Hi everyone!
I designed this hat to send to sarahfroggy for a trade she and I are doing.  I thought you all might like to see it, and I wrote the pattern out in case anyone wants to make one.  Also (I'm not sure if this is inappropriate to mention, but I'll take it out if it's against the rules), if anyone wants one but you don't want to make it yourself, I have them for sale on my site in the fashion section.  Hope that's not too blatant a plug.   Cheesy






Here's the pattern:

I'd love to hear feedback about the design and pattern.  Whatever helpful hints you might have would be great.  I'm hoping to learn to do more crochet designing and pattern writing and want to make sure I'm using good habits early on.  Thanks everyone!  Hope you like the pattern!

Thanks everyone!  Sarahfroggy, I know what you mean, I'm super excited about my fabric!  *squeal of excitement*

Jessie pointed out to me that not everyone knows the standard crochet abbreviations, so I thought I should post a key of the abbreviations I've used.  If anyone finds any mistakes, please let me know, this is my first try at designing.

sl st = Slip Stitch
sc = Single Crochet
dc = Double Crochet
ch = Chain
hdc = Half Double Crochet

My advice to anyone trying to learn abbreviations is to write out the instructions all the way, replacing the words for the abbreviations.  I would have done that with this pattern, but I figured I'd try my hand at writing a pattern the way it would have to be written for submission to a magazine.

Great instructions for working these stitches and a ton more can be found at http://www.stitchguide.com.  They have videos, yay!

Oh my gosh, I have been scouring the internet looking for a cute pattern for one of those!  You are a saint, and that hat is absolutely adorable.

Wow, I'm a saint!   Grin
I'm glad that you like it.  If you're planning to make one, could you post a picture?  I'd like to see if my pattern writing is up to par.  No biggie if you can't.  Thanks!

I'd be happy to post a pic.  I'm a slow crocheter, though, so it might be a while.
