hey all, this is my first foray into a crochet-knit combo hat, but since it's 90% crochet, i'm going to post it here instead of over there.

this is the bonita hat from ravelry, i used one skein of vanna's choice in autumn print, and i did a couple of pattern modifications.



i did one round smaller and shorter than the pattern indicated, and i followed other raveler's pattern corrections (there are a few minor errata). also, instead of doing the crochet band, i picked up 80 stitches around the edge (should do 84 next time) and did knit 2, purl 2 ribbing.



i'd love to show you a picture of it on, but it's exceedingly hard to take a picture of the back of your own head!

thanks for looking, c&c welcome!

I don't have the slightest clue how to knit, and your last picture makes me feel very intimidated.
Beautiful finished product, though!
