I did something similar for my mom for Christmas last year. It was my first hat, so probably a bad idea to try to change a pattern to use 2 strands, one plain white Red Heart and the eyelash together. It worked fine for the scarf but the hat I had to frog...........it looked like a HUMONGOUS chef's hat!
Finally, after frogging it 3 times, I decided to do just a band of the eyelash. It still didn't turn out right........but remember, I'm a relative newbie, this was a BIG gamble.
I went ahead and gave it to her with the caveat that I'd remake the hat, as you can see it's still a tad large
:flirt:.....oh, I made the bunny too.
The pattern was this free beret pattern from Lion Brand, she prefers berets. All in all, she was happy, but I won't want her to wear the hat
