In an effort to maintain my reputation as Jack of All Trades, I like to throw in an unusual “project” every once in a while.
As it turns out, my wife is a huge fan of the Twilight series. She has read all the books, seen all the movies, etc. I came across this pattern for a hat from Jess’s friend Kelly. Apparantly, it is based on a hat worn by the main character of the movies, I think her name is Bella, or something like that.
This is not the greatest picture taken from my iPhone but you can see I have it well under way here.
Here is the final product. It took me about an hour and a half. As it turns out, crocheting is significantly faster than knitting. I actually kind of like the design and even the color Jess picked out.
And there it is. I know, I had trouble taking my eyes off my beautiful wife to look at the hat too, but it’s there.
When Abigail saw her Mama’s new hat she insisted on one for her Madeline doll. As it happens, I had extra yarn so I used a thinner needle and modified the pattern a little and half an hour later, there you go.
