Stash-Buster Challenge - Bunny Hat


When I mentioned my plan for stash-busting for March I mentioned that I would inevitable have some unexpected projects pop up. This would be one of those projects. Although, it wasn't entirely unexpected. Baby girl is 3 months old, so I needed to get some adorable 3 month pictures. In knew I would want to crochet some sort of photo prop, I just didn't know what it would be. With her 3 month birthday being so close to Easter I decided to get into the spirit of things and make her a bunny hat for her pictures.  I've decided to share my pattern with you. As always, I really have no idea what I am doing when it comes to writing down patterns so I hope it makes a little bit of sense when you try it out. If only you could see what was going on in my mind, then I'd know you could understand it for sure.

I used about 1.6 oz (45g) or yarn for this project.

    P.S. I am getting a TON of spam comments too. Been thinking of turning the word verification back on too. Don't blame you a bit!

I'm sorry, but I've turned word verification on again. I hate trying to decipher the words just as much as anyone, but I'm getting way too much spam. I tried doing comment moderation as people suggested but the number or spam comments I had to sift through was ridiculous. I appreciate your comments and didn't want them to get lost among the spam. Hopefully, I can reduce the amount of spam and turn the word verification off soon.
