I saw this hat and it looked so comfortable I had to make it. It was quick, easy, and also a good stash buster. Very warm too...I just got out of the shower and it's keeping my head warm :)
Here's the link for the pattern: http://www.caron.com/vickiehowell/patterns/urban_jungle/urban_jungle.html
I also had finished the sweater I mentioned, but took it out because it fit poorly. I think I will modify the half double crochet portion and I am going to make it smaller to fit better. However, it will probably be a while until I try the pattern again.
