flopster hat

Ta da!

Not at all my pattern, but a variation on patterns found here & here. Being only the second hat I've crocheted, I expected it to be a complete headache (get it? hats... headaches... both relating to the head...) but it was a quick & mostly smooth-sailing project.

I used Lion Brand Wool-Ease Worsted Weight in Denim. I actually made the hat twice, the first with a size J hook. It came out just a tad smaller than I wanted so I tried it again with a size K hook and things worked out nicely. I think I'll make a matching scarf using some sort of lacy, fancy pants type stitch instead of my standard, boring, trusty double crochet. This hat used a popcorn stitch at times which, for some reason, I found enormously gratifying to crochet.
