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!

It's Just Blue! Version 8!

BHP
(Basic Hat Pattern)

Version 8


I love, love, love striped hats!!! You will find over time I will always throw in a striped hat every now and then! The combination of colors is endless, the width of the stripes, so much you can do to make an awesome striped 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!

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 following the striped pattern.

You can also make extra rounds if you want a brim to roll up.

For Your Information;

This hat was made with leftover Red Heart worsted acrylic yarn, a size I hook, and 15 rounds with no edging on the hat. It takes about 3 ounces to make the hat. You only need a small amount of the medium blue.
