That looks great! I tried my hand at knitting too but didn't have the patience for it. Crochet is definitely more fun, once you get the hang of it and understand the patterns.
I remember trying to make this hat when I first printed the pattern... thinking I could get away with the tiniest hook in the world!! In Malaysia, it was difficult to walk into a craft store and find larger size hooks, so I settled for the teeny one I had, and when I was halfway through, I realized then that this hat would look better on one of my sister's dolls cos it sure wouldn't fit me!! LOL!!
I FINALLY ordered a set of larger crochet hooks on Ebay and just got them in the mail today, yay!! Can't wait to start on the pattern again.
