I crocheted a quick child's hat on Thursday evening. The pattern is found on the "Lacey Crochet" blog. It's a straightforward, easy pattern. I didn't like the gray color for a child, so I used a deep brown bulky velour yarn, soft and warm. I also increased to a size "G" hook, instead of "E." And I put the ears in a contrasting color (but same type of yarn). Here's a photo, without flash. It shows the colors accurately.
