51  Re: Earflap hat w/ pompoms in Crochet: Completed Projects by BabySkilz on: November 20, 2006 03:26:22 PM
I just make a hat, any style then I attach the yarn wherever I want the flap to start. 
I sc across for how wide I want it then with each row I do a decrease for the first and last stitch until I end up with one stitch at the tip.  (Ex.  Row1 - 10 sc, ch 1, turn, Row2 - sc 2 together, sc in next 6 st, sc 2 together, ch 1, turn, Row3 - sc 2 together, sc in next 4 st, sc 2 together, ch1, turn)  Continue until you end up with one sc in a row.  (It should be row 6 if you start with 10 sc in base row.) 
I then fold the hat in half so I know where to attach the second earflap.  I like to have them closer together in the back instead of perfectly centered on both sides.  You can tell in the first picture what I mean. 
For the pompoms I used 6 strands of yarn and stuck it through the final sc at the points of the flaps.  I braided them and tied a knot at the ends.  Then I attached the pompoms by treading the string up through the knot at the end of the braid, cut the ends close to the knot and hid the rest of the string up through the braid.   
This picture kind of shows what I mean. 

(You can see the knot and how the ends are cut short.  The pompom then hides the ends.) 
When I read all of this it sounds confusing.  Sorry, It's my first time trying to explain how I do something like this.  Let me know if you have any questions.

53  Black shrug thingy (Tried to explain how it was done?!?) and brimmed beanie in Crochet: Completed Projects by BabySkilz on: November 18, 2006 07:19:21 PM
I kept seeing all of these cute shrugs so I thought I would give it a try.

This was my first try at a brimmed beanie.  I've since figured out a better way to make the brim.

54  Cable brimed beanie for baby (w/ link for cables) in Crochet: Completed Projects by BabySkilz on: November 18, 2006 07:14:17 PM
This was my first try at cables.  Is this how they are supposed to look?  I guess I thought that they would be more deffined.  Maybe it's the yarn I used.  (two strands together)  Maybe thinner yarn?  Through looking around on the net, I realized what I did wrong with the cables.  Here is a link I found with how they should look.

56  Hello Kitty Baby Hat in Crochet: Completed Projects by BabySkilz on: November 18, 2006 07:05:12 PM
I found this on line and had to make it.  It turned out cute, but I was kind of disappointed when I saw it on.  I think that ears are a little big and the bow a bit heavy looking. 

I think my daughter is cute enough to pull it off anyways.   Smiley

57  Sock Monkey Hat with Earflaps in Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller by BabySkilz on: November 18, 2006 06:48:13 PM
I made this hat the way the pattern was in the book, but then I thought it would be cute this way.  I'm happy with the way it turned out.

Here is a better picture of the actual sock monkey

58  Just Ducky baby hat in Crochet: Completed Projects by BabySkilz on: November 18, 2006 07:30:03 AM
This is the  first hat I made.  It was for a co-worker's baby shower.  I saw a knit hat on line that I loved so I created this.  It looks very close to the original knit pattern.  I have a hard time finishing projects, but I found that I love baby things because they work up so fast.
