That hat is amazing, and looks completely adorable on you too Smiley  Thanks so much for sharing the pattern!  This one is definitely going on my list.

   Okay, so i've finished the hat but it came out a little big so I have a little editing to do before I can post pics.  Undecided

 I too had some trouble starting the beginning of the hat... it was frustrating! I eventually got it and finished it in just a few hours though so i'm very happy. I used yarn that was a little too chunky so i'm not positive that i'll keep it. I may do it in Caron Simply Soft... that might work a little better and give it more flow or flexibility? My yarns too thick.

   Thanks, its a great pattern and i'm sure i'll be making more in various colors. Now all I have left to do is make it so that mine fits and looks good. Also everyone else's looks amazing as well. Awesome work peoples!!!

Okay so I just made this hat, and I don't know what's wrong with me, but it definitely comes to a peak at the top, and it looks ridiculous.  I think I crocheted too tightly at the beginning.  I dunno, it just. . .  doesn't look right.  I'm terribly disappointed that I messed it up, cuz this hat is adorable.  Sad

This happened to me too Sad I think i may have crocheted too tightly as well. The hat is very adorable, I'm going to try again and see what happens Cheesy

I made one of these for my brothers girlfriend for Christmas, I think I made the crown a little too big though, so I had to make the band wider and make some decreases, but I think it turned out cute, hopefully she will like it.
It's 2 strands of acrylic held together, a bright purple and a REALLY pale pink, my brother picked to use them together instead of one or the other (and then called her starting the conversation with "you don't have a big head do you?" not even a hello first.)

on me.  please excuse my dark eye circles (it had been a long weekend of little sleep and lots of househunting but we did find one and make an offer, so *fingers crossed*)

oh, your hat is wonderful.

and your brother is, erm, charming. too bad he isn't single  Roll Eyes.

Yea, he's 20, they're impossible to train at that age.  Though, they have been together for like 2 years and are best friends, and treat eachother almost like siblings do, with the banter and such, they are just that comfortable with one another.  I guess it's hard to explain unless you have been in a relationship like that.

OH and Thanks!  I just hope it fits her, I have a tiny head, so I am hoping it will fit her "normal sized head" much better, it is actually much bigger on me than it looks in the picture.

I made this for my first hat.  I ended up adding a couple extra rows of half double crochet, because my hat was a bit loose for my head.  Thanks for the pattern!  I want to go make another hat now!  These will make great gifts.

I made one too!
But, the wonderful puffs didn't end up... wonderful on  mine. Seriously, there are puffs, but they are nowhere near a symmetrical as yours. Embarrassed

I love the way you guys are adding the double crochet at the end...i should have done that to my hat because it may fit better that way

Ok I was trying this hat last night, my first attempt at following a non-Japanese and non-amigurumi crochet pattern and thus trying to remember what all the abbreviations mean etc.

I just have a question about the start, where you go from the little tail to starting to work in the round:

Where is says "In last chain, do 4 sc.", what does that mean?  Do you do a chain of 4 stitches or do you do 4 single crochet stitches in that one last chain?  I can't work out how they'd all fit if the latter was the case. Embarrassed  I took it as making a chain of 4 stitches up, if you get me, and then according to the nest line of the pattern, did 2 another chain and the did 2 single crochet stitches in each of those 4 chains, and did a slip stitch to join it so it forms the first circle of the hat - is that on the right track?

I'm sorry if that's a very basic question, but I have looked at books and websites etc. on working in the round and can't quite make sense of it in terms of this pattern with the 2 sc in the chains, so thanks if anyone can help me!

I'm very into Britney Spears' early work, before she sold out, so mostly her, um, finger painting and macaroni art.
