Crochet Hat 6 - Metallic Teal & Metallic Sea Breeze

View my items for sale here:
This hat was done with the same pattern as my Hat 4 (red and white), however I used a very different yarn, a silky metallic yarn, so it took 60 rows instead of 40 to make 15 inches in length, and turned out very short, so it's in no way a slouchy hat. In fact it had no room to even fold up! But makes for a well fitting basic beanie.  

 I guess it's best fitted for a seven year old child!
I made this had to match my wrist warmers for myself, but clearly belongs on this lovely head instead ^_^

Total time = 6 hours 5 minutes
