251. “Tony” Baby Hat

Crochet, project 251. Completed 6/10/2010

Tony means “stylish or upscale”. It also is the name of the awards ceremony for “excellence in live theater” that I was watching on TV while crocheting. This hat is crocheted from the top down in continuous spirals. Turning it wrong-side out adds interest to the stitch pattern.
