UPDATE: 01/15/15: This item is SOLD. Thank you!
I finally found the time to make something from my Diaper Covers & Caps crochet pattern book I got a couple of months ago.
I didn’t want to make a full set until I tried out at least one of the items to see how it came out size-wise. I decided to go with the Ruffle Hat. You can see it on the cover above on the left hand side, it is white with a pink flower. I crocheted mine with yellow acrylic yarn and no flower. The patterns were a little difficult to understand. It showed 3 different size but the only thing that varied per size was the crochet hook no stitches were different. I checked my gauge and took off and my hat still came out a little larger. Although I don’t like it when patterns don’t give you a finished size in measurements since there is no way to really check.
Here are some pictures of my daughter, trying on the hat for me:
I used Sport weight yellow yarn and an E hook. The ruffles are very cute! Now that I have a basis of how the patterns are sized, I know that I need to either do tighter stitches or use a smaller hook than stated.
This hat will fit 1 year to 4T. It measures 18.5″ around and 7″ high.
This hat is available for sale on my store, The Steady Hand.
