I went crazy with hats for Xmas gifts, all in new homes now.  Complete pics at http://redcrochet.blogspot.com/2006/12/xmas-fos.html.  Here are a couple of my faves:

My friend immediately started wearing hers around town and graciously modeled it for me.  The yarn Plymouth Outback Wool--370 yards/hank for $16!  Pretty elastic, not too scratchy, beautiful colorways.  I was so happy to find it, and it's great to work with.

Thanks for looking, and Happy New Year!

Those are really nice! I like the one that is sort of greyish/blue above the bobble hat the best.  I really like that one.  Is it from a pattern or do you have a tut available?

Checked out your link, and all your hats are lovely! Lots of nice details and variety in the way they look. And the scarf looks gorgeous, that's going to be a treat to wear.

Thanks!  It was fun making all of them.  For some reason the photos died today; I fiddled with the original post, hopefully they're visible now.  Otherwise there are links.

Minivanmomma, I'm working on a tutorial, possibly to submit to Crochetme.com.  I've never written a pattern before and it's coming out way too wordy.  Huh  Will post one in a few days.

I love how the edging/scallops on the second hat turned out with those colors! Very nice. Your stitches are so uniform too!  Grin

Oooo - I really like them! Especially the purply one with the flower. I tried doing a hat for Christmas this year, but it turned out gargantuan. These re-inspired me, though...maybe I'll work on birhtday hats!

Thanks, everyone.  I wanted to keep the blue/gray starburst hat template for future use.  Here it is, my very first pattern.  Also available at: http://redcrochet.blogspot.com/2007/01/starburst-hat-tutorial-this-hat-is.html


STARBURST HAT TUTORIAL

This hat is crocheted from the top down in the round, working in one direction.  It fits pretty close, almost like a stocking hat.  The starburst accent is created with four alternating rows of 5-dc shells and dc5tog's. 

Important Tip:  To keep the seam straight, begin every other row by crocheting the first stitch one stitch ahead (to the left) of the slip stitch join.  However, do not do this for the 5dc shell and 5dctog rows. 

Yarn:  DK to worsted weight yarn, in Main Color (MC) and Contrast Color (CC).  I used Knit Picks Andean Silk in gray and Malabrigo handspun/hand dyed merino in a sky blue. 

Hook:  5mm, more or less depending on yarn and preference. 

Special stitches:
   -5dc-shell:  5 dc in same stitch
   -dc5tog: (Yarn over (YO), insert hook into next stitch, YO, draw yarn through stitch, YO, draw yarn through 2 loops on hook) five times.  Then YO, draw yarn through all 6 loops on hook, chain 1 to close. 
   -dc2tog: (Yarn over (YO), insert hook into next stitch, YO, draw yarn through stitch, YO, draw yarn through 2 loops on hook) twice.  Then YO, draw yarn through all 3 loops on hook. 
   
TEMPLATE/PATTERN:

Foundation:  In Main Color (MC), Chain 3, slip stitch in first chain to join into circle.

1:     Ch 2 (counts as first half double crochet (hdc)), 8 hdc in circle over the loose tail.  Slip stitch in second chain of turning chain to join.  Work in one direction from here on; do not turn.  Pull the tail to tighten the circle.  (9 hdc)
2:   Ch 1, 2 hdc in each stitch across.  Slip stitch in top of first hdc to join. (18 hdc)
3:   Ch 1, (2 hdc in first stitch, 1 hdc in next stitch) across.  Slip stitch in top of first hdc to join.  (27 hdc)
4:   Ch 1, (2 hdc in first stitch, 1 hdc in each of next two 2 stitches) across. (36 hdc)
5:    Ch 1, (2 hdc in first stitch, 1 hdc in each of next 3 stitches) across.  Slip stitch in top of first hdc to join.  (45 hdc)

Continue established pattern, increasing by 9 hdcs each row, until you reach the desired diameter, 6 to 7 inches depending on head size.  (I used Contrast Color (CC) in rows 6 and 9, and reached my diameter for a smallish hat in row 9.) Begin side rows. 

Side row 1:  In MC,  hdc each stitch across, increasing or decreasing a few stitches evenly as needed to achieve the multiple of 7 six (6) stitches required by the starburst pattern.  Slip stitch to join.
 
Starburst pattern:

Side row 2:  In MC, ch1, sc in first stitch, (skip 2 hdc, 5dc-shell in next hdc, skip 2 hdc, sc in next hdc) across.  Slip stitch with CC on top of first sc. 

Side row 3:  [completely revised 11/15/07] In CC, chain 2, dc2tog on first two dcs of MC shell below, ch1, sc into last leg of shell just made, sc into 3rd dc of MC shell below; (ch 2, dc5tog [across next 2 dc + next sc + next 2 dc], ch1, sc into last leg of dc5tog just made, sc in next dc [of MC shell below] across until two MC dcs remain. Ch 2, dc2tog in last two dcs of shell, slip stitch on top of turning chain/dc2tog to join.

Side row 4:  In CC, (ch 3, 2 dc) in same stitch as slip stitch join [top of first 2dc cluster], sc in next sc. (5dc-shell on top of next dc5tog [into ch1 closure], sc in next sc) across. End with 2dc in same stitch as beginning (Ch3, 2dc) cluster, slip stitch in MC to join.

Side row 5:  [revised 11/15/07]. In MC, ch1, sc in first stitch, (5dctog [across next 2 dc + next sc + next 2 dc], ch1, sc into last leg of cluster just made, sc into next dc) across. After last 5dctog, sc into last leg of cluster just made, slip stitch to first sc to join.

To close starburst pattern
Side row 6:  In MC, hdc in same stitch as slip stitch, hdc in each of next 2 ch, hdc in top of dc5tog, skip next ch, hdc in next sc*, hdc in next sc [the one on top of the shell].  End with slip stitch in top of first hdc.  You should now have the same number of stitches as in side row 1. 

Return to normal rows:
Side row 7:  In CC, ch1, hdc across.  In MC, slip stitch in top of first hdc to join.

Add plain hdc rows as necessary, alternating MC and CC as desired, with MC in next to last row when hat is about 7.25 inches long.

Last row/border:  In CC, ch 1, sc in same hdc, sc in next hdc, spike sc (inserting hook 1/4" below where you normally would), sc in each of nest 3 hdc) across, ending with slip stitch in first sc.  Tie off.   Youll be short a stitch or two in the end, but thats okay.

Finishing:  weave in loose ends.  Voila!  Your starburst hat.
