Baby’s Crochet Frog Hat
This tickled me. Apparently Ally has an acquaintance with a young lady who has a baby about Brady’s age. The friend saw his little Puppy Dog Hat that I made last week and asked if they made frog hats.
So what does Ally do? She dials me up and says “I have a hat order for you”. And then proceeds to tell me what colors out of my stash (my girls are always going thru my stash dresser–I think they are hoping to find a drawer full of yarn they haven’t seen before) would work beautifully.
Since I had taken notes when I made Brady’s hat a couple hours later I was looking at a cute little frog hat. I used my basic concept for the doggy eyes for the frog eyes but made them one round larger.
The pattern for this hat was inspired by Lion Brand’s Tweed Hat pattern @ http://www.lionbrand.com/patterns/L0026AD.html?noImages= except with even increases so the top wasn’t so pointy and I had to add a few extra rounds. The yarn used is just Red Heart Super Saver Yarn in ‘Spring Green’ and my size K crochet hook . I have since written my own pattern that is flatter on the top than this hat, is written for worsted weight instead of bulky and uses a 6.5 mm hook instead of an N hook.
