I love the color grey, so I had to get this yarn at my lys last time I went. I finally got around to making a loop, and next thing I knew, it fit around my head! So here are some pictures, and I know you love looking down my shirt to see my granny bra. Heck yeah...

Eva, you're so cute! I love your hat. Much much MUCH better than my first one. Mine turned out like a giant bowl, and not in a good way.

Looks great !
What stitch did you use around the bottom of the hat - it looks really effective.

Ummm, I cant remember what its called! I know what you do is take the top stich of the row and do a sincle crochet through it. It makes a really neat 'o knit look!

Okay, I lied. I made a hat on a 4 hour road trip this Christmas to match a scarf I made for my aunt.... too bad she doesnt have dreads, because it was a fantastic tam!!! Lips sealed

You look REALLY cute in that hat (mostly it's you, but the hat is cute too) ! I agree with lizzy.cos I like the look of that band of lower stitching, actually kinda looks like naalbinding to me...or knitting turned sideways.
If you remember the name of that stitch in the lower rows please post it.. Do you think it's maybe a slip stitch (is that right? jeez, I'm really bad with remembering the names of stitches myself)--I mean like a chain stitch worked into the row below?)

Okay! I finally found the book my MIL gave me for christmas that has it in there. It is "The "I Taught Myself To Crochet" Book" published by Boye in...1975. It came in a kit with all sorts of hooks and stich markers. Here we go:
Single Crochet Vertical Stripe
With CC, ch 1, remove hook. Working up, insert hook to back of sc and pick up ch, draw through to front. And since I think those instructions sucked, here is a tut from paint:

Hope this helped!

OK, I don't quite get it, don't answer if this is too hard but I have 2 questions:

1. Do you crochet a starting chain, then a few/ several rows of single crochet and THEN crochet into/ on top of them in some way? or do you do the chain, then one row of single crochet and then single crochet on top/ into the bottom of it? (I'm not sure what the "dark grey bottom stitch" you mention refers to--is it the chain stitch you crocheted that first single crochet row into? or is it a part of the single crochet stitch?)

2. after you have worked the second/ new row of single crochet into the dark grey bottom stitches (still unclear as to what those are!), where does the NEXT row go/ get attached?

SORRY to be so dense-- maybe this is too late at night for me to be trying to figure out something new! I should probably try googling this and looking at some technique websites instead of browbeating a poor innocent new crocheter to teach me her techniques...I will try to figure this out tomorrow!

Anyway thanks for the pics and for stretching my brain!!!
