Here are a few of many hats I've made since I've learned how to crochet.
Most have been given away as gifts, but I kept this for myself:

There are several different yarns in here, all with a strand of mohair for the fluff. There's a grey/blue, turquoise, and a glittery silver yarn too. I was going after a bonnet feel. I made this about 2 years ago.
Here's the "back":

But you can wear it this way:

OR this way:

I made this one about 3 years ago, and I'm not sure which stitch I used! I love it tho. It kinda reminds me of a Sherlock Holmes hat.

This is with the brim toward the back (and apparently, a model pose. sheesh.)

close up of that stitch I love.

This is my more recent, and one of the few I've made for a guy. This one reminds me of a drum major hat or something.

I weaved the red yarn in/out of the stitches.
Dang! It's hard to see, but the hat cups the ears.

this one shows the side view:

Thanks so much for looking!!

I really like the combination of yarns in the first hat.

I'm jealous of the drum major hat. What's the "stich I love" called? I love it too!

I don't know!It's some sort of weave stitch. I found it in a pattern and just followed orders. I'll try to find out and get back to you!
