I finished my first crochet hat tonight. It's from the Crochet Me magazine. ^.^ I love it, although I think it may be a little short.. I want it to go over my ears.. Can you block crochet? Anyway.. here is it. ^^

I don't know if you can block crochet... I would assume as long as it was made from a natural fiber like wool then you should be able to...
 
And nice Hat, love the colors.

That had is absolutely adorable! I love it! Sadly, I don't know the answer to your question because I don't know how to crochet. :-(

Very pretty hat!  Are you asking about blocking to make the hat longer?  You can always join on to the bottom of the hat and crochet more length to it.  Actually that's what I normally do to my hats just to give them a more finished look, and you can add a pretty ruffled edge that way.

Your hat is lovely! As suggested previously adding more rows can increase the length and as to your blocking question YES YOU CAN!  Most of the time it takes you wetting the completed project and pinning it into shape.  Handwashing helps keep it that way.  If it is made from a natural fiber it works even better!

That hat is lovely.  What kind of yarn did you use?  I'd love to make one just like it.

The yarn is from Jo Ann Fabrics. It's called Angel Hair. ^^ They have a lot of different colors too.
