These snowball ornaments are for my Mom's tree.  Her main Christmas tree only has handmade ornaments on it (aside from the lights, that is), so I think she'll like these!

I started with a fairly basic sphere pattern in white Bernat Soft Boucle.  Then I made up the hats as I went.

Here they are as a group:


This one is my favourite hat.  I meant to make it a totally different shape (I was aiming for "Santa hat"... really), but when it came out all pointy like that, it just seemed to beg for a ruffled edge, so there you go!


This is the last hat I made.  It wasn't exactly what I was aiming for, either, but I like it anyway.  It's a kind of hood, I guess.


I made this hat last night.  It's hard to tell from both the picture AND in person, but I used front post dc stitches to make a bit of a rib.  I didn't like how this one turned out at all, but when I showed it to mr.fantastic, he said it reminded him a bit of a beret, so...


This is the first hat I made, out of some variegated yarn I got in a swap.  It looks a bit like a baseball hat, but with a more wrap-around-y brim:

What perfect ornaments from a crocheting daughter!

The little noses are so tiny!

They all turned out with such personalities!

The hat with the pompom started to fall apart.  It seems I somehow managed to miss working into a stitch, so there was a dc stitch just sort of hanging on by a thread.

I wasn't happy with how I'd attached the hanger, or how the eyes turned out, and a bunch of other things. lol

Bummer! But I guess that's what happens to test projects sometimes?

It was that weird not-attached-dc that cemented its position as "prototype". lol

The one with the hood reminds me of a bonnet, the ruffly edge pointy one reminds me of clowns, the ridged one does indeed look like a beret, and the other cap makes me think of golfing caps.  They've got a lot of personality with all their different hats.  Very cute!
