Okay so I made a thread a few weeks ago with a TON OF STUFF

Since then, I have made not-quite-a-ton of stuff, so I will post it all here!

Okay when I first started to crochet, I made a hat for my dear friend Eric.  Since that day, he has worn the hat about five bajillion times.  I made him a hat about two years ago so he could have some variety; however, he decided that it was 'too girly' (link here).  He says it is 'powder blue,' I say it is 'steel blue.'  Whatevs.  So since he DOES NOT WEAR the awesome basketweave hat, I made him this one (at his request).  So far, he approves.


Yes, yet another ever-popular Divine hat, this time in a beautiful shade of purple (for a friend)!


So, about two years after making this scarf for my BFF Jarrod (who is now my boyfriend, omg!), I have finally fulfilled my promise of making him a hat to go with it.  Now all I have to do is mail it to him (he's currently living in Boston; I made the hat not-too-thick, though, since he's soon moving down here to Florida, and I want him to still be able to wear it).


For my dear friend from Ireland, a hat to match his scarf (which I did not make; I merely patterned the stripes after the scarf):


For me.  A Divine hat with a brim.  Not sure how much I like it.


A neckwarmer!  So useful here in Florida.  I dunno what I'm going to do with it.  Maybe I should open an Etsy shop, as everyone keeps telling me.  o.o


Finally, I finished a scarf to match this HOT PINK (I swear) and green earflap hat I posted in my last thread.  For a friend's GF.  This is my FIRST TIME doing a Chevron pattern!  I like it.  Cheesy



Thanks for looking!  Cheesy

I love them all but that scarf to match the hat in those BRIGHT colors is my favorite!

Depending on the difficulty, it usually only takes a few hours.  I haven't timed myself yet, since I'm always busy doing other stuff and getting distracted.  I'd guess about 4-5 hours?

The brim isn't terribly stiff.  I can bend it and adjust it, but it's stiff enough to hold where I put it.

I switched to a smaller hook (um, G I believe, from J) and worked in SC rows.  When I connected the brim's yarn, I worked in the posts of the last row of SCs on the hat's bottom edge, so that the brim would come out from there.  Then I just worked back and forth, decreasing every other row.

If I were to do it again, I think I'd start the brim wider, as the end of the brim is a little narrow for my tastes.
