I love knitting and crocheting hats for my family- they are fast and fun and most importantly everyone wears them!  Nothing worse that spending hours on something that no one wears, drives me batty!  I made Little sis a hat when she was a baby that I loved and tried to find a bigger size, it was a simple crocheted shells design.  I came across this (of course I can't find it now- but I'll update it when I do) one and REALLY liked how it integrated the shell pattern on the top of the hat.  That's one of my beefs with crocheted hat patterns most start out with a sc circle until it's big enough and THEN start the pattern.  I'm not overly thrilled with the looks of that so when I find a pattern that continues a pattern through the crown I tend to make multiples.  I made a pretty blue one for my step-mothers' birthday (no picture =( though)  So I used it as the start and then I added the brim from THIS hat and I LOVE it!  It was perfect for the long car drive.

LOVE the clip on flower

Winter hats go SO well with tank tops! =)
