Crochet – Another New Hobby

by Crystal on February 17, 2011

I have found another hobby, as if I need a new one.  One day I was looking around on Etsy.com and saw a crochet hat pattern that was really cute.  I went ahead and purchased it thinking I could make it no problem.  I didn’t have a clue how to crochet, but I didn’t let that stop me.  My mom used to crochet years ago so she showed me a few of the basic stitches.  I practiced those few stitches, when I felt confident enough I started the hat.  When I got stuck I would watch You Tube videos (I Love the internet!) to figure out the problem.  After three days of frustration and taking out the hat at least ten times I finally got it made!  I love the way it turned out.

Since then I have made many different style headbands and a few different hats. My niece is wearing the second hat that I made (I think I only took that out 4 times, lol).  She loves it.  I have had a lot of fun learning this new hobby and enjoy finding new things to make.

So cute and TOTALLY not fair that you can just pick up a pattern and “ta-da” a new hobby – that you are really good at – is born!! Great job! 🙂

SO cute! I’ve seen a lot of things crochet that probably should have been crochet but this is not one of them. It’s ADORABLE!!
And good for you for doing something that you had no idea how to do.

I have been looking everywhere to find a hat pattern like that white one for my cousin’s baby that is due in a few months. Would you mind telling me what kind of stitch that is so I can look up how to do it and make my own pattern? I would really appreciate it. And btw…AMAZING job! You seem to be extremely crafty!

Thank You! It was frustrating to make but worth it in the end! 🙂
The stitches I used are:

Dc-double crochet
FPdc-front post double crochet

I got the pattern from here: http://www.etsy.com/listing/62455977/parmida-hat-crochet-pattern-and-diy… Since that was the second thing I made there was no way I could make up a pattern. I would love to see what you make 🙂
