I started it out like this (in an M hook btw)
round 1: chain three, slip stitch to make a ring, chain 2.
round 2: hdc 7 times in the hole slip stitch in chain 2 then chain 2
round 3: hdc in chain 2 of previous round then 2 hdc in each stitch around slip stitch in chain 2 then chain 2
round 4: hdc in chain 2 of previous round then  *hdc in next stitch and 2hdc in the next stitch* repeat around, slip stitch in chain 2 then chain 2
round 5: hdc in chain 2 of previous round then*hdc in next two stitched and 2 hdc in the next stitch*repeat around, slip stitch in chain 2 then chain 2
round 6: hdc in chain 2 of previous round then  *hdc in next 3 stitches and 2hdc in the next stitch* repeat around, slip stitch in chain 2 then chain 2
round 7: hdc in chain 2 of previous round then  *hdc in next 4 stitches and 2hdc in the next stitch* repeat around, slip stitch in chain 2 then chain 2
round 8: hdc in chain 2 of previous round then  *hdc in next 5 stitches and 2hdc in the next stitch* repeat around, slip stitch in chain 2 then chain 3
here's the part where it might get hard.
I start using dc on the next rows; I (depending on how slouchy you want the top of the hat) dc on each stitch and sometimes put two dc's in one stitch to make it bigger and on the next couple rows just do one dc in each stitch around. I do as many rows as it takes to touch the top of my ears (which is usually 2 or 3). ((for these rounds I put popcorn stitches instead of dc's on some of my hats (like my mom's hat shown in the pic above if you chose to use those I alternated between popcorn stitch and dc around))
now I go to a dec dc and decrease number of stitches till it fits snuggly around my head. then add two rows of 1 hdc in each stitch.


I hope this makes sense and if you have any questions I'll be sure to answer them for you. I will make another hat soon and I'll write a more precise pattern and take progress shots as well.

Your hat is super cute.  I will have to try it one day. 

I finished a cute coffee cup cozy for my friend last night.  I used this pattern... http://www.coatsandclark.com/Crafts/Crochet/Projects/Seasonal/WR1052+Crochet+Coffee+Cozy.htm
But I did not make it a solid bank for around the cup.  I added a little string on the back side to give it some extra color and it will expand to fit on other cups as well.

I took some pictures of it and all the other projects I have finished recently but I didn't have time to take them off the camera and put them online.  I will post them tonight when I get home from work.

I am pretty happy with it.  Especially because it took my like an hour to finish it while I was watching TV.

a ripple blanket for my sister
a hooded scarf for my bf's brother's girlfriend (changed to slouchy hat)
slouchy hat for my mom
something for my bf's mom and dad (idk what yet though)
a painting for my grandpa (have the idea but haven't started painting)
and a tri-force pillow for my bf's brother (HELP!)

okay so I need ideas on what to make my bf's parents for christmas
and I need ideas on what to make my grandma
and...

I started a green and yellow tri-force pillow for my bf's brother but I've decided that I don't like it. it's too small, and I don't think he'd like it. but I want to salvage the tri-force that I already made and turn it into something else. it's a square prolly about 3 in. by 2in. done in hdc. does anyone have any ideas?

What about putting it onto a messanger bag.  Or add it to a scarf or hat.  These aren't all that creative but it might be cute.  Or would it be big enough to make a sheild pillow and use that as the center of it?  Then maybe make a tri-force pillow still too then he would have a set of Zelda Pillows.

I think I'm going to make the tri-force into a scarf
but first I have to finish my grandfather's sign. I have to have it done by Dec. 13th  Shocked
so I need to get dooone
I have the plaque and some dark blue paint (bought some "Oops paint" from work lol)
I'm going to make him a sign that says "Grandpa's Winery, No whining allowed"
I also bought some alphabet stickers, some Modge Podge and now I need to get an old map and then get the nerve to start >.<

That is awesome!  I love the sign phrase. 

We painted our whole apartment in Oops paint.  I personally think it is awesome to get nice paint for $5/gallon.

I really need to pick up the pace with my projects and start finishing up some stuff.  I have about half of my scarves and stuff done but I wanted to make my BF a set of the super cute Teenage mutant ninja turtle guys.  We will see if I have the time, without him around to complete them.   Grin

hi everyone, i've been a long time lurker and i figured this thread is a good chance for me to get my feet wet in the community. so this year, goal was to make a present for family and friends. sadly, i decided on this goal towards mid-nov. so it doesn't really allow me a bunch of time to come up with a project and execute them before xmas. then of course, i failed to factor in finals... so here is my list:

* i've got about 5 scarves planned, one is a spiral one, one is connecting a bunch of little circles, one is connecting a bunch of small 5 sided granny squares, and not sure about the other two [so in total, i have one completed, two started, and not sure about two]

* i made a bunch of ami mice with catnip for my friend's cats

* i'm planning on making a simple afghan for grandparents and parents, but i'm running short on time. any ideas for something simple but goes beyond a plain stitch and can be completed in a day or two?

* i'm also thinking about making clutches for my little nieces and cousins [but i'm sure i'm gonna run out of time... and just revert back to my original ideas for them -- hats and scarves...]

* and lastly, i'm planning on making one of these totes [http://mamaspocketbook.com/freebies.htm] since i just got my sewing machine. i think this will just be an xmas gift to myself to congratulate the ending of another hectic holiday season.
