WEATHER MAYHEM

Here in south-east England, well may you ask "where is the sun?" the weather is cold, windy and greywith the odd snow flurryYes, it is April and supposedly SPRING, however, there is no sign of it, those blasted north-easterlies are blowing and the jet stream just ain't getting here. boo hoo!

Never mind, I am ignoring what is happening outside and following my inner sunshine and here is the result, a new spring/summer hat, with a lovely little pattern, and a choice of brim lengths. Perfect for your little cutie pie to wear on sunny days.

TERMINOLOGY:  USA and UK crochet terms

I just love crocheting with 4ply for infants and toddlers, it creates a delicate fabric, which I think is just perfect for tiny tots. And you just can't beat Bendigo yarns their cotton is so soft. I love it. They also do an 8ply cotton. Of course you could make these hats with the 8ply, you would just get a larger sized hat, or you could make adjustments and get the right size for your preferred head ircumference. 

Have a go and play a little.
