up until recently i never was a big fan of hats. not only because it flattens my hair but because i'd lose the damn thing. not even during the blossom craze did i long to own a hat. i may have worn a baseball cap in college to mask my unwashed hair during exam week. then about a year ago i learned how to crochet in the round and i busted out a few beanies and baby sun hats. they were so easy to make that i could misplace one and just make another! even better: fun frogger hats! a few weeks ago my cousin kim sported the cutest city cap from anthropologie. it was adorable and made of yarn! i decided i wanted one, especially for my trip to NYC.
scouring ravelry for the cap pattern was hard. it took awhile i finally found one that i liked. Celeste Young of Celestial Creations designed the cutest cap. her City Girl Cap pattern was pretty easy to follow. i made a few modifications. my brim isn't as long as hers, i wanted it closer to the anthropologie style and i added a few lines to the body to ensure that my ears were covered. it's still kinda big on me so my next one will either be made with a smaller hook or i'll take out a ring or two. i might add a few buttoms or an extra crocheted band for contrast, or maybe some flowers. the possibilities are endless!
