I HEART Tunisian Crochet.  It is really easy and makes a really nice fabric.  I finally perfected my tunisian hat and i am really happy with the results so I had to share with everyone.  I based it off of my thick and warm hat with a few adjustments for tunisian.
Tan and Green Hat made with TLC Cara Mia



it ended up being a little short so i added a few rows of single crochet to the edge to make it longer and i like the result.  I used TLC CaraMia.

Those are really pretty! When I tried tunisian (sp?) stitch, it did'nt look nearly as pretty, and I lost the long hook used for it, so I can't practice. Darn. But those look really pretty.Smiley I like the pink one.Cheesy

I did it vertically.  basically i started with a row of 30 stitchs (which is about 8-9 inches) and just kept going untill it fit around my head then seamed up the back.  to make it rounded i left one stitch unworked at the end of each row, so i did a row of 30, then 29, then 28 then 27 and so on until i had 12 'short' rows then i did a full row of 30, picking up the unworked stitches.

Thanks!  Actually, for the Pink one i used a normal crochet hook because all the stitches fit on it since i do it vertically, there are only 30 stitches, i just put a rubber band on the end to keep them from sliding off.


oh yeah, i used the tunisian simple stitch.  i can make a better pattern if anyone wants it.

Awesome!  I've never thought of doing a hat vertically/in rows! I always do rounds.  That has an amazing look. 
I've also been eyeing tunisian b/c it's supposed to be awesome for garments... but haven't made the dive yet.
Your work is AWESOME and super-inspiring Smiley
Thanks for sharing...

Here's the pattern.  Let me know if i confuse anyone or if there are any mistakes.

Materials: Size J Afghan hook. Note: if you do not have a afghan hook, this project can be worked using a normal crochet hook by putting a rubber band on the end of your hook to keep the stitches from sliding off.
Worsted weight yarn (Ill get back to you on how much)
Yarn needle
Tape measure
Size:    Fits adult womens head.  See variations at the bottom for tips on making the hat bigger/smaller
Gague:   not important as long as the first row is 8 inches (for adult size)
Notes:   Hat is worked with vertical rows. 

Abbreviations:  BAS basic afghan stitch

Chain 31
Row 1:  Starting in the 2nd ch from hook, work a row of BAS (Forward: draw up a loop in each st across Back: yo draw through1 lp, *yarn over, draw through 2 lps repeat from * across). (31 sts)
Row 2:  work a row of BAS but leave the last stitch unworked. (30sts)
Row 3:  work a row of BAS but leave the last stitch unworked. (29sts)
Row 4:  work a row of BAS but leave the last stitch unworked. (28sts)
Row 5:  work a row of BAS but leave the last stitch unworked. (27sts)
Row 6:  work a row of BAS but leave the last stitch unworked. (26sts)
Row 7:  work a row of BAS but leave the last stitch unworked. (25sts)
Row 8:  work a row of BAS but leave the last stitch unworked. (24sts)
Row 9:  work a row of BAS but leave the last stitch unworked. (23sts)
Row 10:  work a row of BAS but leave the last stitch unworked. (22sts)
Row 11:  work a row of BAS but leave the last stitch unworked. (21sts)
Row 12:  work a row of BAS but leave the last stitch unworked. (20sts)
Row 13:  work a row of BAS but leave the last stitch unworked. (19sts)
Row 14: Forward: work till end of row13(19sts) then drop down to row 12 and draw up a loop in the unworked stitch, drop down to row 11 and draw up a loop in the unworked st, drop down to row 10 and draw up a loop in the unworked sts.  Continue until you draw up loop in all unworked stitches (31 loops on hook)  Back: yo draw through 1 lp, yo draw through 2 loops across.(31 sts)
Repeat rows 2-14 5 times or until hat fits around head.  You can stop on any row as long as you finish with a full row of 31 as in row 14. 
Finishing:  whipstitch the two short sides together and then drawstring the top to close.
Oops:  if your hat is too short then join yarn onto brim of hat by the seam and work sc in the round until it is long enough. 

Variations

Different sizes:  this pattern can very easily be adjusted for any size head.  Measure their head or an existing hat from top to forehead and make however many sts to make your first row that length.  Fyi: do not measure the chain, it will be longer than your first row.  Then just make it until it fits around the head.
   
Stripes: to work stripes, do not carry yarn across more than 3 sts.  If you alternate colors, it will be a lot easier to have separate balls for each stripe. I would recommend only doing stripes on the lower part of the hat because it gets weird if you continue into the decreasing part.
For help coming up with striping patterns, I use this random stripe generator.
   
Pictures:  it is very easy to work a picture into this hat.  As long as the chart you are working from is no longer than your shortest row. Dont carry colors more than 3 sts!!!

Awesome pattern. I wasn't quite sure what you meant with the description alone, but the pattern clarified it. I ended up making a hat thats a bit too big for my head, so I'll probably donate it- but it did turn out (just too big)

I just finished this hat for my son.  I loved making it, and it turned out really cute.  Sorry that I don't have any pictures.  I'm not very savvy posting pics.  I used a green wool that I love.  I had to increase the beginning chain to 51 and did segments of 16 rows instead of 14.  My son has a big head.  He likes it pulled down, but it is just the right length to fold up. 

Awesome pattern thanks
