Now, probably due to my lack of gauge checking problem, according to the pattern, my hat should've been finished where you see in the photo that the red color ends. But, the nice thing about it is you can just keep going and going until you feel like you've got the hat to the point you want it. The pattern teaches you how to add those cute little picots on the edge too. However, you can leave those off if you want as well. Here is a picture of another hat I did with this pattern where I left off the picots and the flower:
I gotta tell you, this scarf is the whole entire reason I wanted to learn to crochet. I saw it on Pinterest about a year ago. These are actually for sale in an Etsy listing and I absolutely adored it. So, if you want to buy one that is probably much better than I can make, check out that listing. However, the pattern that I used mine is available for free on Ravelry, and you can find it here. This was such a cool pattern, and not nearly as hard as I thought it would be. I had no problems with it, and I think mine turned out pretty nice for a beginner!
here. This pattern is very very VERY easy, works up really quick, and of course, is free! I'd love for you to share pictures of yours!!
