My daughter loves rainbows and keeps trying to get me to wear her rainbow hat in public. I like rainbows too but I also don't like tons of eyes on me. This hat is subtle enough for me to wear out LOL. I also thought ridges would be cool on a hat. Adds texture to the colored stripes. I named it Candy Rainbow because for some reason it reminds me of skittles haha. Maybe I just have candy on the mind with valentine's day coming up.  What do you think?
After this hat I am taking a month long break. I have so much stuff on hold to do. Smiley








*****Update 2-25-10*****
I'm sorry to have to do this but I feel I must. Some people have been making things with my free patterns and selling them without my permission. I am taking this pattern down. Please visit my blog for more details.

I don't really know. I have 4 storage containers full of yarn without labels. People just give me yarn all the time. (and my daughter ripped off most of my labels)  I bought the brown yarn from Walmart so I am assuming the other colors are the same. Red Heart is the name brand of the brown.

Your hats are beautiful and this one is my new favorite!
Thanks for the pattern and especially for the explanation of the abreviations...when I crochet I spend most of my time searching on the internet what they mean.

Every so often I go on ravelry and search for it. Now I have to see if I have the right yarn for it! *hugs*

I made it today! I'm wearing it right now. I've never made a slouchy hat before, so I wasn't sure if it was supposed to be this long. I came and looked at your pictures and I think I got it right! Thank you for posting the pattern. Cheesy

Could anyone who has made this help me out a little??

There seems to be something.... wrong with my hat!

I'm on the orange stripe (and its the last one you increase on) and it seems to be really... tiny! I mean, it's 80 stitches and all, but it looks like it would barely fit on the back of my head, yet alone the thought that it STAYS at 80 and then later I have to decrease and then its supposed to fit... I just don't want to keep going and be wrong, as it'd be a lot of time wasted. Anyways, any insight at all would be totally appreciated!
