My middle daughter has been patiently waiting for me to make her a hat, and she really wanted one with a butterfly.
I thought about making her this one
It is so cute and it is a fairly easy pattern> However, I got to thinking about how cold the winter wind is here, and so I thought that just maybe I'd better make a hat with no 'holes' in it so she stays warm.
I ended up not using a pattern for the hat itself - but to make the butterfly I followed this pattern which actually says to crochet a flower - and then fold it in half.
I think it turned out pretty cute (but then I'm prejudiced about the model) ;-)
