I wanted the baby to wear a crocheted hat in our family pictures that are coming up and I didn't want to buy one. I looked on Etsy, and as adorable as they were, there is just something in me that can't handle paying for something I know I could make myself. I used to know how to crochet, so I decided that I was going to relearn and then learn how to follow a pattern and then buy a pattern and make it happen.
It pretty much went as planned. I was even feeling confident enough in my abilities that I abandoned the pattern I bought towards the end and went for something a little more like this. It worked out pretty well.
