I’ve been so caught up with the kids’ animal beanies that I completely forgot about the hats for women I’m supposed to be making. 50 of them. FIFTY!!! What was I thinking???
I do at least have a great pattern. And it was free from Red Heart. And I can now make it in my sleep. Here it is: newsboy pattern in case you ever want to have a bash.

I made this version with 2 strands of Vinni’s Nikkim cotton in Plum and a 5mm hook:

And this version in a mystery acrylic with a 5.5mm hook:

I should have left the modelling to Alex, hahaha!!!

      Well, we have the opposite here, it’s getter hotter rapidly, and it’s still spring. I think we are in for a STINKER of a summer, the thought of which makes me weak. I much prefer the milder weather :-)

    Brilliant, I think I will add this one to my repertoire Jill! You don’t half set yourself some mountainous tasks do you?! !00 here, 50 there! Flying hooks Batman!!!

      um…..not long. I’ve done a time trial with slippers and with the animal beanies, but not with one of these. So. You know what I’ll be doing this evening on my couch…watch this space.

    You are both gorgeous and photogenic, you look younger than me! Love the hat, I think I will try it out.

      ok, but time yourself – I’m making one now and it’ll be interesting to compare. It’s taken me 50 minutes to do the first 10 rows…. ;-) And thanks for the compliment, but it’s totally unwarranted!!!
