Crocheted Aviator Cap

School holidays begin tomorrow!

Over the next few days I expect to be out and about a lot in the cold, so I've been crocheting this cute cap the last two nights, and got it finished!

Well ... except for sewing in the ends :-(

The original pattern, once again from the Lincraft Crochet 2008-9 book is made from gorgeous Prism yarn, which unfortunately I can't wear, since it's wool. I tried the cap in various other yarns I had, but nothing but stripes would do! So out came the acrylic yarns from the $2 shop which I've got stashed away to make a wavy rug at some point ... and this is the colourful result!

I love it - but will I have the courage to wear it in public, I wonder???

It's very .... colourful and girly!

But .. I couldn't resist the allure of stripes
.. and the plaits ...
