I tried to take what I learned on my first hat and apply it to making a second.
Unfortunately, I totally forgot about half of the stuff I learned because my brain was clouded with massive amounts of snot, so...
Anyway, The Kid took off with the crochet hook I was supposed to use and after twenty minutes of tearing the house apart looking for it, I just decided to use the one she hadn't taken.
Naturally, that made the pattern all wonky and I kept having to add in stitches here and there to make the hat normal looking (I also think I stitch pretty tight - it's the only way I know how).
Also, I still haven't figured out how to turn the crochet and keep on going. That's why the beak looks funny.
Oh, and if anyone else has a more willing model, please send them over to my house.
