I made a hat from Hats & Diaper Covers. Ta da!
Which hat? Uh, well, it started out as the Chick pattern but then I started running out of yellow yarn. So I switched to white yarn and hoped that this would look like a chick hatching out of an egg. Then I realized that the baby I was crocheting for is made up of fatness and warmth and needed more warmth like springtime needs more pollen.
So I just used my remaining yellow yarn and mixed it with the white for some adorable braided strings and called it a day.
Sometimes a hat is just a hat. I tend to forget that when I'm crocheting because embellishments are so easy to add and little babies looking like yarny animals just tickle me. But a simple little hat can be cute also. I like the bright yellow with the white border. I like the braids. I just like this hat pattern without eyes or ears or whatever else I typically add on.
So here it is. A very cute and simple hat that's obvious evidence of my Eastery weekend. I was going to add this to the gift pile, but my daughter saw this and wanted to wear it (not pictured because she's a constant blur). Once I tied the braids under her chin, she yelled that she was an egg.
Oh. Maybe this is a themed hat, after all!
