Thank you Mother Nature!

11 Apr

A few months ago in this post I promised I’d have Fred’s hat done before winter was over.  The Spring Solstice has come and gone, and the hat wasn’t finished. As I write this on April 10th, we’ve already received a blanket of new snow and 6 to 10 inches are expected tomorrow.  Winter drags on, but the hat is complete!

I used this pattern to create the hat.  Unlike most hats I have crocheted in the round, this was crocheted into one long rectangle.

Happy almost spring!

    It’s a very Fred color (and a nice, warm-looking hat).
