I made a couple of Christmas gifts today. First up was a Beard Hat. I've seen them all over the place on line, but didn't ever think about making one. But I was seriously devoid of ideas of what to make for my nephew Lucas. Like a lot of people I am short of funds this year for gift giving, so I decided to make presents, but really what do you do for a 13 year old boy??? Then I remembered these hats. So here is my finished product. I made up the hat by trial and error, but the beard pattern came from JJ Crochet at http://www.jjcrochet.com/blog/crochet-beard-hat-free-pattern/
My next project was a super cute headband/ear warmer for my 13 year old niece. I found this free pattern at Sadie's Basket, http://sadiesbasket.blogspot.com/2012/10/cable-stitch-jenna-headband-crochet.html
I couldn't get the links to work, so to visit these pages you'll have to copy and paste. Sorry about that.
