I made a crocodile hat

I used this pattern to make this hat out of the crocodile stitch (which kinda looks like petals here), although I made some alterations to the pattern: I used dk yarn instead of worsted, and I think I paid for that mistake when the hat came out ALMOST too small for me to even put on (and my head is pretty small for an adult).  So next time I’d either use worsted or go up a hook size or two.  I also chained 2 between the set-up stitches almost the whole way, even though the pattern said I should just ch 1 (chaining 1 made it too small — you’ll understand if you try to make it).

So anyway, I will probably be trying this pattern again because it is pretty cute, but I will make some alterations to make it a more comfortable fit for myself.
