I gave this challenge quite a bit of thought.  I went in a few other directions before settling on this one.  The mitten needed more work, and the vest was, well, not an accessory... so I went with the age-old advice: go with what you know!

What does mio know?  Blankets and hats.  As blankets are also not accessories, that left hats!

Now, I've already made lots of crochet-on-the-double hats, where the short rows make up the shaping at the top of the hat.  This time I wanted to do something different, and put the short-row shaping at the sides.

Then it was just a matter of adding a cute scalloped edge, and here we have a kind of retro, 20's kind of hat:



This angle shows where the wedges meet, which is my favourite angle on this hat.  If it was big enough to fit me (which was the plan, but oh well), I'd probably wear this with this side pointing forward.  But it does look neat from a lot of angles!

And, since this IS crochet-on-the-double we're talking about, this hat is reversible!



I used Bernat Satin, about half a ball each in "Wine Mist Heather" (brown) and "Cameo" (pink), and a 6mm double-ended hook.  It ended up being about 20" around and about 6.5" tall.

It really looks like a vintage hat from the flapper era !

Lovely colors and using the short rows for shaping makes the pattern very interesting to see from all angles!

The scalloping adds a nice feminine touch without distracting from the design...perhaps are some point you will make this pattern available.. Cheesy

this is fantastic!  I need to a) find a double ended hook and b) find a book that tells me how to crochet on the double!
