Well, I finally finished the hat for my daughter. You can read about it here and here. I found the pattern on Ravelry and fell in love with it. Everything went great until I got to the band of the hat. While the hat is done in crochet, the band was knitted with a circular needle. I just could not get it. Frustrated, I put it away. I had to figure out a way to crochet the band. Well, after looking at many crocheted hat patterns I decided to do a single crochet in the back loop only. I think it turned out well. And, my daughter loves it.
