Crochet beanie with ear flaps

By PaisleyJade - Friday, April 09, 2010

While on our amazing few days away I attempted crocheting a new style of beanie.  I had great intentions but it all seemed to turn to custard.

What do you do when something you makes totally flops?  Try to fix it up as best as you can and give it to one of your kids (the poor things have all of my softie flops etc).

Miss 3 is in love with her new hat and I picked up enough courage to try making the hat again (with a few of my own stitches added here and there) and was really happy with the outcome (which is now in the shop here)!!

Have a great weekend everyone... and please pray my husband doesn't get another pet for our current zoo (see his side of the story here)!!!
