Crochet: Pattern for my first crochet hats

Here's the pattern for the 3 crochet hats that I am doing/have done:
(1) Chain 6
(2) Close the chain with a simple slip stitch

(3) Make 10 single crochets around the circle, working the tail in as you go around the chain
(4) Make 2 single crochets in each stitch for a total of 20
(5) Then do 2 stitches in each single crochet for a total of 40
(6) Finally do 2 stitches again in each single crochet for a total of 80
(7) Chain 2
(8) Double crochet in each stitch all the way around.

I'm assuming the lady who put this video on youtube, wouldn't mind if I put this pattern up.

Knitting: Circular Needles

I think I am going to undo this one. Unfortunately, now that I have found out this wonderful easy new pattern in crocheting, I might just get rid of this one and make it into something else. Knitting hats, the ending always messes me up. When I get to the top of the hat, I don't know when I should start decreasing and how. Crocheting hats is better for me.

Knit Vs. Crochet

I took a picture of two hats that I have completed, just to see if there is any real difference in crocheting hats and knitting hats. They both look okay to me. The knitted green hat has a ribbed rim, but other than that, they work. The bottom, though, I can see the mistakes from here. I don't know if anybody else can see them.

Crochet: Third Hat

I need to finish this one by Monday. It's another Christmas gift. :D

Crochet: Second Hat Finished

I liked the first crochet hat that I did, I decided to make another one. Both of these are gifts for Christmas.

Crochet: First Hat Finished

Here we go. I was looking through YouTube, and found a really simple crochet hat video to follow. These are the first few steps that I did. The picture in the middle is supposed to be on top, but I can't figure out how to fix it. was the name of the website that was at the end of the video.

It took me only a week to finish. Can you beleive it, a whole week?

I finally finished something! Woohooo!

My very first finished crochet hat!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Sorry and Merry Christmas

My apologies for not writing in a while. Honestly, I have been busy but not only that. It get's taxing going down to the library, every time I want to post something. The good news is, I am getting a wireless laptop for Christmas today. So, if I can figure out how I can use it in my room, you will be hearing more from me. Anyway, thanks again, and I hope all of you have a wonderful Christimas.
