Sounds like a great stash buster!  I'm in(and I do love hats too!)  Give me something quick and easy to do in between swaps and bigger projects.  Wheee!

well the pattern calls for a K hook, that would be a 7 in metric.
tell me what type of yarn you have?

worsted weight should work fine... use your biggest hook (i think you said you had a J/6) if you don't have a tight gauge it should be fine because it will stretch some. or you could always add in a few extra increases to make it wider around

I'm really eager to start on the September one - it's gorgeous.  I found some old yarn my mom had and I'm not sure if it's the right kind.  Is 'shetland chunky' thicker than 'worsted weight'?  Or is it still ok to use & I won't end up with a hat 3 times bigger than my head?

i would have to see it to know for sure but just by the word 'chunky' it sounds bigger. Worsted weight is basically the standard size, the yarn monkeythumb posted up there is worsted weight.
Depending on how big the yarn is you can cut back on the increasing rounds which will help keep it from being really big at the widest part or deacrease a few extra rounds which will make it a larger size but the decreases will bring it in enough to fit your head.

I just printed out the pattern for the September hat and I'm ready to get started! This is going to be a great way for me to use up some of my yarn stash Smiley

This is so weird - id just found the nov pattern on the web and bought the yarn and then I saw this crochetalong! Im a bit dubious about the fact it uses 4ply yarn though, that seems a bit of a thin weight yarn for a hat... is this right?
