Jackalackackie Hat FREE Crochet Pattern V.2 Release and Gallery

So many years ago, I designed this hat. I didn’t have a winter hat at the time and thought this would be awesome. It was totally awesome, aside from my lack of experience writing and designing crochet patterns. The hat was always a little snug, and I’m pretty sure the yardage wasn’t figured out correctly. We were holding 2 different yarns together as one (which I’m a huge fan of), but it seemed like the hat was harder than it had to be in those areas.

There Was Working On The Weekend, And It Was Sucking My Life Force Dry

Weekends are a really important for resting. Working through the weekends wasn’t resting. Never taking a day “off” until I absolutely had to… wasn’t resting. Always feeling behind because there was no resting… isn’t resting. I have kids that need me to taxi them everywhere. We have Mondays off of extra curricular activities. Trying to work through all of that without a break makes for stress and incomplete work. Taking a break is a good thing.
