It took me 3-4 weeks to make the Afghan and two weeks to make the pillow (after I got the measurements right).

I call it Granny's Garden. LOL! It took about 4 hours to finish.

There are 8 flowers around the hat and the black center of each flower was too plain, so I added a crocheted yellow button.
Do you mind sharing the website that shows how to make this cute beanie? Thanks!!!

Default Hats for Boys or Men


1/26/09 takes approx. 1 1/2 - 2 hours to complete


1/27/09 this hat took 1 hour to complete
it's easier to see the yarn loops one lighter colors, so it works up faster
