The inspiration came from a hat Repeat Crafter Me blogged about years and years ago, and I was asked to make some, but the difference between a baby hat, and a hat for a bottle is HUGE.
Maths at the ready, and some white (And then black – who on earth chooses to crochet in black yarn?) and grey wool, and my favourite stitch at the moment Bobble stitch in a hat.
