A photographer friend asked me to make her an owl baby hat. So we looked around and found a pattern for something close to what she wanted. She did not want sleepy eyes, so I winged it on the open eyes.
Visually, its super cute. But I think the hat may be a bit too tall? Or I just need a real 0-6m baby to test it on. Not sure about the two-tone look. And the cheap bulky yarn I picked up at Walmart today for my test run crocheted up a bit stiff. I think I will take the hat to the local yarn store and ask them to help me pick a natural fiber yarn that will crochet up soft and fluffy, since I kinda have Teh Yarn Dumb.
Now to see if the friend who commissioned the work likes it.
