Hat request

My MIL requested a hat for herself and for my FIL. This is the hat that I have started for my MIL. 

The pattern is from a long ago Hooked on Crochet magazine. I hope she likes it. 
I have yarn to make a hat for my FIL. His will be a knit. I have made this same hat for my Hubby and my son.
I also want to make a hat for my mom. I found a crocheted pattern for her hat because she wants a fold-up rim. I will leave off the pom-pom.
I bought this yarn on sale, but I think I may go back for another color. I thought her coat was grey, but it is beige. I can't believe that I forgot the color of her coat. I might use this yarn for myself. I do like the pattern that I chose. Oh well, I can't complain about another trip to the craft store.

I am joining Ginny for Yarn Along. What are you knitting/crocheting? What are you reading? As for my reading, I am still in the midst of The Forgotten Garden, by Kate Morton. I have been so tired at night lately that I haven't gotten any bedtime reading done. I will finish it soon, because I really like it. 

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. While I'm primarily a quilter, I'm slowly but surely adding handwork old (embroidery, crochet/knitting) and new (hand applique and quilting) to the repertoire so I love that you do it all! Seeing all your great hats, I'm reminded that I bought yarn LAST YEAR to make a simple tam to go with a new coat. I guess I really should get to it, maybe for the Yarn Along? (Thanks for introducing me to that BTW!)

  2. Those look like some fun projects, and hats crochet up so quickly. I like them for the nearly instant finish gratification.

  3. Very nice. I made a hat for my husband this year and he uses it all of the time.

  4. you are a sweetheart for creating those hats on demand, I know that it will be much appreciated and two heads will be warm and cozy!!

  5. Love the yarn choices for the hats :)

  6. I love those bobbles! Great choices :D

  7. This looks like such a fun project to make. The pattern stitch looks very interesting, too. I may have to make a crochet hat. I hope you have a lovely weekend, Pat :)


Thanks for your comments! I love to hear from you.
