Hey there!
Well, my problem is i'm crocheting a hat for my brother in single crochets, but he wants the letter T incorporated somewhere on the front.  I'm having the hardest time getting this figured out without it looking awkward or just bad.  I've read about using cross stitch, but I just don't know how good it will look.  I was wondering if anyone new of a method that would work for this in the round.  

Thanks so much!!

I've been a shoeless cobbler for as long as i remember and i'm always having trouble staying put.

You could always embroider it. If you don't know how, the easiest way is to crochet-embroider, which is just doing a bunch of slip stitches on top of the finished project.

I don't know how well this will show up, but it might work if you crochet in only the back loops where you want the letter to be, so the stitches are sortof raised.  Take a look at how to do ribbing in crochet and imagine the letter raised instead of just straight ribbing, like here:

It might be easiest to go with FallenEssence's idea though, of surface crocheting.  Here's a good tutorial for it:

Good luck, and post a pic when you finish!
