**Update - the tutorial is now up. Check it out here.**
When I asked my sis-in-law what her 9 year old would like for her birthday, she didn't hesitate before answering "a VERY long stocking cap with a yarn ball on the end." After searching online I didn't find any crochet patterns that I liked so I decided to see what I could come up with.
I've crocheted quite a few hats so I had a basic idea of what to do. I just started with a much smaller first round and very gradually increased it. I love how it turned out, and my nephew loved it too. In fact, his older brother has now requested one for his birthday in January.
|I know he isn't smiling, but I promise he likes it. :)|
It ended up being three feet long! It went past his waist. As long as his head doesn't grow too much it should last him for quite a while!
|Indy had to try it on before we gave it to him.|
I'm going to clean up my notes while I make the second one. Then I'll post it as a free tutorial on here. Keep an eye out for it!
