Snowboarding Hat

So i wanted to make a hat to match my snow jacket. I saw a pic of a hat online that i liked ( so I wanted to make one like this. My jacket is Pink and Brown so I tried to get colours to match. It was quite difficult to do this but the colours I found were not too bad.
Having spoke to a few people on the forum they informed me that this was just single crochet. They also gave me the advice to start from the top and work down.

So thats what i did.
The pictures were taken after the first wash. and the hat stretched a bit after that. I am fairly happy with the hat, but i think i will use a smaller crochet hook for the next one. The size recommended by the yarn was 5mm. but as you can see, the stiches are not too tight, and i think i would have liked it a bit tighter.
But all in all, i didnt think this was a bad first effort.
