Study or crochet. That is the question.


Today supposed to be a study day. I have an exam from biology coming very very soon.

So I made a cup of coffee this afternoon but instead of grabbing a study book for some reason I grabbed a hook and scrap of yarn from down bottom of my yarn box. I was thinking something warm for my little one and this hat pattern just appeared under my fingers. I had to write it down quickly not to forget it so I can share this new pattern with you.

Have fun with this little project.
