Crocheted Suede brimmed hat
This hat was a lot of fun to make, as much of a pain as it can be to crochet suede yarn. :)
It's made with Lion brand suede and size I crochet hook. I really like it and haven't decided if I can part with it yet. Pattern is really simple. Increase for dome as you would with my pretty cool crochet hat until you have 66 stitches around. Sc for 8 rows, switch colors, sc for 3 rows more. Then increase four rows as you would for the dome ending with 90 scs.
The wire was really just an option. I wanted the top to be a tight circle and couldn't get it with just crocheting, I tried smaller hooks and it just wasn't working so I decided on the wire. Glad I did now.
