I decided to celebrate finishing my gifts before Christmas by stitching for myself the day after.
This pattern is also part of my Big Project. It comes from the August/September 2006 issue of Crochet Today.
I decided to use a fun multi-textured yarn from Red Heart called Boutique Magical in Wizard, and some purple Caron Simply Soft for contrast.
The first hat did not turn out the way I imagined it. I don’t know where all the red yarn came from, but it wasn’t part of my vision.
I gave that one to my daughter who looks good in all hats and tried again. This time I used the outside of the skein and the results were more what I was looking for. I also made it a bit bigger.

The two hats together used the entire skein.
Just for fun I am also going to share the Christmas Tree Skirt I completed last year.
