So........ my son doesn't wear hats.  Except, of course, when it's an Angry Bird's Hat.  I knew that making a Black Bomb Angry Birds Crochet Hat for him was the only way I would keep his head covered this winter, so I spent an entire evening designing one. 

Keep in mind that this pattern is still in it's testing phase- I've only made one so far.  So please let me know how it goes for you if you try it out.  I'd appreciate the feedback :)
