This was inspired by Gandalf's hat in The Lord of the Rings. Our whole family has an obsession with those movies (and books). My daughter was so excited when I told her I was going to make the hat. Now that the hat is done I think my husband has laid claim to it haha. I had a little trouble with the brim. I'll admit I just got lazy towards the end because the whole thing is single crochet and I just wanted to be done with it lol. I finished it and the brim bugged me so bad I ripped it out and re did it. Now I'm much more happy with it  Grin LOL lesson learned just do it right the 1st time so you don't end up with double the work later Wink
What do you think?

You did a fantastic job!  Very Gandalphish!  I love it! 

My grandmother taught me how to crochet years ago and I am thinking of getting back into it.  My daughter (13) and my son (16) both knit and I love the portability of the yarn crafts.  I sew but ya can't take the machine with you.  lol

The hat is awesome and it looks like a lot of work! Congratulations!

If you ever feel like sharing the pattern, I would love to give it a try.

And it's true, she looks happy. You should take a picture with her doing the you-shall-not-pass pose. =o)

I don't knit my attention span won't last that long haha I admire people who do knit  Wink
I agree with you, yarn crafts are great for taking with you. Doctors appointments especially  Grin
