cute flower (if you scroll down far enough on the linked site, you'll find the pattern for a flower brooch) I could stitch to the outside. On this site, I only used the pattern for the first flower.
|1st Hat-finished with last 2 rows of pattern, 2nd Hat-leftout|
one stitch, 3rd Hat-my second try
So, I'm out of my hankering & I still needed a hat for a 9 year old girl!!!
I figured for my last try, I would try eliminating one of the stitches in the first row of the pattern. The first few rows went smoothly & it wasn't until I reached the 7th row that I had to really think on ways to connect the two ends of each of my rows - to make the diamond ridge shape hold together.
