Almost Craft Fail into a Happy Accident Called A "Hatsket"

Crochet Basket 2

I was pretty sure I had a total craft fail on my hands. I decided I would try my hand at crocheting a hat. I have lots of leftover yarn and there’s an organization that collects hats but that’s another post.

Clearly what’s pictured above is not a hat! But, just when I was about to rip the whole thing out AGAIN, I decided to turn my craft fail into a happy accident and my was gonna be a hat, became a basket.

Mr. Chocolate even had a use for it in mind as soon as I finished it. I keep my doodle book by my chair in our family room, along with pens, an extra asthma inhaler, earbuds for watching craft videos ( on how to make hats!) etc. but they have a tendency to just be scattered on the side table. Not any more!

Since this wasn’t planned, I didn’t take pics along the way but it is basically a half double crochet stitch all around with a major mis-fire at what was supposed to be the crown of the hat.

Um, yeah. But I'm not telling! I am afraid of crocheting, barely learned to knit as a girl. Kudos, my hat's off to you lol.
