Avec des fleurs, c'est si joli!

I had this plan to make my daughter a hat and add cute crochet flowers onto it. It's always great to have the vision... implementation takes a while.

I had made her a cute little blue cowl which she actually loves and wears daily.

With the left-over yarn, I wanted to try to knit her a hat... it turned out halfway decent!

The last time I held a crochet hook, I believe was in 8th grade. Needless to say, I immediately referred to YouTube and got a very needed fix.

The result wasn't too bad. Certainly not pro work, but not too bad for a first attempt.

Flowers in Magenta and Orange
As I started to assemble it all, I thought I should maybe ask her. It turns out, she didn't want any flowers on her hat. So that was that! We later discussed that maybe dark blue and bright green flowers would be ok. Have to love the 4 year old and her opinions!

This being said, it was great practice because inside my tiny little head, I had a million projects struggling to come out. The next one was simply beautiful!
