This hat crocheted up really quickly because of the holes in it. It took me two evenings.
When I was working on it Calum asked me what I was making. I told him it was a hat. His reply was, 'but it's full of holes!'
Yes, dear, thank you, but the holes are part of the pattern.
I also learned a new stitch, a front post double crochet and a back post double crochet. These give the kind of rib round the brim of that hat that you can see better in the darker picture.
Now I can get started on the baby blankets I mentioned in yesterday's post!
