Working on this hat! Come see
I think I have told some of you about my friends mom who has cancer? Well I was going to surprise her awhile back by making her a hat. She came over one day and just for fun I showed her the project I was working on for her but didn't tell her it was for her. She didn't like the colour LOL. So then I told her I would make her something of her choice. So we went over to the yarn store and with the help of the lady at the store we picked out a yarn and colour.
She asked me for a hat that would have a lot of holes in it so that he head could breathe. I found a pattern online, and have been working on it. I have made a ton of mistakes in the pattern and it doesn't look like that hat in the pattern but it still turning out pretty nice! She won't be able to tell the difference.
Here it is so far

Very nice! Made to order too. It sure looks like a winner to me.

It looks great! Even if it doesn't look like the pattern, it looks like a lovely hat and it is certainly a thoughtful gift. Not far to go to the finish either.

It looks awesome!

When asking questions ALWAYS post the name and a link for the pattern if you have it.

That's a wonderful looking hat in a great color (not to mention one of her choice ). Your friend will be very pleased with it, I'm sure!
