DD decided that she wanted a black and white striped beanie, but Hot Topic's price is ridiculous.  I found a pattern, changed the colors, and whipped this up in record time.  It's all dc, except for the last round.

I somehow ended up with what looks like a seam in the back where the rounds start/end.  I'll have to work on that more with future ones.

Oh I love this!!!  I need to make one to match my crocheted black and white striped purse and blanket.  The seam isn't very noticeable.  Congrats though and saving a lot of money and making such a cool hat!  Hottopic is way too expensive.

Your beanie is real cute.  A little hint for the seam.  When I do dc in the round, I always ch 2 at the beginning of a round, then do a dc in the same place, but do not count the ch2 as a stitch. When finishing the round,  I slst in the dc not the chain 2.  This seems to make the seam almost invisible.

And thank you for the tip, sprtsbear!  The pattern called for a ch 3 at the beginning and finishing up with a sl st into that 3rd ch.  I think the ch 2 is just what it needs instead.

DD put it on for me to take the pic, and she hasn't taken it off since.  I think it's safe to say she loves it.  Cheesy

Here's the link to the pattern.  DROPS crochet hat

I was just going to suggest the chain 2 at the beginning of each round.  I actually do that for all patterns worked in dc.  It just makes everything a little smoother.

Nice hat!

cool hat...  Cheesy i'm in the middle of crocheting a hat, too (diff style), and it is double crochets and calls for three single crochets to count as the first double crochets of each round, and I'm having the same seam prob... I think I'm going to try the tips for that given here... thanks everyone..

goin' crazy, and lovin' every minute...
