a flower to go with it. I had to play with the pattern to make the various sized flowers and totally made up the circle in the center, but in the end, I was quite pleased. Part of me really didn't want to give it away. It's just too cute and festive! Haha. Guess I'll just have to make another one for Kessa!
