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!

Extra Hat Pattern!!! Version 12-A



BHP

Version 12-A

Front Post DC

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!

NOTES;
Round 7 – 12 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.

I do love your basic hat patterns! I make chemo caps for children, and these patterns have served as the base for many a cheerful cap!!! Thanks!!

Hi!

Thank-you very much!

I used to make chemo hats (I call them caring hats.) for children but don't do them anymore unless I get a request.

I still make caring hats for adult cancer patients just not as many.

I'll try to put up some of my children's hat patterns soon. I have one with a secret pocket inside the hat to hold money or a letter. A safe place to keep something important!

Hugs,

Sherry

I'd love to see some of your hats! Are you on Ravelry? My name is icrocheticreate.
