Beer Can Hats.
Oy! How could this be possible? I never actually owned or crocheted one, I've only admired them from afar.....waaaay far.
In the L.A. Times today, there was an article about L.A. Fashion Week.
"Meghan Fabulous took a trip through Vacation Land, with ethnic tunic tops with dangling horn embellishments, slip dresses with glittering sea glass at the neckline, and hand-painted kimonos belted over shorts, all worn with touristy beer can bucket hats."
Touristy beer can bucket hats? Come on. When have you EVER seen a tourist wear a beer can hat? This is definitely a DOWN HOME style accessory, to be worn in one's own backyard or at a family gathering.

Looks like designer, Meghan Fabulous used fancy,
international beer cans for her hats!
So, of course I went on the internets to see if I could find a pattern for this divine creation. All of the patterns have been deleted! There were even threads in discussion rooms about how upset crocheters were that the patterns had been deleted! Maybe, if we look carefully, we can figure this one out! This might just be a great stash-buster for some quick holiday gifts! Yeah! Forget about those fancy Koigu socks and Noro Kureyon belts! All of my friends are getting beer can hats made with Super Yarn Mart acrylic yarn!!! Hey! They're soooo fashionable and au currant.
