This is the second hat I've made. (I just recently started crocheting, and I'm addicted!) I've been on a bit of a hat binge. I've made six in two months. I realize most of you could shove those out in a few days, but I'm still learning. Plus I don't read patterns so I have to figure it out as I go along. The truth is, I'll probably make hats for a while because I don't know how to crochet lines, only circles.
I don't know if you can tell, but it is single stitch with every three or four rows, one row of double stitch. Then I sewed on those three small circles and black faceted beads.
Thanks for looking! As I said, I'm new to this whole thing so I'd really appreciate any comments or suggestions.
