Here is a hat made from one of my favorite patterns--Rubylene. I had quite a bit of yarn left over from other projects so I decided to make this. It is a cinch to adapt this to a slouch hat by adding additional shell rows. No problem to work one of these up in an evening either.
One of these days I'm going to learn some photography tricks. Seems like when I was taking these pictures yesterday morning, I was either getting shadows as is seen in these pics or shadows of ME. I promise to keep practicing. :)
