The Spiral Hat

I've found a new hat pattern that I like. I don't like the usual toboggan pattern -- it's so boring and childish. Then I found this pattern. (Click over to read the pattern; it's free.) If you want to see some other pretty photos of this pattern worked out, click here.
As one blogging crocheter noted, this is a combination of front post double crochet and shell pattern. The edge is alternating front and back post double crochet.
The blue one I made first, and it's a tad bit longer than the pattern calls for. I don't like a hat that rides up and falls off. The blue is Simply Soft, and the color is "Ocean."
Then I made two more in a cream color, with a row of single crochet in a bright metallic color blend. The cream yarn is Impeccable, a whole pound of yarn I got 1/2 off during a sale.
The spiral pattern is very fun to work up, and honestly the pattern is pretty easy once you get it down. I highly recommend it.
Now ... we'll see if it sells! It's almost hat weather here.
