Here are a bunch of my first hats, Two are for me and two went to my brother and his girlfriend as gifts. The fifth one went to my partner in a swap.  Smiley

My favorite of the bunch. I just love the pattern, the colors of the yarn and the way the colors changed.  Made with bernat mosiac yarn and the divine hat pattern found here http://www.rheatheylia.com/index.php?page=patterns&id=10

This is a 50/50 cotton/linen light grey yarn that I used to make a summer bucket style hat. I added cream ribbon and tied it in a bow and scalloped the brim. I used several patterns to put together this hat.

This is the hat I made for my brother. He wanted a "guy" hat  Cool so I thought black beanie with a few white stripes.

Here is the hat I made for my brothers girlfriend. She likes girly things so I thought a pink, purple and light blue striped hat would be perfect.  Wink I had less blue then the other colors so I made those stripes thinner which I think worked out well. I added a pink and blue double strand edging to the bottom to finish it off.

The hat I made for my partner in the dresden files swap. A dark grey with light grey flecks using a pattern found in a book that I can't remember the name of.  Tongue  Huh I added the red and grey circle applique to the one side to add some color. It's a nice fall/spring hat since it is a more open pattern with a sort of scalloped design which left spaces between the clusters.

What do you think?

Thanks, yeah even though it as an acrylic yarn it sorta feels like wool and the colors and color changes were just perfect for that pattern. I can't wait till it gets cold enough to start wearing it!

Thanks everyone Smiley I love the mosiac yarns too kuddlekubs. I heard that they are prone to breaking but I never had that problem and it has a better feel then cheap acrylics do. The new colors, which includes the one I used are really great. Much more colorful then the first ones.
