This baseball bat and baseball hat was a special request from a girlfriend.
For the hat I ended up using a single crochet for body of the hat so I could keep the red baseball stitches a little nicer looking. From looking at other patterns/finished products it appeared that the larger the stitch used in making the hat the harder it is to get the red baseball stitches to look nice.
I found that using my tutorial for guide lines really helped keep the final look of the stitches looking nice.
Finding the buttons I was looking for was not as hard as I thought it might be. My first stop was JoAnns where I found some baseball buttons, was not thrilled about the price but at the time they were on sale, so I bought them. A few days later I was at Hancock Fabric were I found some buttons that made me want to return the first buttons that I found, and the price was perfect!
Then came the baseball bat. This took a little more time. First issue was finding the color of yarn that would remind you of a wood bat, and thanks to the free opinion of several gals at Hancock Fabric the decision was made Bernat Super Saver – Topaz. Then I needed to figure out how to change the handle into a bat without it loosing the bat look I was striving for.
Once I figured out how to work the handle and started up the cocoon part of the bat I realized that I would have to rip the bat out back down to the base of the handle. Why? You may be asking, the seam from joining was quite obvious, and looked really bad. So that was when I decided that the best way to make the bag look nice is to work it in rounds. I don’t normally chose to work in rounds as I think it to be too much work and don’t really see the big difference. Well in the bat it was completely worth it! So I got myself a few markers and was quite pleased with the final product.
