Thank you for all the compliments  Smiley one day I will make another one that is adult size.

It was quite awhile ago that I made it so I had to look at the book again to see how the elastic was covered. I remember I had trouble understanding it too. I think when you follow the instructions you're going through two stitches at a time, and start at the last stitch you just made. . .So you go through st, yo, pull it up(2 loops on hook), yo again(3 loops on hook) and then immediately go to the next stitch(with the yos still on the hook) yo again, you should have 4 loops on the hook, pull up, yo again and pull yarn through all 4 loops, then start the stitch all over again in the last one you just did. . .. .I hope that makes sense lol Good luck with it. . .I didn't know if I did it right at first because it was so bulky, but it turned out.

edited to add that when covering the elastic stitches start at the base and yarn needs to be loose.

Thank you! Smiley

Thanks for the tip on the starch. . .I had thought about using that, but have never used it before. I will give it a try whenever I dig out the hat.

hmm, if I remember correctly, the top was kindof an oval, then there were some decreases and then increases(must have been to make the side grooves), then the brim.

Both so cute! I especially love the gray one and have wanted to make one like that for awhile.
Great job  Smiley

Thanks  Smiley

I'm not sure about a website, but you can search "Get Your Crochet On: Hip Hats and Cool Caps" on google or Amazon, Amazon has "search inside" so you can see pics of the book. The author is Afya Ibomu.

To get the groove on the top I just folded the top in half to get the shape. I have no idea if it will stay that way or not since no one has worn it yet. The hat is pretty floppy. . . so I don't know how to make it stay like that. . .they may have mentioned something about it in the book.

That's so cute, I love the white flower and how it really stands out on the black bag.

So pretty and cute  Smiley

my husband's grandma used to crochet swans and used a sugar solution to stiffen them too.
