Thanks for the pattern. I have never really had a serious try at learning crochet before but I have tonnes of yarn to get thru and decided to give this a try.
I used totally the wrong thickness wool though ( double knit rather than chunky) and also the wrong size hook. But hey it was just to practise to see if I could get the hang of crochet.
Anyhow it turned out well. Obviously smaller than it should but hope you don't mind I have modified it to use as a cover for the jar containing my knitting needles, Im gonna crochet some flowers to fancy it up a little.
I reckon done in the size I practised it would be a good way of using odds and ends up to make baby hats. If its ok I will make some for my local hospitals Special Care Baby Unit for premmie babies, will wait for your permission to use pattern first.
