Girlie Crocheted Hat

I have been busy crocheting lots of stuff this winter.  I have made a Cowl scarf and I am working on a couple of other scarves!  I also made this really cute hat!


I found this free pattern over at The Dainty Daisy. It is super cute on my 3yr. old!

I love when I can find free, cute patterns that crochet up well!  Thank-you Betsy @ The Dainty Daisy!!


I found the flower pattern here on RavelryIf you do not have a free membership on Ravelry…go and get one!  Especially, if you love to knit or crochet!

If you have not ever tried to knit or crochet…it is SO time to give it a try!  The funny thing is that I started learning to knit first.  But I have found that I really like crocheting much better.  I guess it is just a personal preference.

Here is a little story about my first time knitting.

We have books for sale all the time in our lounge at school.  One day a couple of years ago, there was this book entitled…”Knitting”.

It claimed to teach you to knit 6 great projects!  Oh and it was on sale..only a few dollars!  I ran into the library where several of my K-team were sitting.  I began to tell them that my new book was going to teach me to knit!  They were very skeptical.  Our librarian helped me get it started..and after that I just took off!  Needless to say my K team was amazed that I actually had made the scarf that was in the book!

My motto in life.. if you want to learn how to do something badly enough…



There are always people out there that can lead and guide you in your new learning!  (I have had several guide me!  And I appreciate it!)

While I am on this topic…let me share a my FAVORITE guide to learning to Crochet or Knit.  I still use them to help me learn or re-learn stitches.

I think I picked both of mine up at Hobby Lobby.  I also found them here and here on Amazon.

Let me know if you give either one a try!
