Crochet Crown Beanie

when i saw the pattern on photojenics etsy page, i just had to give it a shot! it's a crocheted crown beanie

now i'm totally a beginner at crocheting, and this pattern was easy enough to follow, but also tested my level and i learned quite a few things. first, it was my first "real" pattern i used that didn't have a video tutorial that went along with it. second, it uses an adjustable ring so there isn't a hole in the top of the hat. also different then the other hats i made, this one worked in a swirl instead of a round, slip stitching and moving on to the next round. which meant i had to count my stitches and use stitch markers to keep track of my work. also the hat was made in 2 pieces (the hat, then the crown), then the crown was slid over the hat and crocheted together. and lastly i learned the picot stitch and a shell stitch. watcha think?
