I wanted a big flower. I found a big flower pattern. I made a big flower.
EDIT: I have since made this hat again, but I tried to make it larger. The top turned out a little different, but fine, nonetheless. This will be a Christmas gift for my almost 4 year old cousin. I don't know how my aunt would feel about a big honkin' flower, so I made a teeny one, just to accent the hat a little. [Side note: I really enjoy crocheting flowers!]
