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!

Crochet BHP Version 4, A New Stitch!

BHP
(Basic Hat Pattern)

Version 4

Guess what this baby to toddler size hat doesn’t use? Double Crochet! I have changed it up to use hdc! Same BHP just a different stitch!




Here's a close up of the flower.

Here is the hat with no flower on it.


For years I have had numerous requests to take this pattern from my head to paper. I’m not a designer, just created this pattern out of necessity when I was diagnosed with cancer.
I will be adding all the versions I have of this pattern over the next few months. It’s very versatile and you can create so many different hats by starting with the basic pattern.

**********

1. Choose a pattern and check yardage needed.
2. Choose your yarn and appropriate hook size for that yarn.
That’s it!
Be your own designer and create an original hat just for you!

Optional; You can add flowers to your hat if you would like to personalize it!

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.

For Your Information;

This hat was made with Caron Simply Soft, Baby Brights Ombre, a size G hook, and 19 rounds of hdc. It 
took just over 2 ounces of yarn to make this one.

The flower pattern came from “Crochet Bouquet” By Suzann Thompson. The pattern name is “Small Petals Around” pages 36 and 37!
I love this book! I keep one in the car with my car crochet projects and another for the house!
