My model was NOT cooperating. I guess that's what you get when you pay em in pretzel sticks. He was running away from me; therefore, you get a picture of whereever we ended up that I could take a picture...like my horrendously messy family room. Hmm, I may have to rethink pretzel sticks as payment.
I think I'm happy with how it turned out though (the hat, not the picture, or my housekeeping skills). I will say, however, that I really miss Chase's cute long hair that got cut a few weeks ago. That was a sad, sad day.
If you crochet and want to know how to make this hat, sadly I do not have enough skill to create my own projects, so I bought this pattern. You can too at this Etsy site:
beginner crochet pattern, no. 85, Classic European Newsboy Hat
And I have another little boy one to show you later too! (For the new boy, of course!)
P.S. Thanks everybody for the sweet comments about my little guy! Thanks for your patience in my sporadic/nonexistent posts!!
