Sorry everyone for not posting for so long. I am just now starting to feel better. It has been a HORRIBLE winter. Anyways, I decided to make a video. I know a lot of people look at my hats and think that they are too complicated. They really aren't.(well most of them aren't) I have looked online and I haven't found any really good videos on how to crochet a hat (that doesn't mean there aren't any good ones out there, just that I didn't find any in my search that covered everything needed) so I decided to make my own. Most of the ones I found are filmed from the side or from the front. So I made a weird rig with coffee cans, duct tape, hangers, and a pen (the Craftster way lol) so I could get the camera to record my perspective. Hopefully this will help beginners. (it's my first video so please be nice) The music in the video is "Ash Koley" My friend Ben introduced me to their music and I immediately loved them. I needed music for the video because I cover so much and there was no way I could talk fast enough to keep up with the video. If I didn't add music it would be 10 min. of silence. Not very entertaining lol. I really wanted to use their songs so I contacted them and asked permission. Ash replied and told me it was alright. (I'm still really excited I got a reply) You should check them out. They are really awesome  Grin Here is a link to the video. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EUem1dXcDRA
For those of you who already know how to make hats and read a pattern, scroll down. I posted it here. Remember, if you use it please give me credit for the design  Grin

April, I'm so glad you're feeling better. I got really sick last month. I pretty much lost 1 month of my life due to the illness.

I love the colors you chose for the hat. Beautiful.

I watched your video. It was fantastic. Great music and nails.

Thank you so much for the free pattern. It's just what I was looking for. You really are the best!   Smiley

Honestly, I can't tell you how excited I am about this pattern...I love all of your hats. Cheesy I need to set up a paypal account or something so I can get access to more of them, but I'm a chicken when it comes to spending money on the internet...

Thanks for posting the pattern!! Grin
