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!

I have pictures now!
Thanks son!



This hat looks great on anyone!

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


Ch 4, sl st in first ch made.

Round 1. Ch 2, dc in ring 12 times. Sl st in top of 1st dc made. (12 dc)

Round 2. Sl st in next dc, ch 2, 2 dc in same sp as ch 2. 2 dc in each remaining 11 st. Sl st in top of 1st dc made. (24 dc)

Round 3. Do not sl st in next dc. Ch 2, 2 dc in same sp as ch 2, fpdc in next sp, (2 dc in next sp, fpdc in next sp), 11 times. Sl st in top of 1st dc made. (36 dc)

Round 4. Do not sl st in next dc. Ch 2, 2 dc in same sp as ch 2, 1 dc in next sp, fpdc in next sp, (2 dc in next sp, 1 dc in next sp, fpdc in next sp.) 11 times. Sl st in top of 1st dc made. (48 dc)

Round 5. Do not sl st in next dc. Ch 2, 2 dc in same sp as ch 2, 1 dc in next 2 sp, fpdc in next sp, (2 dc in next sp, 1 dc in next 2 sp, fpdc in next sp .) 11 times. Sl st in top of 1st dc made. (60 dc)

Round 6. Do not sl st in next dc. Ch 2, 1 dc in same sp as ch 2, dc in next 3 sp, fpdc in next sp, (1 dc in next 4 sp, fpdc in next sp.) 11 times. Sl st in top of 1st dc made. (60 dc)

Rounds 7 -13. Repeat Round 6. (60 dc)

Fasten off.

NOTES;
Round 7 – 13 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 leftover unknown worsted acrylic yarn, a size J hook, and 17 rounds with no edging on the hat. It took 4 ounces to make this hat. If you add more rounds remember you will need more yarn.

You can put an edging on this hat if you want a more finished look. I made these for the kids in the neighborhood; one of my sons thought it looked girlish at the time! But 8 or 9 years later when I asked him to try it on again, he liked it! Plus it looked really good! I didn’t bother to tell him this was the hat he snubbed many years ago!
