Another was a nice combination of rusty reds and browns, but it got sold before I could get photos. So I made a new one in similar colors. The top of this one is multi-color around the top also, but in a more subtle combination of earthy shades. The section that looks olive green is actually more brownish. This hat is now up on the website.
I hadn't made any ski caps in bright colors lately, so I tried using some colors that ordinarily would probably not be considered likely to go well together. This is a sort of game I like to play sometimes - take a pile of yarns that are all different colors and make them work together somehow. I've also used a variety of textures here, including some bright blue dyed samoyed hair. The ties are braided rather than crocheted. Something I've been wanting to try out. See close up photo below.
