Do you know what the great thing about making your own stuff is?
It’s randomly glancing at the lost and found table at bible study, noticing an adorable crochet slouchy hat, and realizing, without a doubt, it’s yours.
Whelp, that explains why I couldn’t find it.
How fun is it to have or give something made from your own hands and a ball of string?
Hats are excellent quick gifts to make. (Don’t forget to make one for yourself too!)
The Coco Series
The idea for this hat came from working on the Coco series:
Check out the Coco Crochet Cowl
See the pattern for the Coco Crochet Infinity Scarf
Make the Coco Crochet Toddler Headband
The open v-stitches with half double crochets make such a fun stitch combo.
I *think* there will be one more pattern in the Coco Series after this hat. It is so enjoyable to use the same stitch combo to create a number of different patterns.
Making your own stuff is AMAZING!
(Isn’t is ridiculous that even though the hat is huge on him it still looks so cute?)
