Dark Faery Slouch Hat

I had a dream about this hat. I woke up and then had to make it. It is pretty much the only thing I remember about the dream besides lots of trees lol. What do you think? This pattern is now available in my Etsy shop for $3.

(It is hard to take a picture of the side of your head in a bathroom mirror LOL)


Here it is with it worn up on the forehead



for some reason this hat reminds me of a witch hat. Someone else also told me it reminds them of the Lord of the Rings. Now I think of Gandalf when I look at it haha. I have been watching the movies a lot lately. Maybe it was in my subconscious or something hehe.



Here it is worn off the back of the head a little bit so it is slouchy

This is a question about beanies...Do you have any good lightweight beanie designs for men...I thank you for your time and by the way....AWESOME hats and dolls, I luv them all....

Ana Luisa: Thanks :)

msvicegrip: Thanks :) Yep. The Mario Mushroom hat and the NIN hat are pretty lightweight. You can use simply soft yarn or cotton yarn if you want to make it lighter :)

Dear April,

You were right in pulling your patterns...I've crochet for just over 30 yrs and seen a lot of crocheters..you are extremely talented.
I wish you well, a new fan (^_~)
