i was browsing the free people site and came across this super cute hat.

http://www.freepeople.com/index.cfm/fuseaction/products.detail/productID/618f0213-7bf1-4fc4-82e9-8d20058551a7/categoryID/3fc71ccc-7267-43f9-9905-d3ac296fb774

maybe in 2 subtler colors.

do you have any ideas how to make it?

i think this is the stitch, which is really shell stitch and reverse shell stitches. I can't zoom in to the picture but it looks like it to me

Ok so I started making the swatch and it's looking a lot like what you wanted, the only thing I'm not sure of is how many stitches we're going to need to do the pattern. Arrr! I'll figure something out. If anyone wants to jump in on this, go ahead but I will try to figure something out.

I figured out how to start it but once i do the first two rows of shells, I'm not sure how to increase it to make it floppy-ish like the pic.

This is what I've got so far:
chain 5, join to end to form loop
chain 2, dc 13 times in loop (14 sts)
chain 2, 2 dc in each dc (28 sts)
chain 2, dc in same sitch, dc in next dc, 2 dc
Chain 2, 3 dc in same stitch (beg half shell made), skip next 2 dcs, sc in next dc, *skip next 2 dc, 7 dc in next dc (Shell made), skip next 2 dc, sc in next dc, rep from * to last 3 dc, skip next 2 dc, 3 dc in last dc (Half Shell made); join to top of first chain 2.
Chain 1, sc, chain 3, Reverse Shell: Keeping last loop of each dc on hook (dc in same dc as last st made, dc in each of next 3 dc, dc in next sc, dc in next 4 dc) yo and draw yarn through all 10 loops on hook, ch 1.ch 3, sc in same st as last dc made, rep from * across to last shell, ch 3, keeping last loop of each dc on hook (dc in same dc as last sc made, dc in next 7 sts, dc in 2nd ch of t-ch) yo and draw yarn through all 10 loops on hook, ch 1, pull tight (End Reverse Shell made), ch 3, sc in same ch as last dc made.

That's what i thought at first but im not sure. Maybe I should have kept at it and finished it and THEN made corrections because It was starting to look like it would end up too tight but I dont know I didnt finish it. Maybe I should do that before I freak out lol And maybe your right, maybe I should go another round of dcs OR replace DCs with trebles. I think I'll experiment some more when i have some time tonight. Smiley

i'm looking at the picture of the close up. 

it looks like you put 28 dc in the starting loop.
and do 2 dc in each 28 sts.
and then start the shell pattern.

what do you think?
I also don't think they increase, just one big tube.  They might have decreased on the last row where its at your face.

That's another thing I was thinking of, maybe I need more stitches to start off with. I haven't tried my second attempt yet so I could try starting out with 28 like you mentioned. Thanks for the input!

btw- my first attempt was just using some scrap red heart yarn I had laying around. the second attempt though I think im going to use simply soft. If it looks good, I'll actually wear it lol

Ok so here are my revisions, I went up to round 9 but it still ended up kind of tight. I also figured out a way to increase it. I think it might have just been the hook (g) and the yarn (simply soft) that I used that ended up making it so small.

chain 7, join to end to form loop
Rnd 1 : chain 2, dc 27 times in loop (28 sts)
Rnd 2 : chain 2, 2 dc in each dc (56 sts)
Rnd 3 : Chain 2, 3 dc in same stitch (beg half shell made), skip next 2 dcs, sc in next dc, *skip next 2 dc, 7 dc in next dc (Shell made), skip next 2 dc, sc in next dc, rep from * to last 3 dc, skip next 2 dc, 3 dc in last dc (Half Shell made); join to top of first chain 2. {Change color here}
Rnd 4 : Chain 1, sc, chain 3, Reverse Shell: Keeping last loop of each dc on hook *(dc in same dc as last st made, dc in each of next 3 dc, dc in next sc, dc in next 4 dc) yo and draw yarn through all 10 loops on hook, ch 1.ch 3, sc in same st as last dc made, rep from * across to last shell, ch 3, keeping last loop of each dc on hook (dc in same dc as last sc made, dc in next 7 sts, dc in 2nd ch of t-ch) yo and draw yarn through all 10 loops on hook, ch 1, pull tight (End Reverse Shell made), ch 3, sc in same ch as last dc made.
Rnd 5 : *shell in top of next Reverse Shell, sc in next sc, rep from * across; {Change Color here}
Rnd 6 : tie new color on the 4th dc before the last sc made. Chain 2, reverse shell, chain 3, sc in same st as last dc made, rep from * across to last shell, ch 3, keeping last loop of each dc on hook (dc in same dc as last sc made, dc in next 7 sts, dc in 2nd ch of t-ch) yo and draw yarn through all 10 loops on hook, ch 1, pull tight (End Reverse Shell made), ch 3, sc in same ch as last dc made.
Rnd 7 : *shell in top of next Reverse Shell, sc in next sc, rep from * across; {Change Color here}
Rnd 8 : follow round 6, except: in reverse shell, dc in same stitch, 2 dc in next stitch, once there are 10 loops on the hook, 2 dc in next stitch, complete reverse shell (increase made)
Rnd 9 : same as round 7, except: 9 stitches per shell

i'm really excited for this hat. lol i would totally work on it.. but i dont know if i could figure the shell pattern out! i'm looking at it but totally blanking. i'm going to look at it later, and see if i can work it out.  Grin

i agree with Angel they prolly just decreased right before the face
