The MC cap

I made this crochet cap for Mr A using a pattern called "The MC" in the book Get Your Crochet On!  I love the results!

The entire hat is worked in single crochet.  Small, tight stitches = super, ultra warm = something my husband's bald scalp can appreciate.  Hats with brims/bills are so popular now, its almost ridiculous how easy they are to make. 

does it look like rain?  at least my head will be warm & dry!
I wore something similar when I coached lacrosse on cold, drizzly Oregon afternoons so I knew Mr A would appreciate the tight weave and shade for his eyes on his daily bike ride to work.  It probably goes without saying that I used up yet another skein of yarn that's been in my possession for over two years.

I/9 hook and Red Heart worsted acrylic (classic)

One unique feature of this hat (and the other hats from this amazing book) is the use of round elastic woven into the last row.  It helps the hats stay snug and keep their shape after repeated use.  So far, I'm a fan. 

Next up: making a matching one in grey with a red stripe for Ikaika :)
