Welcome to the June Pinterest Challenge! The purpose of this Pinterest Challenge is to motivate us to not just pin, but to make it happen!
This month’s challenge is Summer.
I made this adorable little hat, and began this draft back in September of 2014. Yikes! Up until recently, it only needed the ends to be weaved in, and photos to be taken (which was tough for me with the hat being so soft.)
Let’s go back to 2014:
While I was looking at the 0-3 Month Pixie Shell Bonnet, I found this Rad Rayon Infant Donegal at the end. I had some Green I Love This Yarn Sport Weight that’s been sitting around since this past Spring (from a tank top that didn’t pan out), so I decided to pull it out and try it on this golf hat.
I also looked into the Rad Rayon yarn that Lorene used (which has been discontinued). Being machine washable and dryable is great and it’s lightweight being made of rayon. The Darn Good Yarn company supports a great cause – helping women of Nepal and India become autonomous and self-reliant. I have enjoyed working with them in the past on my crochet pattern review of their Ripples Neckware, and the Darn Good Catchall Baskets I designed for them.
Materials I Used:
- Less than half a skein of I Love This Sportweight Yarn in Green
- I9/5.5mm Crochet Hook
- Tapestry Needle
I was able to work up this hat in just about an hour.
I didn’t make any adjustments to this pattern – it was written great! Easy to follow, and the hat is quick to work up.
I am curious how it holds it’s shape when worn by a baby, though in reality, it’s probably better suited to use as a photo prop, especially for golf lovers and Father’s Day.
