i started crocheting this little beanie while i was killing time one day. i got a wild hair up my yahoo and decided to get my mohawk shaved off, and it just happened that the hat is perfect for my newly short-haired head.



it rides high a-top my head and doesn't come down very far, making it a perfect summer hat. i also used a sc 1 ch1 pattern, then crocheted under the chains on my next rows through the main body of the hat. the white along the bottom is hdc.



this gives a little better view of the colors and stitchwork and all that technical shiz.

the top of the hat is just a circle, and uses alot of sc and dc thrown in where i feel like it.

the whole thing was worked without a pattern, but is pretty self explanatory. just circle up (not perfectly, you want it to have some curve) and then when it's sufficiently wide, just stop increasing until it's as long as you want it.

it's just a silly little cap to keep me lookin' and feelin' cool for the summer months.

Good job bassist. I'm not brave enough to attempt this, but would like to see the Mohawk. How long have you been doing this? You make it look easy.

my little personal logo thingy shows my hawk in all it's laid down, don't-give-a-crap-enough-to-put-it-up glory.

forrealz with words, though, crocheting silly things is so easy. i'm pretty good with patterns and all that junk, but it's a ton more fun just to starting rolling something off, even if you have a ton of frogging to do in the middle.
