Hats Always On My Head!

It's so great to have you visit my hat blog!

My goal is to showcase the potential of even the most novice crocheter to be able to stitch together the most beautiful beanies, berets, and brain-warmers they never dreamed possible!

Please share your photos so I may place them on my Flickr page and here on this blog! I'm looking forward to sharing your hats with others and I just love to see what you have created!

Rounds 7 -16. Repeat Round 6 changing colors each round until hat is desired length. End with color of your choice.
Edging: Sl st in next ch, sl st in each sp loosely. If your sl st is too tight your hat will not have enough give or stretch to put on your head!
Fasten off.
NOTES;
Round 7 – 16 is where you personalize the length of the hat. Make as many or as few rounds needed so the hat is as long as needed to cover your head.
You can also make extra rounds if you want a brim to roll up.
For Your Information;
This hat was made using Red Heart’s Dark Orchid, (solid color) and Red Heart’s Plum Pudding, (variegated) yarn. A size H hook was used with a slip stitch edging.
