I'm like that in everything I do.  If I really like it, I usually develop a passion for it and just go all out early.  I push myself (sometimes way too hard too fast) because I feel I will get it if I really want it.

And another hat should be dumped here very soon.  Still tinkering with a few designs...

Lol, I'm working on getting more yarn to make duplicates.  I went to an event in Atlanta, and they thought I should have a booth if I return.

But, I do have a new project, and I think this will be the most difficult one yet.  Aside from being geeky and loving videogames, I am also a big techno/electronoma/house fan.  I especially love Daft Punk, and I'm working on a beanie based off this guy's helmet.


This will take a while, and I am working on it piece by piece.  Hopefully I figure this one out!

Oh wow, thanks everyone for the comments!  I'm glad that you guys like them!

@CDEeeek:  It's funny you say that.  I truly think the Zim hat was maybe one of the easier crafts I did.  I also think I didn't do anything someone else can't do.  Just takes a bit of thinking and willing to figure some things out, like formulating the shapes.  I think the Megaman hat proves it, because I've seen BunnieBard do a hat extremely close to this one way before me, Tongue.  I just wanted to demysitfy the concept instead of waiting for her to restock hehe.  Since she wasn't revealing the pattern (which I understand, because she sells that on her online store), I had the honors of coming up with a pattern for it like she did...

@thania:  I can help with learning how to make a hat if you want.  I learned how to work in the round my second day, and the rest was history.  I learned the circle chain, which I completely hate, and then I learned the magic circle a day later.  Now I magic circle all beanies. 

@Oath Keeper:  Steal them, but beware, you are stealing them from someone who is a big Mega Man fan lol.  Seriously, if you did, it'd just give me a reason to try and recreate them faster :3

@spaz2phreak:  I feel the same way about knitting.  I suck at it, crocheting seems SO much easier.

@n3k0cupc4k3:  Nice 1337!  From what I've noticed, this works for me with all my beanies, but I know there are multiple ways to do these.

All my beanies come from basic concepts, with an exception of a couple of unthemed hats:

If it's HDC or higher:

after your first round, you increase in each stitch (x2 your stitches), and then add a single stitch in between each increase in each following round, so if you'd did a pattern to make a HDC basic beanie you do this...

My pattern:

MC 10 HDC (round one, 10 st)
HDC inc (2 HDCs in 1 st) in every stitch, which should be 2 in every stitch, which equals 20 in round 2
then [1 HDC in the first st, 2 HDCs in the next st].  Repeat in brackets all the way around, which should equal 30
then [1 HDC in the first st, 1 HDC in the next st, 2 HDCs in the next stitch]  Repeat til you get 40 stitches.
then [1 HDC, 1 HDC, 1 HDC, 2 HDCs] Repeat til you get to 50.
then [1 HDC, 1 HDC, 1 HDC, 1 HDC, 2 HDCs] Repeat til you reach 60.
then 1 HDC in every stitch for each round after that.

then with SC hats, I'd follow a similar increase pattern, except once I reach a round with at least 40 stitches in it, I'd do a round with just 1 sc in each st before I'd do the next increase, and since I normally do sc hats in 8s, I'd do 8, 16, 24, 32, 40, 40, 48, 48, 56, 56, 64.....

Those are what works for me, but I'm sure there are many others.

@All who love a man that crochets:  Awwww <3

I've only been doing this crochet thing for a little more than 2 months, but I pick up fast.  I'm working on patterns and themed things now.  Everything I post up here was done with no patterns, just winging it.  I hope you guys like them!

Captain America

I couldn't decide to put wings on it or not, but I might redo the whole design later in a earflap type design.

Gir from Invader Zim

First themed hat I've made.  I learned from this how to make bigger and better earflaps and tassels.

And these next two, I did completely freehand, but I thank BunnieBard for making me want to be as accurate as possible, for I too am somewhat nerdy AND a HUGE Mega Man fanatic.

Classic Mega Man

This took a week and a half to figure out how to do right.  As BunnieBard's, I figured out the raised light blue parts, the concave ear things (there is red indented inside them).  Here's a pic of that too.

And then Proto Man (my favorite Mega Man character)

After doing the Mega Man helmet, this one seemed retardedly easy.  The center white part gave me a few hours of trouble, making it pointed and making it long enough were hard.  But trial and error finally made it work.

Again, shoutouts to BunnieBard.  Wouldn't have known of this site without seeing her works.

Hope you all Enjoy!
