Hats Always On My Head!

It's so great to have you visit my hat blog!

My goal is to showcase the potential of even the most novice crocheter to be able to stitch together the most beautiful beanies, berets, and brain-warmers they never dreamed possible!

Please share your photos so I may place them on my Flickr page and here on this blog! I'm looking forward to sharing your hats with others and I just love to see what you have created!

Version 61, Fat Hat


Basic Hat Pattern 
Version 61
Fat Hat

 I needed a hat for someone to hold some chunky dreads!
The black section is all fpdc and it makes a nice stretchy fabric. 

I'm getting pics of it on when my son arrives home.

I used Vanna’s Choice Yarn for the brown. I didn’t have enough Vanna’s Choice in Black to complete it so I used Red Heart Black. I used a size I hook.
