Crochet Slouchie Beanie

This is our first winter here in Airzona.  We are surrounded by mountains in our neck of the desert, so I suppose it was bound to get a bit chilly some days.  We have had a decently cool spell the past couple of weeks.  I couldn't resist making myself a crochet slouchie beanie.  I have wanted one for a long time, but hats have never been my specialty, mainly because of the progression on the top, but with a slouchie beanie, there is none!  I tried out a few patterns, but I wasn't pleased with them, so I decided to create my own.  My husband liked mine so much, that he asked me to make him one too (in a much more many color, of course).  I think he looks much better in his than I do in mine, but what do I expect?  He is a very good looking mountain man!  After seeing how handsome it looked on him, two of my husband's coworkers put in requests for theirs as well.  I love to crochet, and it is fun being able to come up with new projects.  I always struggle with what crochet items I can make during the warm months too.  Any suggestions?  Thanks for stopping by!

And I couldn't resist putting in a picture of the crochet Christmas tree hair clips I made for my daughter last night.  I used gold crochet thread and attached them to partiallly lined alligator clips.  So festive!!
