Jester Hat in Freestyle Jigsaw Crochet

This is my latest jigsaw project. So far it's light and dark purple, dark blue and gray.  It will be a jester hat with three tubes for my hair to feed through. I want to wear it on Saturday so I better get going on it. Today we have to move a bed from Arcadia to Anaheim, so I won't have much time, but maybe I can crochet in the car while he drives to and fro.

Circus Hat With Tubes For Braids

Using freestyle techniques to create a hat is a lot of fun, but you have to keep a careful eye on the shape so that when you are all done it still turns out to be a hat. I just finished this one and started a new one yesterday. I think it's good to always have one in the works. Because of the way the braids go through the tubes, I don't have to worry about it falling off during a juggling show if I take a bow or pick up my next props out of the bag on the ground.
