Adian Hat

Adian Hat 3

This is my nephew Adian.  He has been begging me to make him a hat since late last year and, because I finally finished all of my holiday crafting, I could make it for him.  He picked the colors and told me how long to make it.  I like when the kids I am crafting for have a say in the design process, because you get to see a little bit of their personalities and creativity in the finished product.  Not to mention the fact that they have so much fun doing it.

As always, this pattern has not been tested so if you notice any problems with it please let me know either in the comments section or at CrochetBot3000@gmail.com. You can also find me on Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/Crochetbot3000.
