Continued from 5/25/16.
After a while we had a lot of granny squares, I made baby blankets for cousin’s baby shower’s and a large blanket for my mom and for each of my kids, and one for the neighbors wedding gift. We still had a lot of granny squares. Now I make the granny squares into baby bonnets. It takes five squares, three around the sides, one for the top and one folded in half attached to the front so that it is over the forehead. Then the strings are added. These baby hats have used up a lot of my granny squares, I’m so happy about that.
Now I am making hats for older people. Most hats are larger on the bottom and get smaller as they go up. I can’t make these. The counting and remembering where I am is too much for me. My sister figured out a simpler way to make a hat. She crochets a square or rectangle depending on how she wants the finished hat to look. Then she brings one side over to the other to make a tube and sew these two sides together. Next close up the top, I like making hats with three points on the top, three is one of Gods numbers, so the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost are there watching over whoever wears the hat. Then last, roll up the bottom of the hat. My hats do look like hats woo hoo. My sister can carry many colors up the side of her hats and make some awesome hats, I am still learning how to carry the other colors up the side.
