Tapestry Crochet Hat

Done.

It would have turned out better had I been able to maintain a consistent gauge, but it's functional.

It does look great-I think I saw it on Raverly this AM.

Wow, it's gorgeous!

I like it better than your Canadian hat. I think it turned out awesome! Is the yarn a cotton? Could you gently iron the brim to make it not as wavy?

If you kept notes on this pattern, I suggest you submit it to IK Crochet. I bet they would publish this.

Thanks!

Yes, it is cotton. It's Elann Lara

I don't think ironing the brim would help, since it's a circumference/radius issue, and my head stretching the inner circumference doesn't help at all.

I don't think IK Crochet or other publication that pay for patterns would be interested, since I've shown photos on my blog... they like them to be secret until they've come out. (I'm not good with secrecy.) Plus I don't think Elann sells the multicoloured Lara any more either.

Fabulous!!! Love the colors, love the pattern, an all-around great hat! Now I need to learn to crochet...

It's wonderful! You make great hats. :) Funny - I bought a crocheted raffia hat today & found myself contemplating copying the pattern into my own creation...

Hi - it's me again. I was tagged with a fun meme, and am now tagging you - stop by my blog for details. It's all about events that happened on your birthday. It's fun!

Seeing your FOs is always inspiring to me. My own crochet skills are still rudimentary, but things like brimmed hats are just not great knit items.

functional is the most important thing! :-)

What a NICE tapestry crochet hat. I'm just learning and haven't ventured into hat making, but yours is awesome!

Thanks for the blog link!

Functional? What do you mean it's functional? It's beautiful!
It might be functional, too.

This is a great example of a tapestry crochet hat. Like your colors too. You might like to check out the Flickr Tapestry crochet group and be inspired to make another. Follow this link:
