I have finally joined the BOW revolution

Please don't ask me why I am always 3 years behind trends.  And also ignore my dorky-ness.  This is precisely why I don't post pictures of myself very often, much less do self-portraits!  Ugh.  But I will suffer for in the name of craftyness.  lol.  ;).  Meet my bow hat.




My manikin makes a much better model with her graceful neck and perfect posture.  Unfortunately, her abnormally small head doesn't really show how the hat fits on a normal head...or maybe my head is abnormally big...  Whatever.





Wanna know how to make it?  You basically make a hat like the pattern here - but use two strands instead of one.  And make a bow like the tutorial here but use two strands and make it much bigger by doing a treble stitch and starting with about 17 or 18 chains.  Let me know if you need more instruction and I will do a whole tutorial for ya.
