Very nice hat! Great job!

I too am totally upset that they are taking the servers down to fix things. Why can't they just let things stay broken? I don't care if I can't move due to lag or if quests are bugged. If I leave my room my mom may make me get a job.

thanks for all the nice comments! and to those of you who get frustrated w/ crocheting: try tunisian crocheting!  it's way easier, in my opinion, because the stitches are really easy to see.  there are tons of tutorials out there!

I LOVE this! Did you use a pattern or make it up yourself?

thanks, everyone   Kiss

I based my pattern off of a free pattern here on craftster, you'll probably find it if you search for "tunisian hat."  I just changed the stitch, made the foundation chain longer, and added sc to the bottom.  And the houndstooth pattern was inspired/stolen from my coat.

It's not worked in the round but the seam is nearly invisible.  I wove the yarn through in the pattern so it looked like a final row.  If anyone makes a tunisian hat, with either the basic or knit stitch, I can take pics and show how to make an invisible seam...  you should see the seams of earlier hats, ha Roll Eyes I learned the hard way Grin

aww that's soo cute.. i totally with i had the patience to make the pretty pattern Smiley
as for the pom pom... do one or two of each color you used in the hat and make them dangle with about an inch of like a crocheted cord.. that would look awesome Smiley

Great hat! Love the color combination!! What yarn did you use?
I think the pattern might be a gingham check rather than houndstooth though.
You could make two hanging pompoms, sort of like ear flaps?

The brown is red heart soft and the teal is caron simplysoft.  milksmom and MidoriMentality, thanks for the pompom ideas!  I'll have to play around with them.
