A Tale of Two Hats and A Triangle

This is the new hat I made for Martin. I gave it to him when he came over Saturday afternoon( 02/18/2017). Grandma and Grandpa babysat while Mama and Daddy went out for a belated Valentine’s Day date.

I don't have a baby/toddler size foam head. This is why the hat looks so small.

I was also able to add some more rows to the triangle shawl. I took some new photos so as to compare with the last ones.

Pattern Used: Simple Triangle Shawl By: Sharon Maher from Laughing Purple Goldfish Designs

The top side measures 58 inches.So all in all I have added almost 5 inches to each side.I am now out of scrap balls again. I was thinking it may be big enough now. I was thinking to single crochet one or two rows across the top and one row of single crochet along the sides. Then add some type of border to the sides then add fringe. I have left over fringe from all the scarves I have made, I always cut to many. 😀

So what do you think should I trim it up now or add some more rows when I get some more scraps?
