Urban Shells Beanie

         Wow, February already?!  I have noticed that once you're older, time just flies by!  I'm not sure that I like that lol.  I have been crocheting like a boss lately, I am so happy to have had some extra time to be crafty.  Lots of hats, cowls, and I'm still working on a ripple afghan.  I think that next time I feel brave enough to accept the daunting task of making an afghan I will make one made up of squares instead!  I just get too bored on such a big project! 
         Today I would like to share with you my new hat.  I received a beautiful new coat from my wonderful hubby for Christmas, and of course had to make some matching accessories!  I have had it finished for some time now, but am just getting around to sharing it today.  I found the pattern for free on Ravelry, so I hope everyone will check it out and make one for yourself or as a gift. 
The pattern is available in many sizes from baby to adult.  Here is a pic of me wearing my new hat. 
          I love the scalloped edge, so pretty! You need to be comfortable with fpdc, if you aren't familiar with this stitch, look it up online, there are great tutorials out there! The FREE pattern can be found as a Ravelry download here, Urban Shells Beanie . Unfortunately the link directly to the designer's blog isn't working right now.  I will check it out later this week and post it if it becomes active.  So please go to Ravelry and check out this pattern, there is even a matching scarf! 

Thanks for looking and Happy Hooking!
