Grey Wizard Hat

This was inspired by Gandalf's hat in The Lord of the Rings. Our whole family has an obsession with those movies (and books). My daughter was so excited when I told her I was going to make the hat. Now that the hat is done I think my husband has laid claim to it haha. I had a little trouble with the brim. I'll admit I just got lazy towards the end because the whole thing is single crochet and I just wanted to be done with it lol. I finished it and the brim bugged me so bad I ripped it out and re did it. Now I'm much happier with it ;D LOL lesson learned just do it right the 1st time so you don't end up with double the work later ;)
If you can't see the pictures right click on them and select view image.

If anyone is interested I have the pattern for sale in my Etsy Shop for $3

Does the end just lay like that? It's a very awesome design! If I had someone into LOTR I would make it for them.

The new blog revamp looks awesome! Can't wait to share with you my versions of the rainbow hat with the star at the end. I had coworker who was expecting and I made them for her.
