Eleanor's Ridiculously Pointed Winter Hat!

 I decided to make my daughter a completely ridiculous looking hat.  I didn't use a pattern for this or write down what I was doing, but if you can crochet in the round you can make this!  I just started at the top and kept slowly increasing each row until it fit my daughter's head.  I did add a few rows of seed-stitching for a textured element and then added ear flaps to make it more functional.  I topped it off with tassels on the top point.  Very elf-like I guess!  My daughter really loves it.  It is mostly done in single crochet and was made with a size J hook (my favorite size).  It actually fits my head pretty well too but I wasn't about to post of picture of me in this hat because my husband almost fell off the couch laughing at me when I put it on!!!

If you like to crochet and would like a huge collection of free crochet patterns, check out this directory at Crochet Pattern Central.  I adore this website and use it all the time.  Sometimes just seeing the images gives me ideas for my own creations, like ridiculously pointed snow hats.


  1. Bethany, your creations ALWAYS make me smile!!! :) Great job! So....I have zero idea how to crochet so I don't know if this is possible, but looking at what you just made, I'm assuming if anyone can do it, you can. Jayce was asking me to make him a viking helmet, like Hiccup in How To Train Your Dragon....could you do that?!?! If so, name your price! :)

  2. AWESOME! Tell her Grammie and Granddad love it!

  6. They have no incentive to "make sure you don't get paid well". They do have incentive to keep turnover low and to keep salaries in line with market prices and in balance across the company. If your company is like most places I've worked, your manager has some discretion to give you a raise up to a certain amount, and there are extra approvals needed if he wants to go beyond that.
