The pattern was great, but I ended up with the hat portion way to large so I had to take it in through the rim and it ended up looking like a shower cap... not a super cute one like you can find here:
No, mine is not cute at all, not even as a shower cap. The embarrassing thing is I actually wore it out in PUBLIC for a few hours while traveling a couple of weeks ago. I thought it looked OK the morning we left; it kept me from having to do my hair... but YIKES when I caught a view of myself at the gas station I laughed out loud! My 15 year old daughter got a good laugh as well :)
We got an even harder, belly hurting laugh when my husband tried it on one night and entertained us with the many uses of this one failed crochet hat. He turned it into a great golf cap!
It also became an artist's beret!
Then it was the Green Beret...
Then it turned into the chef hat...
Ah... the hat brought out the French in him
Maybe it is not a fail after all :)
