Some time ago I was totally inspired by The Nester's post about JuJu Hats. This was the first time I came across these gorgeous creations, remember I'm new to blogland. The Nester mentioned the blog Flutter Flutter and how its creator made her own version of a JuJu hat out of yarn! Brilliant! I headed to the nearest Michaels and spent a good fifteen minutes in the yarn section with my sisters and my screaming baby (who actually threw a number of items into my buggy unbeknown to me) pondering over yarn choices. Rosa from Flutter Flutter used a wool yarn but I decided on a "regular" yarn that was on sale for $2.49. My sisters and I each picked some yarn and were totally excited to get this project started.
My sister made her version of the yarn JuJu hat first and wasn't pleased with the way it turned out. It looked a bit wimpy and she decided she should have used more yarn. She then helped my other sister and I get started. We used Rosa's tutorial and tweaked it a bit. Here is the breakdown...

As you can see we made an array of different colors. This was a fun project that took a lot longer than expected;)
