How cute is this little girl in this mesh cap? This mesh crochet cap is made with a soft worsted weight yarn in a mesh pattern. The brim is finished with a soft variegated fun fur yarn. The black and white, polka dot bow is just the icing on the cake to this sweet little hat.
I made this hat years ago when I was working with groups of ladies selling pageant wear on ebay boutique. It was a fun time, but ebay raised their rates and there was a mass exodus to Etsy.
I have really enjoyed my time on Etsy and it continues to be a fun place. When I started using Etsy the only internet we had access to was dial – up. It took forever to load my photos. I have vague memories of using a compressor. I would spend an hour or more trying to list my items. Now it’s a snap.

• From wrong side, attach Stripes night sky, fun fur, and repeat Rnd. 1, (Rnd. 16), five more times, and end off. Be sure to crochet from the wrong side, so that the fluffy side of the yarn, shows on the right side. Leave enough of a tail to weave down to where the yarn was attached, and tie in several knots to secure. I also tie the yarn into the knot. This yarn is a little slippery, and can come unraveled. I will sometimes sew the knot to the brim, with needle and thread, if it
seems a little unstable.
Sew on the bow, attaching it to the brim, just above the first row of fun fur.
