apparently my pattern needs work

this I know its why I have it tested.. by people who can read patterns.
I had one tester remind me of fixing spelling and instructions on how to decrease a stitch.. it is different then skipping a stitch.. when you skip it leaves a hole.
My other kind pattern tester ( friend) said " your pattern is whack."
so I guess it needs more work... now I'm glad for the feed back. now on to fix it where it needs fixed.

pattern writing is harder then people realize!

Ok so I have written patterns. I improvise most of the things I make so they can be hard to reproduce.. but they are never alike.
Tonight I'm working on writing a pattern.. so this way when I need to make something I can look it up.
well it's been a while since I have written one as I go. Of course its taking longer then I remember the hat to take. AND its always harder when you are not a lone.
but thats ok. The upside to crochet is that its easy to take out and redo. my notes are messy but thats why I have a friend or two test it.. and make sure it works after I type it out.

The other thing that I ask my self ( other then where is my damned hook?!) is what is that letter again?
I don't have the neatest handwriting..

the cupcake hat

The cupcake hat in toddler size.
The hat is inspired by a piece of amigurumi I made a few years back.
I came across it and thought it would make a great toddler hat.
So I made a toddler sized hat and embellished it a little on top.
I think the results are adorable :D
here is flat laying on a table;

and standing up like on a kids head..
