Wow...these are your patterns?  They are awesome!  I would charge around $20 for these...like everyone else has said...then mark up if made with specialty yarns...I'd love a pattern for these if you're willing to share...   My boss loves these and what a better way to brown nose the boss than by making a hat for her "just cuz"  tehehehe

I made my husband a beanie he's been buggin me for for weeks...fortunately it stays cold here for long winters!  I used double stranded cotton yarn so it'll be super warm and oh so soft!  He even wore it to bed!  I think he likes it...

A co-worker of mine said she wanted a black beanie with hot pink somewhere in it...so I got to do whatever I wanted with it!  And here it is what I came up with...

Comments and cc's welcome!

Any pattern yet?  I know everyone was buggin you for it...like i was...but just wondering if you had a chance to get around to it yet.  All I really need is a tut for the face pieces....I have a basic beanie down, unless there are special instructions for these...

I loved this hat from the moment I saw it...and I tried to make it according to a pattern by a poster by the name of dexterchikk (thank you so much btw!  Smiley  ), but I wasn't happy with it.  I think I got it right, but it just didn't look all that great on me...

so, I adjusted the pattern to make it more my style I guess with some wonderful cotton yarn I had been dying to use, but hadn't had any ideas for it...

These are made of acrylic yarn. Red Heart Super Saver to be exact. I would love to make them out of cotton. BUT i live in a one wal*mart town and we have no yarn shops. If these sale then I'm going to invest in cotton yarn to do the next batch in.

I have made a lot of potholders with acrylic yarn and i use a gas stove. Acrylic yarn will melt and drip if it catches on fire so it is not the safest. But taking something out of the oven and to the table doesn't melt the ones i have. If you can get your paws on cotton/wool that would be best i think but acrylic used safely and away from open flame should be ok.

Thanks so much for responding...I think I will take this into consideration.

Just to give more information on how these came out...with form fitting hats, I usually do 6-8 rows of increases depending on how big the head of person wearing it is.  Then I make it long enough to cover ears or wherever they want it to hit on thier head.  then the earflaps I crochet directly onto the hat after trying it on and making sure they'll hit the ears.  the earflaps are simply rectangles that decrease all the way down til they are pointed.  single crochet around the even the bottom of hat, and bam!

for the ties, just pull 3 strands of yarn through the single crochet at the bottom of earflaps, and braid till the bottom...or you can use 6 or 9 strands for bigger thicker braids....hope this helps.

This is a really old thread, but I was going through them and found this...I have a pattern for a brimmed hat, but the brim is not as stiff and awesome as this one...could anyone figure out how this brim works so well?
