I made this hat using the pattern from:
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=133884.0
Awsome pattern! Thank you so much for sharing it LuvCrochet. <3's~ ^__^ I crocheted this with some old yarn I had in my stash that had lost it's lable. I think it's the Homespun from Lionbrand but I have no glue what the color name is. (If anyone knows the color name please tell me! lol It's so pretty I would like to have more. ^^) I combined with it some Red Heart yarn to make it warmer and thicker. The color for it was Ocean. <3's~ You can't really see the Ocean yarn because the other was so thick. lol It gets windy here sometimes and I get earaches easily so on the inside of the earflaps I added a thick layer of felt and covered that in purple fleece to better keep out the wind. I wore it several days ago when it was windy and it really worked! I wasn't sure it it would keep the wind out of my ears as good as I hoped but it did. <3's~ lol  Well please let me know what you think! This is my first have ever and I'm pleased with how it turned out. <3's~ ^____^

I came to look at this because I recognized the yarn in the picture on the front page  Cheesy  I have a scarf I made out of that Red Heart yarn in that same colorway - it's hanging next to me on the wall in fact  Cheesy  I love it.
