Knitty's Couvercle http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEsummer08/PATTcouvercle.html
I had bought a skein of Debbie Mumm for Jo-Ann Traditions in Pine Needle. I loved the colors. I wanted to make a hat with it!
I have always wanted a beanie with a brim on it. When I saw this pattern...I knew I was going to use the yarn I had been hoarding!
I followed the pattern for the adult large (only because i didnt have size 9 needles - and used size 8's - the guage just worked out well for me.)
I love how it turned out. I dont crochet much. Only edgings and chains. Thats my extent. I now know a bit more about crocheting. I think I might make the brim another row or two wider (when I make another one). I am definately going to make presents from this pattern. Everyone seems to love it! Even the boyfriend.
I can't wait to see other peoples Couvercles.
