I am in the process of making hats and scarves for Christmas. I was excited to find a new pattern for a cute hat. Unfortunately, my first attempt was made while teaching someone how to crochet, and therefore I was not paying attention to the pattern. I made assumptions which were incorrect, so my hat didn't come out as planned. I'm also pretty sure I'm not giving it to anyone as a present. Why do you ask? Could it really have turned out that badly? Well......I'll let you be the judge:
I showed it to a coworker and her response after she stopped laughing was to add a pompom or tassel to the top. I can't bring myself to do that. Why not? Because all I can think of is that I would be adding a pastie. Although I guess I could make another nipple hat, add tassels to them both, grab a friend and we could be stripper boobs for Halloween. I mean, we could even practice the whole twirling the tassels in opposite directions....isn't that supposed to be a special talent?
Anyway, in case you were wondering, actually wearing the hat doesn't help. Here is my son wearing the famous nipple hat.....heaven help me! At least the others turned out great- of course I went back and re-read the pattern. That helped a lot.
