I know they're good practice, otherwise, they wouldn't be such a beginner's project staple, but I don't want to make something I'll never wear. :-)

Projects like that are excellent for charity projects. I like making hats and experimenting and I usually donate them.

When asking questions ALWAYS post the name and a link for the pattern if you have it.

I was thinking of those flat "strip" hats, military men wear. But a beanie! that I know and have even designed my own. So that: ok, if it is your style. But like everything else: chose your own project.
