My first Crochet Commission - via my Blog

Anyone reading the comments from my last post will understand my skills are finally in demand.  I was approached to make a hat.  Ok I will 'fess up' now, it was my Dad nagging me to make him a hat.  He asked for it, so I got straight to work with the hook!   This morning I presented him with this rather fetching fruitbowl, I mean hat.

As you can clearly see he was as thrilled to be presented with his hat as he was to be photographed first thing in the morning.  I offered to make my Mom a matching one with a flower embellishment but she just rolled her eyes, so I took that as a 'No'.  I thought the crochet 'his n her' look may catch on!  I have a feeling she will be offering my Dad a bribe or an ultimatum not to wear 'that' hat when he is with her or it is daylight!  If you too want to delight your loved ones, I have provided pattern links!

Here is the Ravelry link to the pattern

Here is the pattern on Crafty Christina's Blog

Get your orders in soon as I am expecting to be swamped by the demand for this fetching headwear.  Demand appears to be particularly high in the sweltering Spring/Summer months!


  1. Love it!!! He really needed that hat and he looks very happy with it :o)
    No pressure there then?!

  2. Lucy, you're so funny!! I love the hat and it's so nice to make something for a loved one. I'm sure Dad will treasure it forever. Hugs from Oregon.. Teresa

  3. Thanks dotter. Why oh why don't I listen to you when you say "be careful what you wish for, you just might get it"!
    Hey Teresa, you're so right I'll treasure it for ever and I can assure you it will never wear out.
    By the way all, bookings can be taken for modelling commissions via my agent who also does my crochet for me.

  4. What great photos, your Dad looks brilliant in his fab hat. I hope he won't be insulted if I say he reminds me of Skegness's Jolly Fisherman
