So I got the book in the first picture for Christmas, and in it was a very simple hat pattern. Seriously, this is so simple I was forehead-smacking myself for hours after seeing it. So I plan on making a full-sized version for my boyfriend, but first I wanted to be sure I could make it.

I made her one to perhaps keep her ears warm in the snow--though of course she'd never keep it on her head. So I added some straps--just single-chains of finger crochet, since I couldn't find a hook.


One day my dog will rise up and kill me in my sleep.

I've been using that same book to teach myself how to crochet for the past day or so!  (However, I didn't much like any of the crochet hat patterns...)
It looks like you did an excellent job! Smiley

Adorable dog in an adorable hat!  I have that book and have found it indispensable for reteaching myself to embroider.

I too have that book. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it when I have problems with knitting, between that and Stitch n Bitch I never have to look anywhere else.  Doesn't mean I don't own a ton of other books.........
I do agree that a lot of the patterns are outdated though.  They have new versions, I wonder if they updated the patterns?
