I've decided to make both of my kids a hat for a Christmas stocking stuffer. My daughter asked for a pink one and I decided to "girly" it up with a bit of bling thinking that funfur would make a fun trim to the hat.

Their hats will be based on the same pattern as my first one that I posted. http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=319706.0

My question is... can I use the funfur this way? Will it be able to deal with the stretchiness of the hat? I would like to use a simple single stitch trim instead of the spike that I tried with my first one.

Any tips before I lose my mind with this? lol

when trimming with fun fur i always put one or two chains between each single crochet for that extra bit of fluff.

if you did the same then it wouldn't be any problem when the hat stretches to go on your head.

Just because someone doesn't love you the way you want them to,
doesn't mean they don't love you with all they have.
