As with last year’s mitten tree, these hats were strongly influenced by my grandma’s good friend, Tillie, whose copious crafting stash I inherited two years ago.
Two of the hats were actually crocheted who-knows-how-many years ago by Tillie herself–at least, the rectangles that form the main bodies of the hats were. All I did to finish them was add a seam and a pompom, then fold up a cuff.
For another three hats, I did the crocheting myself but used Tillie’s yarn. The first, from a super-soft, fluffy, easy-care variegated yarn, is sized for an older infant.
and this one is large enough for an adult.
for self/family: 1
for charity: 5
Bonus brag! Wouldn’t you know, most of the material for these hats had been tucked into the same storage bag, so I can actually share my first 2015 Messy to Classy photos now, too:
Obviously I haven’t made it to the “classy” finish line yet on that particular storage bag, but I like the progress so far.
