Crocheted hats, hats and more hats!

hat_cocoa mocha1I had an obsession with making hats this winter, thanks to a gorgeous pattern I discovered at the awesome Cre8tion Crochet site. The link below will take you to the pattern:

hat_pastel mint cream & peach1It’s called the Grayscale Ombre Slouch, and I so loved working on the pattern, I decided to make it in a variety of different colours. The colour combinations you can use are endless, and the hat is easy enough to whip up in an evening.
The pattern at Cre8tion Crochet offers instructions for toddler, child and adult. The ones I made are all adult sized.

I also made an infinity scarf to match one of my hats (pictured), and the pattern is below if you’d like to make one.

    An older relative of mine who is now long gone used to knit hats all the time and give them away. I never wore them, but I have them safely tucked away in an old trunk beneath the bed. Seeing them reminds me of her, and now I would never discard the hats–or wear them!

      A little piece of our spirit is in everything we make. It’s nice of you to keep them. If you were handy with a needle and thread, you could probably refashion them into little sweaters for the cats! Wouldn’t they love that?! hahaha!
