I am not friends with hats coz everytime I sit to crochet a hat it either turns to be very small or very big. I crocheted couple of hats without following any instructions. It turned out to be better than the ones that I made with written and visual instructions. I got the pattern for this hat from a baby magazine.
One thing I like about hats are they can be made within an hour. The next one is the hat that I made for my daughter..
