I thought I wouldn't make hats.  I've got hats, so why another one?  But actually my winter hats are very warm and right now I need something lighter.  So I decided to go and make one.  A simple one.

I didn't like any of the designs I found.  Well, I did, but not for my current purposes.  In the end I wrote my own pattern, digged out the last of my velvety Chenille yarn, and came up with this:

I love it!  It resulted much better than expected, and besided its shape lends itself to a lot of different ways to wear it, which is really cool.  For instance, I've just realised that when it pours with rain and your hair is so long that it gets damp forever and keeps your back wet long after you're indoors, the solution is a snood.  So that's how I've used it today.  It looks good in many positions.  So much so, I am thinking of making more, in other colours.

It looks very versatile!  The color is lovely as well---and what a nice way to use up yarn--a project for yourself!
