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.

ENTER THE PUPPY!
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.



ACTION SHOT!

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

There's not much in this world that can't be improved by either chocolate, bacon or glitter.

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I do agree that a lot of the patterns are outdated though.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?
