Our daughter Jen likes buttons…she collects them.
She lost her black winter hat…so I crocheted her a new one while she was here. The button came from the button jar…not sure where it came from or what piece of clothing it came from. Perhaps it is from an old sweater or winter coat.
Here you can see the yarn and the finished product. The yarn is called coffee beenz it is part wool, part acrylic and very soft. I used a single crochet stitch throughout and a crab stitch to finish off the edge.
Here Jen is modeling her new hat…good thing I finished it as it was a chilly Minnesota morning when she, Andy and the Granddogs headed home.
Our house is very quiet again.
Very nice! Looks so warm.
Nice looking hat. I've always had a button jar around for that just in case moment.
Very attractive... the hat and the daughter.
That's really a great hat...and how cool you could make it while she was there. I love the button too. I have a button jar....I don't know what I'll ever do with them but I just like them. I think my grandmother also collected buttons.
I adore my hats that my Grandmother made and that were passed on to me when Grandma passed away. I have one like this!
I love that hat, and that it was created right there in front of its owner. I'll bet the place seems quiet now with everyone gone. I wonder where that button came from; it's perfect in its new home. :-)
Looks like a perfect fit! She'll need it! 10 degrees and breezy this morning over here. Brrr! So nice they came to visit. :)
What a gift...made on the spot with love...that will be cherished forever.
How amazing to be able to do that! I cannot!!!!
Lovely hat and the button looks very stylish. I have a large jar filled with buttons I've collected - some are from my Mom's collection.
That is a beautiful hat. It looks like it fits her perfectly! What a wonderful thing to do. I have a button tin. Only a few are from me, the rest belonged to my grandma and my mom. I inherited both of their button tins. Sometimes I like just sift through them and remember the different items of clothing that they wore before they snip the buttons off. The buttons were saved and the item of clothing went into the rag bin. Blessings always, Betsy
I'm sure she loved the hat, and was grateful for its warmth.
I've got a bag full of random buttons.
Very well done!!!
That yarn is so pretty and the accent button really sets it off. I have never heard of the crab stitch. I'll have to look that one up. I'm sure she truly loved and appreciated it! Glad they came for a visit with the granddogs.
I've always loved buttons and as a child loved to play with my Grandmother's button box. I love the yarn you used for Jen's hat. You made that hat quickly too! You are a woman of many talents.
Nice hat! I love the wool acrylic blends. Soft, warm, and you can throw them in the washer and dryer.
That is a cozy-looking hat.
Love the look of the hat.
The yarn is fascinating. Of course the hat--and its model--looks great!
Heard about your freezing temperatures in the news. Brrrr. Keep warm!
Cute hat and lucky daughter!
Awesome job on the hat.
I like it that you had a great visit, and also produced a hat, an act of love for a loved one.
The hat goes perfectly with her coat! It looks nice and warm.
My wife’s friend likes to make ear rings out of buttons. She too collects them just for fun.
