This is the first time I have ever been able to do a ripple of any kind.
These actually worked up quickly.
The picture doesn't show the hat well. It was called a turban hat. There is three rows of chain stitches that are bundled together. Some have called it a butterfly stitch.
I love this pattern and it worked up in an evening of watching NCIS reruns.
I have all the pattern links on my Pinterest account. http://pinterest.com/tielforrest/crochet-baby/
