Crochet, project 209. Completed 12/11/2009
Like the “Boyfriend” hat series (5 knitted so far and counting), I can tell this will be a favorite crocheted cap pattern. Easy to work, looks great on a variety of people, and the pattern was easy to follow. Standard size fits 22-inch head nicely; hat is 6.75″ tall.
