A friend's daughter is going to college and wanted a hat. She said "it is the kind that hangs off the back of your head and you aren'tsure how it holds on".

She sent this picture from

She also sent this picture.

In my search for a good beret pattern I found

She has an amazing amount of free crochet lessons. Anyway...her Aug 6th 2010 post is a pattern for this rug.
So I decided to use that pattern and make a beret. This is the final results.
I worked the pattern for 9 rows and then worked basically even for two rows, then decreased for three rows then worked 5 rows of sc with a pattern. I hope it fits the girl. (It fits my daughter OK as seen in pictures.) do you think it will work??

Thanks for looking!

I really apologize for the bad pictures....i need a new camera...I actually wore mine out. I have to use my camera phone, which is 3.0 mp but still not what I want.
There is a sweet lady at the local chinese resteraunt who says I am her favorite customer. She often gives me beautiful ribbon roses she makes. I wanted to make a panda for her and that was how this one got started. I am worried now however that he might be too "weird' of a panda? I like him though..he is very friendly...looks like he would bring good luck..don't you think?
He is made from worsted weight yarn and will be available as a pattern after the pattern is tested.

This bear was made with my humphrey pattern. I changed the size of the hook and the thickness of yarn for the sweater part...and worked to first row of the sweater in back loops to leave a free loop for adding yarn.

Adult hat made from my spring spiral pattern. (baby one can be seen in previous post)
Used fuzzy yarn for the spiral on this one.
Currently deciding between focusing on pattern writing or just start making hats. They have been really popular and I have been told to sell them on etsy...they take about an hour and 1/2 to make and I plan on selling them for 12.50.
Thanks for checking out my blog.
