The Drops Dilemma hat

I have been neglecting my crocheting lately. And so I started making a christmas present. I enjoyed crocheting so much that I made another hat. So I am showing you the second hat. :) Since the second hat does not have a home yet.

I was thinking about it, and the hat does look kind of lonely, should I make a flower on it? Or ears?

I do love making hats and crocheting in the round, it went by oh-so-fast. So my new project after christmas? Making animal hats for all the gachas in their colours. ^^
I do need to practice my crocheting in the round. But it was so much FUN and I want to make MOAR! NOAW! Only trouble is: this hat. Who will get it? My initial thought was to make the other hat with this colour just as a border on the end of the hat, but when I did I could not fit the hat over my head and I am not really a fat-head. So if it did not fit me it would not fit anyone I knew. So I scrapped that idea and made this hat as a full hat. But the colour is so bleak and would suit someone dark, I don't know anyone who is dark.... So who is going to get this hat for christmas?
Stay tuned to find out.

Another IDEA I had was to just take the two hats and sew them together, twice as warm and it would not let any wind in. But it might not feel as good. Might be a bit too tight. Oh, woe is me.... What to do... I might just bite the dust and give in and ask the recipient what she wants, because she is the one who is going to wear the hat. Or I could just give it to her and add a note and any alterations would be added next time I met her...
Good Idea, lets ask her.
(That way if she chooses something and it does not work out properly, I am not to blame)

That yarn looks really soft!
I've never crocheted hats before, it looks good!

The yarn is absolutely wonderful, really warm and cozy, but it is kind of strenuous to work with such a big hook (8). It gets on my arms.
But thank you, want a gacha hat?
