i have been wanting one of these hats for ages, have seen it on celebs like Kiera Knightley and Gwen Stefani but could never find a picture.  I finally found one that Gwen makes for L.A.M.B. here goes



I am a knitter just new to crocheting, but I really want to make this hat!  To me it just looks like a tube, but I have no idea how to do that with crocheting.  For example, with knitting you would start at the widest part of the hat and move to the top, but I think with crocheting you would start from the top and work down.  Any tips?

Do you start with a little circle and then build on that until it is the width you want?  Like I said, i'm new to crocheting but i guess i can try something like that

it looks like double crochet stich (DC).  u could make a chain of however long u want, and slip stitch to the first chain u made to make a circle, and then just keep crocheting around, slip stitching into the first stitch u make in that round(does that make sense).  To make a tube.  and when the tube is as long as u want it, u could just decrease the stitches until u have only one and fasten off.

I would start with a circle--chain maybe five or so, join w/ a sl st., then sc or dc(whichever you prefer) in the loop until the circle lies flat, join with a slip st.  Keep building rows of single or double crochet, increasing the same # of stitches as you made in the first loop--if that makes sense (ie. if you used 10 stiches in row 1, then row 2-make 2 stiches in each stitch of first row(20sts done), row3- single stitch in first stich, 2 in every other stitch, repreat to end(30sts), etc., etc.)
  do this until it looks like it would fit on your melon, then stop increasing, just stitch 1 in every stitch below until it is long and droopy like the pic.  It looks like they switched to sc for the last few rows to make a more durable, snug sort of binding. 

I've been wanting one of these too, so you know, I'll just make on this weekend.  I'm always crocheting hats, just by trial and error.  I usually make beanies, but these are so cool.  If it works, I'll post my results for ya!

Ok, dexterchick, thats what I thought.  I just got Happy Hooker so I made a circle like you are talking about last night so I get the idea.  One more question though, the rows nearest the edge are single crochet right? so are the rows farther up (like where the yellow stripe is) double crochet, or is that a different stitch?  I know I could just experiment, but it seems much easier to ask people who know what they're doing.  I'm glad you like the hat too!  My boyfriend has dreads and has many tams I like to steal, but these hats aren't as poofy as tams so I think i might like it even better.  I am also tickled that you called my head a melon, hehe

Yeah, it looks like the top part is double crochet.
