I think I caught the crochet bug this week because I have been working on a lot of new patterns as well as using yarn for some other crafty projects (soon to be posted!). And don't forget about my crocheted Valenine's Hat GIVEAWAY!
I've been dying to to make a brimmed hat for awhile now, and finally came across a great pattern from Vallieskids blog. She actually has two different patterns for brimmed hats. One for babies and one for children and luckily both fit my boys! Although I prefer the one for babies because it uses a Half Double Crochet (HDC) rather than a Double Crochet (DC), making it a tighter, thicker hat. Here is the link to the Brimmed Hat for Baby and for the Brimmed Hat for Kids.
I used Organic Elements 1" wood buttons and Vanna's Choice Gray Marble yarn on both hats.
My friend and photographer Shannon of Shannon Erickson Photography took these cute photos of my boys wearing their brimmed hats.
