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!

Mega Hats

BHP 
Version 25
Mega Hat

Sometimes I need to make a hat that is mega huge! There are some people out there with massive sized heads! I don’t need this pattern often but it is good to have several of these patterns for men, women, and even children. I have run across a child with a deformed head and have custom fit a Mega hat just for him.



I will make this hat again in 2011 using a single strand of worsted yarn.





Basic Hat Pattern

Using 2 strands of yarn held together,

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. Sl st in next dc, ch 2, 2 dc in same sp as ch 2, 1 dc in next sp, (2 dc in next sp, 1 dc in next sp) 11 times. Sl st in top of 1st dc made. (36 dc)

Round 4. Sl st in next ch, ch 2, 2 dc in same sp as ch 2, 1 dc in next 2 sp, (2 dc in next sp, 1 dc in next 2 sp) 11 times. Sl st in top of 1st dc made. (48 dc)

Round 5. Sl st in next ch, ch 2, 2 dc in same sp as ch 2, 1 dc in next 3 sp, (2 dc in next sp, 1 dc in next 3 sp) 11 times. Sl st in top of 1st dc. (60 dc)

Round 6. Sl st in next ch, ch 2, 1 dc in same sp, 1 dc in next 58 sp. Sl st in top of 1st dc. (60 dc)

Rounds 7 -11. Repeat Round 6.

Round 12. Ch 2, 2 dc in same sp as ch 2, 2 dc in next 3 sp, 1 dc in next sp.( 2 dc in next 4 sp, dc in next sp) 10 times, 2 dc in next 4 sp. Sl st in top of 1st dc. (If your number of stitches is off by 1 or 2 it will not affect the outcome of the hat.) (107 or 108 dc)

Round 13. Ch 2, 2 dc in same sp as ch 2, 2 dc in next 2 sp, 1 dc in next sp.( 2 dc in next 3 sp, dc in next sp) 25 times, 2 dc in next 3 sp. Sl st in top of 1st dc. (If your number of stitches is off by 1 or 2 it will not affect the outcome of the hat.) (187 or 188 dc)

Fasten off.

NOTES;

Round 7 – 11 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 Simply Soft Pink, worsted acrylic yarn, 2 strands held together, a size J hook, and no edging on the hat. You can use a reverse single crochet for an edging on the hat.
