This pattern is by April Draven, the only modification I made was I excluded the initial chain stitch that starts off the hat and did somewhat of a single crochet w/o the chain stitch deal.... And I added pom poms :D
Gonna make the UW scarf next :D This is for the upcoming Apple Cup game that will take place in Pullman, WA this year. It's gonna be REAL COLD here.... so I better dress warm!!!
I made a hat! My boyfriend picked this pattern.. I adapted it from Jessica Suzanne, but also she had mention at the bottom of her blog that she got this from Dot Matthews, so all credit goes to Dot. I used a K hook as suggested by Jessica, and Vanna's Choice yarn. I had to make 2 additional increases after row 5 (so 84 stitches total) for it to have a droopy effect. I also added 1 additional row after you start making each decrease. Just as the previous post had, I included a 4 leaf clover on my hat as well :)
I MADE A HAT!!!! I actually was inspired by Kelley Poteat, and I tried to follow her pattern but I just couldn't! I was having problems like two other people were in the messages, where I was starting off with a strange pointy hat. So after reading several patterns and then hers, I started this off myself. The style is much like Kelley's, except the pattern is different. Same style, different pattern. The lower part I did alternating FPdc and BPdc in every stitch, though by the time I reached this point, I actually didn't know Kelley had done the same thing except hers were alternating 2 FPdc and 2 BPdc. I had just winged it from the beginning til the end when I had my boyfriend try it on. I also added a small four leaf clover on the hat, because it's this thing my boyfriend and I have :) The tiny clover is all thanks to Pam Gillete. It is absolutely adorable! Anyways!! This is probably the first and only thing I've ever down w/o actually reading a pattern! But all thanks to Kelley's hat I was able to do it!
I feel like I keep having to make modifications to these hat patterns... they always seem to not fit or look right after I finish them. i'm working on my own hat for myself too from another pattern, and I already had to make 2 more rows of increases just to make it look right (I hope). so we'll see, those will be posted soon!
