Hello everyone!

This hat kind of happened by accident - I was at Michael's shopping for yarn to crochet myself a new winter hat, and came across this beautiful burgundy yarn with little gold flecks in the bargain bin for $2.00! I couldn't not buy it, so I used it to crochet myself a new hat for fall instead! (Winter hat will still be in the works soon too!)



I used the Pretty Puff Slouchy Hat pattern: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=195823.0

I altered the pattern a bit though. I used this pattern once before, but the hat turned out way too tight in the end. I added two extra increase rows at the back of the hat, and did one less decrease row at the front of the hat. I also substituted a thick ribbed band at the front of the hat. (For anyone wondering, I did a bunch of rows of front post/back post double crochet. I alternated fp/bp every two stitches to make larger ribbing.)


This is the left side with the bow Smiley


This is the right side


This is the back


Here it is flat


Detail shot of the different stitches in the hat, and you can see the little gold flecks more here


Extra close up of the yarn Smiley

Thanks for looking!

I love it - especially the bow.  Someone needs to teach me how to crochet well enough to make hats and amazing projects like this one.  Sad

But it's so cute - thanks for sharing!!

Thanks! I love the bow too. When I first started making hats I went to YouTube and searched tutorials on there.. there are some great ones that show a close-up of the entire process so you can get the stitches/etc right Smiley I found that much easier than reading written instructions when I first started out!
