Cute.......... The hat looks like it wants an edging or border of some sort.

I do agree with Liliesinmycereal that a border might be cute....maybe a little scalloped one.  I honestly do think it is remarkably cute hat.  I love the bright colors and granny squares are cute to begin with.  I think you did a great job.  I might even have to try it myself.  I still wear my first knitting project (a super bright rainbow hat that's big enough to stuff my hair under).  So...keep up the good work and wear that hat proudly.


I am interested in personal swaps...and kittens...and rocks.  Weird huh?

I think it looks great!  I love granny squares and get a billion compliments on a tank I made that is basically two huge squares sewn together.
Since you want us to be BRUTAL, though, I agree with the other suggestion...  A border of single crochet or even just slip stitch along the bottom would really pull it together, if you didn't want to undertake the scalloped sort of edging yet.  Wink

I love the color combinations! Definitely want to make a granny square afghan with these colors! What a fantastic achievement for your first attempt at crocheting!

I echo the sentiments of those before me: a border of some sort will give it a polished look! =)

I think it rocks!!!! I agree with the finishing with an edge of some sort. I want to know though, how you got it to all come together on the top??? Wicked cool.

Quite fantastic!  I like the bright, multi colors and I think you did a fine job on your first project.  When I started my first project it was a shawl and I ripped it out several times before it was right.  It was just plain single crochet and I was never satisfied with it so I ripped it out and started over.  I learned that I actually like ripping my own projects apart when they're not up to my qualifications.  But, as I said, the hat is very cute.

thanks everyone! and i deff. see what yall mean about the border, i might have to add one to my next hat. i would add it to the first one, but i already gave it to a friend. and at the top all i did was stitch through them and then pull the yarn so it gathered.
