Here is my entry for the crochet challenge.  Its a fedora...its a squid....its a squidora!  I'm really pleased with how it turned out.  I sewed some craft wire into the brim so it can be manipulated to whatever shape you prefer.



This shot shows how the tentacles curl over the hat..



Here is an action shot.  My camera sucks!

The hat itself is awesome and squid just adds to it. 

Did you have a pattern for the hat?

Thanks for the compiments guys. 

I didn't have a pattern for the hat.  I've crocheted so many hats over the years, I just make it up as I go along.  Increasing and decreasing as I see fit to get the shape that I want.

I really like that hat, and for some reason it make me immediately think of They Might Be Giants.  I have nothing to back up that statement.

That is awesome! The hat looks good on its own, I've not seen many crochet ones like that, but the squid totally makes it. And the name is really cool too!
