Introduction: Andy the Android Hat
So as you can tell, this is the 3rd Andy the Android Crochet project I've done...I love that little robot! Unfortunately there are no pictures of the process as I made this for my blog:
Also you can see in the photo I have my awesome big mac mitts on. I unfortunately did not draft a pattern for those as I was really just improvising on a variation of burger mitts from the great crochet artist Twinkie Chan.
I love my Andy Hat, perfect for cool days or when you just want to look cool.
The Andy Hat
Pattern notes. I made this using a K sized hook. I have a pretty large head and this hat was even a wee bit loose on me so if I were to make it again I might either move down to a J sized hook or skip the last set of increases and add an extra row (60 sts)...that might be a bit small for me personally though, so you just have to pay attention as you crochet. Also in order to make it more snug I really tightened my stitches on the last three or for rows.

Sew the antenna on and use two buttons for eyes, I chose white, but black might also have been nice...since Andy's eyes are basically holes that go all the way through, you'd want to pick whatever you'd think would be in the background :)
