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.

Want to learn to crochet or knit?  I have a ton of extra crochet hooks & circular knitting needles.  Will throw in some pattern books and yarn for anyone interested in a swap.

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!
