All last winter I really wanted a hat to go with my new coat. My husband was not happy with any of the hats I already owned because they did not match my awesome red shoes that I wear almost all winter long, so I decided to make myself a nice red hat.
Pattern: City Girl
Hook Size: Too big :(
I really like this pattern, especially the pattern that the post double crochet stitches create.
I think I learned a valuable lesson about checking gauge for crochet projects. I have never checked gauge for a crochet project, but I often do with knitting projects. This hat works well if I slouch a lot of the hat to the back of my head, but as you can see, the hat is actually big enough to cover my entire head! It's huge! Oh well, I will probably still wear it this winter :)
