It feels so weird to be posting on the crochet board- I'm mainly a knitter! But I got the urge to start hooking the other night, and in a matter of hours I had worked up that hat!
I based the pattern on an old skull cap pattern that I found years ago at an old website called GroovyCrochet.com - you can find the link here now:
I made quite a few modifications, as the gauge is TOTALLY off in that pattern (the first time I made it, it could have fit a watermelon). The yarn is just some random worsted weight acrylic I had in my stash. I used a size G hook.
I wore this hat all day yesterday on a wine tour, and it was a hit! I may have just converted back to crochet ;-)
