From shamrocks to toadstools

Two hat "prototypes" done and I couldn't be more excited!!
Almost everything I have ever made was one of a kind.
These hats are the first things I've ever wanted to replicate exactly.

Lightweight crocheted pointy elfin hats
with wool medallions and, at least so far, nature icons.
First came the shamrocks and now toadstool/mushrooms
dictated by the golden brown color of the yarn.


The toadstool is of  my own creation. I think the center one is right.
I need to perfect the sizing as I have a small, medium and x-large now.
I've now moved onto a bright red yarn that will have apples.
After that, a creamy off-white and periwinkle blue.
Snowflakes and flowers, perhaps?

Wow! It would take me 6 months to do ONE of those and it would look mighty ridiculous when finished!

Those are some beautiful hats!

I stopped over to welcome you to SITS...it was a pleasure to "meet" you tonight and check out your skills!
