Hi Everyone, it has been such a long time since I did a blog post that I almost forgot how to post.
Its been a rough couple of months. Lets just say that I was not sorry to see 2016 end, but
unfortunately 2017 is not beginning much better.
We are having a crochet guild meeting tomorrow, and since I have not been able to attend in quite a while I really wanted to go. We are collecting chemo caps and I had not even made one, so I decided that I better get busy. I started out making a really plain one, but somehow it took on a life of its own and turned out to be a really cute little hat. I really liked the way it turned out, so I wrote down the instructions and decided to share them. I only wished that I had made it in a little brighter color, but this is what I had on hand. I could not figure out how to add a PDF to my blog post, so I just added the instructions to bottom of post.
In spite of all, I am still working on another new book, and just about 3/4 way through, I will be very happy when it is done.
I hope that you enjoy making this quick, easy little hat.
