Little Sister Hat from Petite Purls

I've been working on my crochet during all my free time lately. And when I say all... I mean ALL. Which means I have some Christmas gifts that are still NOT wrapped. I have friends who still don't have Christmas gifts (I won't say who). And after decorating my tree... I stopped there. I NEED to finish decorating for Christmas soon.

I've been downloading a lot of crochet patterns last week, and so far, this must be the prettiest hat I've seen:

Little Sister Hat from Petite Purls
Pretty huh? And the pattern is available for free! I decided to try and make one for my daughter using cotton crochet thread to make it lightweight and useable in our climate.

I made the hat smaller so it won't cover her ears. And I was feeling a little lazy after finishing the hat so I didn't make a new flower for it. I simply used an old flower clip I made a while ago.

And what do you know...

She smiled! It's been a while since I was able to get her to smile and stay still long enough for me to click the camera.

Next project: More hats for some of my friends' kids, and baby booties for my friends who are having babies. I hope I finish everything before Christmas 0_o

Pretty!! And talaga bang uso ang hat ngayon? Before we were thinking it's because of the hype of the royal wedding. But whatever the reasons are, a hat can mark a difference in a person's outfit.

Can't wait to see the hat paired with a nice Christmas outfit for Andrea!

What a cute hat - of course the cute model helps too!! So nice to make a smaller lightweight one so she can still wear it in the heat!

Thanks for linking to a Round Tuit!
Hope you have a great week!
