I took a break from my usual knitting to crochet a couple of hats. Crochet hats are a great way to use up my leftovers, since crocheting is a great way to eat up lots of yarn quickly and I can crochet a hat in just a couple of hours. I don’t crochet as much anymore, since it has a tendency to hurt my wrists, but I made an exception in this case since this color combination was just calling out for the structure that crochet can give to a hat. These are alpaca yarns, both the same brand and both found at the thrift store. A varied between working rounds of single crochet, double crochet, and half double crochet to keep the hat interesting to make. For the bottom to help it draw in and keep from stretching out I worked just rounds of single crochet, then added a slight picot to the hem.
