I have been branching out a little and trying new things (like the Death Star pillow) in order to expand my skills. I am working on a baby blanket that is probably going to take several months, largely because I keep getting distracted and working on other projects. However, my first crochet love is baby hats. Every baby needs a fun hat, and what could be more fun than Nemo?
This pattern came to me from Pinterest, thanks to this blog. I Love This Yarn did not have the right orange color, so I had to try out to this brand:
It feels pretty similar to Red Heart (aka not so soft), but sometimes you just can’t be a snob. I used the “Are We There Yet” orange as well as black and white from I Love This Yarn.
I started by folding the hat in half (as shown above) and attaching the eyes. Then, I attached the tail fin, the dorsal fin, and the top fin. The stripes were not my friends. They did not want to stay where they were put. Finally, I added the side fins, and it was finished!
If you are a beginner, you might wait a few hats before trying this one. Nothing about each piece is difficult but placing the pieces can take a little while. Be patient, and you will have an adorable hat!
