My grandson is 2-1/2 years old and a HUGE fan of Captain America. Last year I made him a dinosaur hat. This year he told me he needed a "Cap'n 'Merica" hat. Soooo, this is what I was noodling around with today. It's just a basic earflap hat (chunky yarn). I'm a way better knitter than crocheter so I knit the hat and used a pretty basic crochet pattern for the "wings" and the "A" . Here's the pattern I used for the wings and the "A" http://stitch11.com/captain-america/
Hm, not sure why it looks like there's a "jog" on the trim in front - must be the way it's sitting on the stand

Thanks ladies! I had a lot of fun making it. I think it took me as long to make the "A" and the wings than it did the hat. lol. Still struggling with crochet but I like to try :-)

I'll do it :thumbup: Sending it off to him in the mail tomorrow. As soon as I have a picture I'll post. In the meantime, here's my favorite little man in his Halloween costume for this year. He loves to wear it!

He's quite a sweet little guy. I can't wait for more grandkids! You know how that saying goes - If I knew grandchildren would be this much fun I would have had them first! lol

Awww, thanks ladies! My grandson called me yesterday and said "Hi Mine! Thank you for my Capn Merica hat!" lol...made me smile all day. He calls me "Mine". We're not quite sure why but that's what he's always called me :-)
