I did have a little trouble with the pictures. Tried different lighting and different background, and they just didn't seem to be cooperating, but I'll share the best ones on here. :-)
Blue Ruffle Hat with Pompom
The light blue yarn used in this hat is Red Heart yarn, the really soft kind. I don't have the label so can't remember what it is called. The dark yarn is "I Love This Yarn" in royal blue. The pompom is made from the light blue yarn.
The main color is royal blue. The stitch is similar to the granny stitch but a little different. I put two double crochet in every other stitch. On the following rows, I alternated by putting the two double crochet in each space.
For the ruffle, I made 5 double crochet with color B (light blue) in the second stitch of every other set of two double crochet of color A (royal blue). In the third double crochet in each set of 5, I made a picot.
Here is a picture. I don't know why the bottom of the hat doesn't show in the picture, but the hat is even on the bottom.
Brown Bear Hat
This hat is fun and works up easily. The brown is more of that soft Red Heart yarn. The pink is Red Heart Super Saver baby pink. To make this hat, I followed this youtube tutorial. It took a couple of tries, but I finally figured out how to go to the next row with the stitches. Once I figured that out, it was fun and easy from there.
Brown Shell Hat with Pink Stripe
There was plenty of the nice, soft brown left, so the brown shell hat also got crocheted. One row of pink shells was added to give it a little prettying up. (Sorry the pink shows up white in the picture.)
Yellow and Gold Hats
All these bits of wonderful, soft yarn are left over from the yarn I had bought at Rag Bag, the store that is sadly closed now. Surely do miss it. But the soft yarn is available at WalMart. Just costs a little more. :-)
Gold and Yellow Striped Hat
This hat was made with just plain double crochet throughout except for the yellow stripes. The yellow stripes are done with two rows of single crochet.
Royal Prince or Princess Hat
This is another hat made with the variation of the granny stitch. The granny stitch variation was used throughout except for the crown of the hat, which is double crochet. The edging at the bottom was done with the same kind of stitch as the ruffles on the blue hat. There is a little crown on the top with a picot edging.
Yellow Shell Hats
The hat on the left in the pictures below is made with just a simple shell stitch -- two double crochet, chain one, two double crochet. The one on the right is the same, with the last row being gold instead of yellow. In the shell on the last row, instead of the chain one, I just added another double crochet, making five double crochets in each shell. In the center (third) double crochet of each shell, I made a picot. This gave the edging a pretty touch.
