Lil' Cowboy

Pattern: Child's Cowboy Hat. Very easy, quick and fun.

Yarn: Samos Novita, colorway 300, 50% cotton and 50% acryl, kindly donated by my Secret Pal. I like it a lot -- it is very soft, slightly flexible, not splitty at all. I wish we had it in our Dutch yarn stores, but apparently it's a typically Finnish yarn brand...

Hook: 5mm, aluminium.

Modification: I added a row of slip stitches to the upper border of the hat, to make the top concave rather than convex (looks more cowboy-ish).

Still want to add: an applique felt star for my little sheriff; a decorative but simple ribbon and another ribbon to tie the hat to my playful boy's head :-)

 

It looks great on the recipient -- who is, at this moment, taking his afternoon nap. Thank you, Secret Pal, and I hope you like the way I used the yarn you sent me :-)

    Oh lordy, thanks for the link - I'm definitely going to make this for mine when she's bigger! It looks fantastic and you're so neat and tidy too. I like the slip stitch detail, you were right to add that. Why don't you crochet the star in gold 'goldfingering' for added authenticity? ;-))

    And great idea for the star.. ;-)
