Introduction

As someone who has been crocheting a quite a long time, but still kind of sucks, I'm an avid consumer of hat patterns. Why? Because it doesn't matter if you skip a stitch or put one treble too many in. It doesn't notice as much as say, gaining almost an inch on your scarf pattern. Yep- I did that. On the scarf that mismatches this hat (same wool, different pattern).

Anyway, this is the first pattern I've ever done. I got the inspiration from a 'net pattern somewhere, but since I clear my history a lot- I can't find it. This is MY take on someone else's pattern, so don't try and sue me and say it's not 100% original- I know!

Written in ENGLISH (UK) abbreviations!

Materials List

Things I used:
* Patons "Whisper" (25% mohair, 75% acrylic) yarn in shade 'Bracken'- roughly a ball and a bit (50g balls)
* Size 6 hook (J to those of you in Obamamerica)
* Stitch marker (just to know where the round began
* Yarn needle for sewing ends in

* A supply of tea and snacks :D

Finished Size

Works up to about a 22" head circumference. You can change this by repeating rows 5-9 until it covers your ears. Also, make less of said rows if you're going for teeny wee sizes.

Gauge

Um, I don't know... I didn't measure. I do crochet quite tight though.

If you can work it out from the pic, great, if not, please message me, and I'll get my crochet genius mother to help out.
