Anthro-Inspired Hat

 

 

http://idesignadventures.blogspot.com/2011/11/anthro-inspired-hat.html

 

This is my third attempt to post this properly….

 

I made this hat for a baby shower that we recently held at church.  I made three hats, but this was the show-stopper.  I used baby weight yarn.  I made the body white, I used a different flower pattern and made it in lilac, but then I sewed a button in the center of my simple, one-layer flower.  It was a glass button that shimmered with green, pink and blue tones.  I wish I was smart enough to take a picture of the hats I made.  I told you, I’m new at this!

 

The crocheter’s blog site is pasted next to the picture.  She saw this hat in an Anthropologie store and said it retailed around $50!  Since I stopped shopping at malls after the birth of my first child – I had four more after him – I buy my yarn at Wal-Mart and try to make snazzy things that look expensive!

 

I hope you try it.  It’s beautiful when done.
