My grandmother taught me to crochet when I was really little, and I hadn't done it since then. Just recently my mom was talking about having me finish a throw she was working on when she passed away, and I decided I needed to get back in the hang of things.  So I made this. I didn't use a pattern... I just saw a hat like this and winged it. After a lot of undoing and redoing, its finished. I LOVE it, especially since I just hacked all my hair off Smiley Plus, it looks tie-dyed!





Thanks! Comments appreciated always Cheesy

Awesome hat you did great for not using a pattern.

There will always be people who say mean words  because you are different, and sometimes their minds cannot be changed. There are many more people who do not judge others based on how they look or where they are from. THOSE are the people whose WORDS truly matter.

Great job on the hat! I really like it. The yarn is fun and the scalloped edge adds a pretty touch.
