A hat for Molly-o

My sister Becki requested that I make this hat for her daughter Molly. Molly likes pink and brown, so here's what I made (modeled by Chickie!):

What's cool about this hat is just how simple the pattern is.

I'd never made pom poms, so I found two tutorials (here and here). They were very easy.

If I keep going at this pace, there will be a lot of crocheted items under Christmas trees in a few more months!

Super cute!!

My mom has some crocheted hot pads that come out every meal- I like them better than heavy wooden or metal ones!

Cute cute! I'm working on an afghan for WC. I love to crochet at night while I watch TV, it gets me so relaxed!

SO cute! Personally, for those of us "uncrafty" moms, I think you should do a giveaway!

That is an absolutely darling hat made even cuter with Chickie as the model! I may have to learn to knit/crochet so that I can make those for my granddaughters. :)
