acorn hat

Oooh, I've been saving this one up. Finally revealing it is almost as exciting as giving it to the expectant mother was.

The Vital Statistics
Acorn hat by Jane Davis from Simple Crochet for Cherished Babies.
Size: newborn.
Yarn: Grignasco Bambi, 100% merino, not sure of shade, with yarn held double throughout for the hat and a mystery yarn from stash for the leaves.
Hook: 4mm.
Start to finish: 22 March to 31 March 2010.
Recycle/stash content: all of it from stash!
Comments: Eep, it's a few weeks ago now. This was a gift for a friend who is expecting twins. This was simple to crochet for an effective result, the leaves especially are great. I crocheted a few extra rows on the hat because I found the result from the pattern wasn't deep enough. The hat has a turned-under brim and instead of attaching that to the inside of the hat with a crochet stitch (as the pattern directs) I just slip stitched it into place.
Verdict: Very happy.
