Your hat looks great! I want to try that one, but I already have too many other projects going. Was it quick and easy or long and painful?

hello everyone, thanks for your comments Smiley

well this hat was fun to make and easy, i think it only took me about 2 hours to make, i dont really remember because i was watching tv  Roll Eyes Cool
it wasnt complicated at all, and its a good way to practice making flaps and back post stiches(i really dont know how its called)
i used gray and that multicolor yarn  because thats what i had in my stash of softee chunky yarn. its very soft and warm.

try it out, its a cute hat, everyone likes it. Wink Smiley

It looks great! Love it! I think this hat will be my next project from the "Happy Hooker" book. My hubby is asking for a ear flap hat since I started crocheting, so after many goodies for myself I think now it's his turn!  Grin

when my hubby saw this hat he wanted one for himself, he liked the earflaps too, so im thinking of making one for him too, i have to modify the patter a little to fit him and without the shell stich. Smiley

I love how the ear flaps can be buttoned to the hat (for the days where your ears aren't quite as cold) I really like the colors you used, though I have been having a little bit of a grey clothing streak in my lately.

If you're using a digital camera (I have one and know they can be fickle with focusing) There should be a "macro" button (it usually has the icon of a flower) This setting allows the camera to focus at a much closer distance, so your picture will most likely be less blurry Smiley

Yeah, you're right, the shell stitch makes it a little bit feminine. Maybe with simpler stitches all over and with black and greys... I'll try one!
