Cowboy Hat for Q

Hello Again...

Here is another gift that I made over vacation. Quinlan, my nephew, was grilling me on all things Texan. He wanted to know all about the big ole piece on his US of A puzzle map called Texas. I told him about Cowboys and how they round up cattle and whatnot... and told him about cowboy hats, boots, and spurs.

Of course, then I thought, why not make him a cowboy hat so he could be sherriff?

No pattern... the crown was made in single crochet... the brim crocheted in back loops only in double crochet. I held two pieces of yarn together, one strand was wool-ease in woods and the other was just some random off-white worsted weight yarn I had.
