Finally!

Posted on: December 9, 2011

I finished this baby Jack Skellington hat for a friend’s baby girl (!!!) that is due in March. I found onesie that matches it too! Oh gosh I’m so excited! This is the first project I’ve started that I’ve finished with the intended results. Actually – take that back. It’s the first project I’ve started that I have actually finished. I feel like maybe I don’t HAVE to have startitis. I just need to focus more.

I used a “D” hook (3.25mm) I saw a pattern for an adult hat like it and altered the number of stitches and obvious size. I also added the ear flaps and braids. The braids are a little long, but I saw hats on Ravelry that had longer braids.  The hat is meant for a 3-6month old baby – according to the hat sizes in the stores.

I used Red Heart Super Saver (Solids) yarn – which isn’t as soft as baby yarn – but since I wasn’t sure how it was going to turn out… Anyhoo! I am so excited to give it to her, and I hope she likes it!

Maybe I should also add that my friend also absolutely positively LOVES Nightmare Before Christmas.

PS: My Mom crocheted the afghan on the bed. It’s super big and soooo warm. I loves it.
