This accordian hat from the book Baby Beanies shows why you need a styrofoam hat head! I was pretty disappointed when it came off the needles…
…but after putting it on hat head … it looks cute! The only problem is that the pattern said the hat would fit a child 2 and older but it’s big so I don’t think it’s going to fit the intended 2 year old. Not a big deal, it won’t go to waste. The color is more true to life in this photo. And see that tiny scrap of yarn? After all the looking and sorting in the yarn closet yesterday, I didn’t even need the second skein!
I love it when my decreases come together nicely! She’s gotten a little beat up through the moves but hat head still does a great job – you can find an inexpensive one at Amazon.
And it just so happens I came across this video this morning … isn’t my little Rae the sweetest?! She couldn’t have been much older than Mo in this video and I have NO idea why the video looks like it’s sideways but it should play in the right orientation.
I think it’s fabulous! I really, really like this one! And that little girl (your granddaughter, right?) is too cute for words!
I love the colour of that yarn – and now you can make a second hat with the other ball!
The hat stand really shows off your work! Rae is so sweet! And her momma is sweet to share!
Really cute hat!! And your granddaughter message was adorable!!
Sweet hat and a precious video of Rae.
