A Katherine Hat for Lil’ Miss

on September 21, 2013

The weather here is FINALLY starting to cool down.  It’s nice when the summer heat dissipates and you finally feel like you can breathe a little bit.  Things are getting busier on the crochet front now that “Crochet Season” is upon us but it’s nice that I’m getting more orders for wearables now and not just amis.

Speaking of wearables, I recently had the chance to work with Salena Baca- the creative mind behind Design Wars and Baca Creations.  Not only is she a super sweet, real person, her designs are beautiful and SO wearable.

I got my hands on a copy of her Katherine hat and decided to make one for my daughter (who is always thrilled when mommy makes something for her).  We just picked up a new winter coat for lil’ miss so I wanted to make a hat that would easily go with it.

In the pattern, she offers instructions to give you hat a square or a round top so I opted for the square top and added pom poms (side note- the Clover pompom makers are quite possibly the best invention ever).

The pattern worked up quickly- like a dream.  We had a little photo session in the back yard so I could show it off properly!

I love this picture with the hat half-cocked :)

I was so happy to be able to do this and get to now Salena a little bit better.  Do check out the rest of her work, visit her on Facebook, on Ravelry or on Etsy– just do it!  You’ll be happy you did!
