I like that brimmed hat, alwaysinmyroom.  What yarn did you use for that? I made a couple more hats. I posted the bigger pics and inspiration in the completed projects: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=420355.0
25  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Fedora for Gia on: February 15, 2013 09:48:21 AM
My friend wondered if I could design a hat for her little girl, Gia. Gia loves sea life and one of her favorite toys is a shark plushy.  Playing with sharks brought fedoras to mind. After some trial and error, and lots of frogging, here's what I came up with:

Instead of starting with a ring, I started with a foundation strip of half double crochet stitches, and increased from there. The top is made of half double crochet stitches, the brim in single crochet, and the "ribbon" is made of a long strand of foundation half double crochet stitches.

Because it's getting warmer, I decided to recreate this look in raffia. The "ribbon" is still in worsted weight acrylic and the brim has more rounds to create more shade. I had to use a smaller size hook for this, but it's built from the same concept.

Now, that is how you sculpt with yarn! Perfect execution.
27  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Fingerless Gloves on: February 13, 2013 01:46:07 PM

My hands get so cold, but I need my fingertips to text, crochet, etc. So I got these $1 knit gloves, and clipped the finger tips off.  Instant fuzz! To stop it from fraying and unraveling, I took some very thin blue cotton thread and used a 1.8 mm hook to crochet some edging. 
What do you think?
28  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Jute Basket on: February 05, 2013 01:40:56 PM

Jute comes in colors other than brown or green!! I didn't realize this until I came across it on a florist site. The drawback: a spool of 100 yards is twice the price of the regular jute found at the hardware store, and that excludes the shipping.  Well, after I splurged on a spool of navy blue, I crocheted a small basket to showcase this beautiful agavoides and some sedum. I didn't put any soil in there.  The succulents will last a very long time.

I worked in a spiral with single crochet stitches and an F-hook.  I wrapped the last round of half-double crochet stitches around a wire ring that I made from 19 gauge wire. The hanger is also made from the same gauge wire. The hook is an ornament hook.
