Crocheting Hats/2kcbwday2

2010 was a good year in the improvement of my crocheting skills.  I  opened my Etsy shop in June of 2009.  But I was very ill ,at that time, and didn’t list anything to sell for several months.  In 2010,   I made a few cotton wash cloths and listed those on my Etsy site.  After some thought,  I decided to  focus on making hats to sell on Etsy.     

 I purchased several books on crocheting hats. I spent most of 2010 crocheting hats. I crocheted about 40 small newborn and premie baby caps. (Shown in the picture above). I made about 25 beanies for babies( 6 -9 months) and about 15 adult beanies .  I also made a few berets.  So my crochet skill level improved because I learned to make 3 styles of hats I had not made before. 

I also learned to crochet around in a circle. I didn’t have a lot of experience in making hats in the round.  My crocheted hats prior to 2010 had a back seam. I also crocheted a few scarves, afghans and baby blankets.  I think I crocheted more items in 2010 than I have in any other year.
