Oh, the frustration of a failed project! I'm working on craft time fumes here, Mr. Jack and Jill Hat! You are a lovely pattern, and I had such success with your "Jack". But your "Jill" is a different story.
I measured Rebecca's head.
I cut my pattern.
I made a hat.
It was too small.
I took Suzanne's sage advice and called on the girls at the shop for help.
I followed the advice and made another hat.
Grrr. Too small again. I realized I had measured wrong...again...( I am even sleeping well, for heaven's sake!)...and so I bestowed the hat on dear friends for their almost-here-baby-girl. Their gratefulness made all of my frustration leave instantly. Now I just feel warm and fuzzy. I can't wait to meet you, little Paige!
Here is the top of Rebecca's head modeling the hat for you :)
