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!

BHP (Basic Hat Pattern) Crochet Version 1

BHP
(Basic Hat Pattern)

Version 1
I have made your basic hat in white. I'ts just a pull on, yank of kind of a hat, a beanie! The kind you throw on your bed, the floor, or in the hallway! You have to use your imagination, just take this basic white hat and fun with it!
I will give you some ideas!




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!

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 with leftover “Mainstays” worsted acrylic yarn, 3 ounces, a size I hook, and 16 rounds with no edging on the hat.
