I have a huge cache of antique buttons which I want to use on my crochet work. I wanted a simple hat pattern that would enhance the look of the various buttons I have. I was thrilled when I ran across this pattern! It worked up very quickly, and your pattern instructions were very easy to follow. I am now working on the third one since last evening! I have made the hat in navy for a man, embellishing with antique military buttons, one in a gorgeous coral color with one large crystal button, and the third one I made smaller (just stopped increasing at 40 stitches, using a size G hook), in pink with antique crystal dog buttons. I am now attempting to get pictures uploaded in order to share them with you. Thank You so much for taking the time to post this pattern!
