Fess up! You thought I was going to show you how to crochet a big, burly guy, right? But, no. It’s the hat that we’ll call Spike.
I know it’s hard to get past the adorable toddler, but – really – do look at his cute cap. Reminds me of a Stegosaurus, a favorite of my boys when they were in that dinosaur-loving age group. This designer has taken a simple cap pattern and made it her own by adding the spikes for which she gives us her pattern. What little boy (or tomboy) wouldn’t like this?
I especially like that the cap covers those teeny ears. Here’s what the cap actually looks like once we get past oohing and aaahing over the cute toddler:
Here’s where you can get the free pattern for the spikes. Enjoy making those. Would love to see some in pink!
