Hubby is always complaining that I never make him anything. Last night I made him this hat. I used paton's merino wool yarn, less then 1 skein.  I love how the colors pooled and it has this weird stripey look. Plus he said it kept his head warm this morning while cleaning ice of the car windows.  I sorta followed the boy beanie hat from SnB happy hooker, using an F hook and DC, I just increased on rows that I felt like needed to be increased on until it got wide enough then I did straight DC rows with no increases

Plus I think he looks cute in it.

very nice!  I just made a hat for my husband this week too!  His boss actually complimented it! Smiley  And it does keep his bald head warm.  I used Lion brand Homespun  Which is really soft and warm. (Although a little hard to work with.) I don't think he would agree to pose for a picture, though. Smiley

Awww!  He DOES look cute in it!   Cheesy My husband never ask for anything because he's afraid I will make it and then he'll HAVE to wear it.   I suppose he thinks himself too manly to sport anything crochet. LOL

I love the interesting patterns self-striping yarn had a tendancy to make.  I crocheted my mom a sponge-holder scrubby thing for xmas out  of suga 'n' cream in landscape, and it has this neat wavy line down the middle.  Pity my camera broke.  *sigh*

sometimes the varigated yarns make a big UGGG but when it turns out cool it is super cool. I also used some of sugar and cream and it had some wavy lines in it.
