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!

Version 6! Color, Colors, Everywhere!

BHP

(Basic Hat Pattern)

Version 6

I love, love stripes!

The combinations are endless!




This hat uses all sc. I crochet tightly so I went up 2 hook sizes to get the hat to fit properly, otherwise it would have been very small and very tight! Keep that in mind when creating this hat.

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!
 

Basic Hat Pattern

Colors are listed at bottom of page. You can use your own combinations of colors. It takes a few yards for each row. I used leftovers from an afghan I made.
Don’t forget to crochet over ends in each row! You will be glad you did!
