Finished another hat for my hat-obsessed daughter. I didn't even get this one blocked since she snagged it as soon as the ends were woven in so she could wear it today.

Pattern is Capucine on Ravelry: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/capucine

She wanted it made without the tassel in the back. Good thing too since I used every last bit of yarn to make the huge tassels she wanted for the front.

Pictures are a little dark:

I made this hat recently too! Couldn't figure out the tassels though...
Anyway, I absolutely love the colors in yours! It's fantastic Smiley

I post things like this in my blog too!

Thanks! It's the first time I've ever used Noro yarn. I can't say it's my favorite yarn but the colors are fabulous.

I'd like to say I was smart enough to figure out the tassels on my own but I wasn't. If you still want to add tassels to yours, I used this tutorial: http://www.nezumiworld.com/crochet_057.htm

So easy. After I finished the tassel I used a crochet hook to pull one end of the top tied yarn through the edge of the hat, tied a knot with the other end to secure it and weaved in the ends. Not sure if that's the proper way to do it but it came out looking nice and neat anyway.

This hat is gorgeous! What a fresh and new take on all the winter hats or beanies. Paired with a tasseled scarf or cowl, this would be a great gift! The yarn is gorgeous as well. Wisting!

Its mad, I love it. The tassels make a huge difference.

Look twice, buy once. Nooooo
Look twice, decide I can make one instead.
