loving the challenge

so making hats has become something natural for me i feel like i have been at it for years ..... well in fact i have been just crocheting for a little over three weeks and i`m loving it masha`allah


so as you would have see i have already made two hats for my 10 month old ... but even that wasnt enough so i decided to make another but not using the same stitch or the same type of wool

so i found another tutorial where u you use a half double crochet stitch instead of a single crochet stitch

now the lady that was doing the video was making a hat for a smaller child but i need it for my 10 month old so i read alot of the comments and learnt that you just increase the amount of stitches ... with that off i went and as i was going i would check to make sure that it would fit my daughter

in the video the lady goes as far as round 6 with a total of 48 stitches i increased it to the 11th row with a total of 72 stitches and just continued until it was long enough to fit her head


i also added a pom pom to the top of the hat and learned to crochet a flower so i made a small and larger one and add a button to the middle and attached it to the hat and added some ribbon around the edge


masha`allah it looks so cute and now i have my neighbour asking if i will make one for her daughter
