Tapestry Crochet Hat

I finished up the crocheting last night, all that's left is weaving in a few ends. (The red hat on the right is one I bought several years back.)

Three balls of yarn was exactly right:

(Unless C wanted a wider brim... but I think it's fine.)

Since it was nearly 11pm when I finished, I modelled the hat while wearing my sexy, sexy pajamas:

Very nice! Tapestry crochet is something I keep telling myself I should try. What yarn was it (I'm sorry if you mentioned it somewhere and I missed it!) and what pattern?

That is TOO cool!

The yarn is, um... let me grab a label. It's Estelle Young Touch Cotton DK. It's splitty as all get-out, but that actually seems to have made it perfect for tapestry crochet, since it hid the yarn being carried very well. It has something like twelve plies, where each ply is itself two-ply.

The pattern is my own. Given that I made it for an elongated head, I'm guessing it's not quite the right shape for the average person. I can give you a chart for the waves... the rest is pretty basic and/or didn't have a chart.
