So, the idea for this pattern started with Pinterest. I'll take a moment to vent here....don't you HATE it when you want to pin something, and it goes to flickr instead of the original page? Or you click thinking its DIY and its a shop? Or you click and its in another language? Well, this one was in another language, so I attempted to have Google translate it. I was so bummed to see that it was knitting, because I am not big on knitting, nor am I very good/fast at it. So I decided to simply use it as inspiration to create my own crochet pattern.
(And PLEASE, if you pin something, check first to make sure its from the original source so us bloggers/creators get credit for our hard work!)
So here is the picture- can you blame me for wanting to pin this? What a cutie!!!! (The hat and the baby!) It is from a blog called Pickles.
