(my first crocheted project posting!)
NaeNae - my hat is really stretchy. Maybe because I did it with two strands of fine yarn held together - I'm not sure. but I think I could easily fit a fro under there. I hope so, because I am making one for my sister and she has a lot, a lot of hair.
here is the one I made for my mom as one of her christmas presents. It will look cuter on her!
the pattern is great! easy to follow, works up fast. I think this is the first time I didn't modify a pattern, but followed it to the end. Am I the only one that had total angst over the best flower placement? I am not so thrilled with how my flower turned out (I think it was the yarn, or maybe my crochet skills) and I made a few mistakes (maybe skipped/added a stitch here and there) but overall I am really happy with the hat!
p.s. Sykospark - your green looks awesome and I like your idea about the scalloped edging...think I'll copy it for my sister's hat!
