I have a new pattern for sale, it's a slouchy striped hat. This beret is only slightly slouchy, so it can also be worn as a standard beanie if desired. The increases are almost invisible, and the brim is snug enough to ensure that it won't fall off your head. I hope you enjoy it! PDF file available for purchase and download for $3.00 here:

I know this pattern isn't for everyone, but I recently had the privilege of meeting my neighbor, Jillian's rat, Lily. She is sooo cute! I used to think that rats were disgusting little creatures, until my best friend, Cherish, lived with us. Her rat, Nicodemus, was trained to do little tricks, and he was a neat little guy. Through Nicodemus (RIP, little buddy!), I learned that rats are actually very clean animals. They are extremely intelligent, and they're pretty fun. So, when I got to meet Lily, I was thrilled! So were the dogs:
I wanted to knit or crochet something for Lily, so I made her a hammock!
She isn't so sure about it yet, but I think she'll learn to like it. The pattern PDF can be downloaded for free here:
I hope your little buddies enjoy it!
