Crochet: Assorted Hats from Leftover Yarn

I crocheted a few hats for this winter - made-up patterns that are variations of the standard hat pattern.

The four here are each different from the other in some way - one even has ear flaps that provides the trendy chain mail helm look :)

Hats are the easiest to crochet - two ways to do it: from crown to brim or brim to crown. For kids I prefer brim to crown so I can start at the brim and check if the starting chain fits around the head fine and then size it from there.

I don't like doing gauge swatches - it makes perfect sense to do it, of course, but it is a pain. And that's one of the reasons I love crochet (as opposed to knitting) - I can adjust and size as I crochet along whereas knitting needs to be a bit more precise (at least for me).
