Granny square hat

I need your opinion peeps!

I saw a pattern for a hat made with 4 granny squares and a middle worked in the round. I didn't like that, but was intrigued by the idea of a hat made soley with grannies.

So today, I played with yarn and hook sizes and came up with this hat. I really like the color scheme but I'm not sure about the hat itself.

Do you like a hat made of granny squares like this? Would you wear something like this? Is it too bold? Be honest with me! I can take it.



Little monster and I have a very similar head size (seriously!), so I had her model the hat for me (I would have done it but my hair is a big mess and it would have been very unfair to you if I had subjected you to that kind of horror).

Here is a side view.



Here is a front view. The hat actually is supposed to be lower on her forehead, but she was being goofy and it rode up. Yeah, very VERY goofy.



So tell me what you think!

Well, if you're that unsure I think you should just...well...send it here. I'll um...test it for you. Haha. Yes, I love it!

LOL! I personally don't care much for granny squares in a hat. I prefer earflap hats,,,. Let guage before beauty test it!!

I would, especially with smaller squares and out of crochet thread. It reminds me of "kufi" which I wear regularly.

Oh, and I love the colors, btw.

Ooh! Currently I love granny square anything. I guess you could say I'm in a granny square phase. Love the hat! I would wear it even if I didn't have granny squares on the brain. Great job with the color scheme, too. It's a nice change from brown and pink.

How unbelievably nice of you to offer to send me one!! But honestly I'd feel like I was taking advantage of your kindness. But you can bet your butt I'm gonna make one when you post the pattern!!!

The colors don't do it for me, but the hat is very cute.

I made this hat about 15 years ago for my mother and myself. She has passed and can't find it, so I was starting over, your directions were perfect, and now I can finish what I started. Your daughter looks great in the hat. Thanks so much, for getting me started again.
