Daughter’s birthday gift

This slideshow requires JavaScript.


I crocheted a hat my daughter asked me to crochet for her birthday.  She went with me to pick out the colors she wanted it to be. She said she wanted it bright.  I picked up yarn I thought was bright. She kept saying to me it was not bright enough. I finally stepped back and let her pick what she wanted.  We ended up with Caron Simply Soft as they have the brighter yarns.  We also had to go to 2 different stores in to different cities to get the yarn. 

One thing I like about it is now I have yarn to crochet more hats or even a shrug to go with the hat.  I have a few months to decide as it is only June and Christmas is half a year away.

Sky caps also known as the Santa Hat by Marion Davis

These are not first ski cap I crocheted.  I have crocheted many of these over the years and everyone that I crochet is one more that gets me an order for another one.  The ones I have post pictures of were all crocheted during the period from December 2011 to January 2012. Many while I road the bus shopping for other items. I crochet them in as many colors as people would like.  I do not just crochet them in red and white.  I have used black and brown, navy and white, pink, pink and purple, navy and white, orange and royal blue, black and white, berry and holly & ivy and pine, as well as multi-color and gray.  The possibilities are endless as the color of yarn combinations.

But it is the first one that I crocheted using post stitches as the brim trim. I gave this one to a friend as a gift last winter. I then had to crochet one for all of the many children at her house.  Each one posted here was crocheted because of this one hat I crocheted to give to my friend.  Crochet one and everyone wants one but in their choice of colors. Here below are the others I crochet just because I crocheted this one cap.

The pink and purple one was one of the caps I crocheted as another gift.  This time for a winter birthday.

Below is Isaiah ski cap.  This one was crocheted just for Isaiah using a multi-color and gray color also I used some scrap yarns.  The reasoning behind this is Isaiah is “all boy” and likes bright colors.  I wanted a hat that when he lost it as school or left on a bus it would be easily spotted.  

Ski cap in black and orange was crocheted because my son’s friend wore her’s to school and wanted one in a school color.

Each ski cap was made to order so each wearer now has the color cap that he or she wants to wear.  I asked what the favorite colors were for each person before I crocheted them.  Many were crocheted while I was riding the bus and going to take care of other errands.Each cap was crocheted using yarn I had left over from other crochet projects.  I used yarn that is machine washable and machine dry-able so that it would be easier to take care of it.
