It seems like everyone is in love with super thick yarn lately!  Am I the only one that likes the thinner softer stuff?
For example: 
This is my three year old wearing a hat I made with a very thick yarn and a very big hook.  It seems like a lot of people LOVE this type of hat!  Just from friends/family seeing the pics of my daughter wearing it.
Here's some pics of the hats I like and usually make:





I guess I should get into using the thicker yarns, but I personally don't like wearing them as much.   What do you think?  Which would you prefer to wear or wear on your child?

For hats, I prefer thinner yarn.  I think the thicker yarn is more appropriate for scarves,  rugs, and other assorted non-wearables.   Smiley

I like the hats you made with the thinner yarn myself.... although your little girl is cute as a button in her big blue battle helmet.  :-)

I prefer the thicker yarn.  But the thin is good too.

One does not simply walk into Mordor. Its black gates are guarded by more than just orcs. There is evil there that does not sleep. The great eye is ever watchful. It is a barren wasteland, riddled with fire, ash, and dust. The very air you breathe is a poisonous fume.......

I reckon the temperature would influence choice of yarn--in the thick of winter with lots of snow, a thick woolly hat would be great.  In Fall, you might not need so much warmth and a thinner yarn might be nice.

I prefer worsted weight for hats.  I find heavier yarns can be way too warm for me, and worsted weight is usually just about right.  I'll occasionally make a hat in sport yarn, but that's rare, as my hats are almost always made for winter.

I think it depends on the project. I like crocheting with all types of yarn, thread, etc. I love all your hats, and your daughter's a real cutie!
