Vintage Hat for the NC State Fair 2011

When I was trying to decide what hat I wanted to make this year for the adult hat category I came across Purple Kitty's website. Just loved the Queenie Beanie hat pattern. So I went to AC Moore yesterday at lunch time to look for a vintage color yarn to make this cool hat.

Here were the three colors I fell in love with in the yarn department. I am really hearing the green call my name. Today at lunch I started the hat in the aqua color as a tester to see if I was going to have any issues with the pattern. There are 11 rows total on this hat and I got through row 7 on my lunch hour. Man this hat works up fast. The braid with probably take forever but the hat has been a dream to crochet.
