Saw a Pattern...Made a Hat

When I should have been working this morning, I made a hat!

I just couldn't pass up this hat.  I dug through my worsted stash and found a partially used skein of Loops and Thread Ombre.  I didn't know that the yarn would stripe, I thought it was variegated.  I was very pleasantly surprised to see that the yarn made diagonal stripes with this crochet pattern:

It took a few hours, but I stitched away on this hat, with an I hook and this worsted acryllic.  The band is single crochet.  Sometimes I will knit a ribbed band on a crocheted hat because I like the stretchy-ness of ribbing.  But this band really pulls the hat in to make it more slouchy.

The pattern is an alternate V-stitch.  The size of the hook and the weight of the yarn makes a really squishy fabric.  When I saw the pattern here, I thought it was a chunky weight.  But it is indeed worsted and so worth a few hours in a morning!  I named the hat on Ravelry, "Saw a Pattern Made a Hat."  If we're not friends on Rav...we should be!  Find me on Ravelry as Crochetlu.
