Aries Hat

SONY DSC

This is my niece Aries.  She, along with several of the other children in my life, requested that I make her a hat.  Unfortunately for them, temperatures are already averaging in the 70s here and we even hit 82 the other day.  That has not deterred the kids’ desires for winter accessories, so be prepared to see lots of pictures of kids in shorts and t-shirts wearing beanies and scarves.  Not that I am complaining, mind you.  I have spent plenty of time in places that were covered in snow a good deal of the time and I definitely appreciate the beautiful Arizona “winter.”

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.
