This one turned out cute! Rae chose the yarn and I chose the pattern.

  • Zigzags Hat – found free on Ravelry
  • Yarn – Paintbox Simply Aran
  • Needle size – #6 for the brim, #8 for the body

I love it when the top of the hat comes out so nicely! Some patterns look better than others.

And just like that with 4 hours working after Keith went to bed, I’ve finished the hat and pieced the last of the blocks for the HeartStrings quilt. I still have 12 blocks to trim and then I’ll be ready to start assembling the top. I also measured the Shell blanket and decided to crochet about 4 more inches before finishing that one up.


  1. It is really cute and a very pretty color, but please Mary tell me:when do you sleep? Greetings from Elisabeth

  2. That is really cute!! If it is for Rae, she will love it!! You must not require much sleep. And there is no way I could even sew a straight line after 9 pm.
