Made this for my wee niece who can wear all the wild colors I can't.  Has a matching scarf too, but I didn't get a picture of it...


Acrylic yarn; no pattern; knit band because I do not know how to make crochet stretchy.

... Is it felted?

Nope! That is just the hyper-fuzzy nature of the yarn.  It's part of the reason I didn't use a pattern too -- I simply could not SEE the stiches well enough to track them...

Me too.  I had my hand in a brace for all but the last week of December, so I had to mail it too her after the holidays.  I'm hoping my brother will email a photo of her with it on -- my niece says it fits! She called me especially and everything.  Wink

Well, I made it up as I went along but based it on other things, and I've never been into reading crochet patterns, so this may not make any sense at all -- but here it goes!

1) Began with the basic norm of crocheting a disk by alternating a lone half-double stitch in one chain, with 2 half-doubles in the next chain.
    Since I was hooking 'blind' -- unable to see the stitches for the fuzz -- I went by touch and sight to keep things undulating in a vaguely even way.

2) When the top was as wide as I wanted, I flipped the disk over, placed a marker, and stitched directly into the underside with an immediate reduction of stitches...Does that make sense? I then continued to reduce stitches each round until I had an opening roughly the size of my neice's head.

3) When I was ready for the band, I switched to circular knitting needles; picking up stitches from the crochet edge, and working in stockinet until I had double the bandwidth I needed.

4) I then bound off, folded the band over, and stitched it semi-loosley into place with more of the same yarn.

 Huh
        maybe, a little, vaguely coherent?

Cheers!  Smiley
