Hat on the Brain

I seem to have hats on the brain lately, and I'm not sure why, considering that I rarely wear them. I think they bug me and give me headaches, but I've been looking at a bunch of them on etsy anyway. I gave in a bought a pattern the other day to give me something to do and to feed my urge.

The first one I made out of some yarn that I just had on hand and I it ended up too tight. I think I crochet rather tightly, and perhaps that was the problem. So I bought a skein of the yarn that was recommended for the pattern and whipped up another one Wednesday night. I used one size larger hook than it called for too. This is better.

So this is the finished product. I'm not sure if I'll really wear it or not, but it doesn't look too bad.
