Yay!  My first post in the crochet board!  I never thought it would happen, even after watching my mother crochet throughout my childhood, since I just couldn't seem to get the hang of it (she gave up the hook years ago).  But this weekend, while resting up and awaiting the arrival of my due-any-day-now baby, I found my crochet hooks and yarn and made these two hats while attempting to make a hat for the new wee one.  Alas, I can't follow a pattern to save my life, so they ended up *quite* big- one fits me, and one fits my son's head.   Roll Eyes  There's always attempt #3!

So here they are, posted as encouragement to anyone who can do a Double Crochet stitch that you CAN make a hat that's one giant spiral, starting at the top of the head and ending up at the eyebrows:

Here's the front, where I sort of skipped every other stitch (don't know how to explain it... I'm a total newbie) to make the rim a little tighter for two rows:


And the back- you can see where the spiral ends:


And the "baby" hat turned "toddler" hat:


Thanks for looking!!  You have each been such a great inspiration to me!

These were your first projects? Very impressive. My first was a scarf done in all single crochet that was an inch wider on one end than on the other. Bravo!

This hat makes you not only a crocheter, but also a designer as well!  Nice job.
