I will be delivering it to him on Saturday when we go to visit.
Pattern Used: Mini Brim Hat by Dianna Judge from Artsy Daisy Crochet
I used this pattern because it calls for chunky yarn and that seems to me, to make it hold a shape better. So the crown stays more rounded like a bowler hat. I used 2 strands held together through out as I don’t really like using chunky yarn. Besides that I had the colors I wanted to use in my stash. 🙂 Since I was making this for a man, I added one increasing round to the crown. I did 18 rounds of the black colors, then 2 rounds with the variegates for the “hat band” 2 more rows of the black colors then on to the brim. The body of the hat was suppose to have 25 rounds before starting the brim. I wanted it a bit shorter to make it more like a bowler.
