Lovely Sewn Patterns

Present for me!
I wanted a beanie with a brim, but couldn't find any patterns, so I just winged it. It turned out ok, but I didn't add any increases in the brim, so when I put it on it is pulled flat, into more of a flap. At first I was annoyed (hence the angry picture taken at 2am) but now I kind of like it. It's..... subtle.
The red arrow points to where the brim actually begins, but is pulled against my head.
It has more of a brim when I take it off:
But it's VERY warm, and that's all that matters. I will try again later with a brim pattern I found online.
Christmas Presents: Part II
This it what it looks on:
It's pretty thick so I made it short. It's more decorative than functional I think, which is fine because the recipient works in Seattle.
Christmas Presents: Part I
I crocheted this hat using Patons Divine (which was a PAIN!). I didn't use a pattern again! :D When it started to get a little big, I added some decreases. I thought it looked funny at first, but the recipient has very large, curly hair, and it keeps her hair in control quite nicely. My mother made the scarf on the smallest knifty knitter (I love those things!) and I crocheted the matching flowers.
And here is what the hat look on:
I hate taking pictures of myself, it's very awkward. I needed a mannequin head, but I think it'd creep me out...

Today I managed to sneak some pictures of my Incredible Emoticon Hat. It's crocheted using wool-ease thick & Quick, and I used some cheap worsted weight to make the eyes and mouth. The features have velcro on the back so you can move them around. It was my first hat, so I just winged it (no pattern!), and it turned out really great! Here are some of the faces you can make:
And here a bad picture of what it looks like on:
Mind you, I have a really small head, and the recipient has a really big head.
PS. Aaron, if you are reading this.... Pretend you didn't...
