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!

Newborn Happy Hat!

Basic Hat Pattern

Version 27
Newborn Happy Hat

I had a VERY difficult time getting enough lighting 
to take a decent pic of this hat! When I started pulling 
my hair out I went downstairs to seek help! Sorry for 
the pics of the den couch and its clutter!

Yep! That's my spouser's pant leg as he hovers over with an 
extra light! I need all the help I can get tonight!




It's a very easy little spiral to make!

Using tail just cut, thread yard needle and place the 3 sc under spiral and anchor in place with 1 stitch.
Remove tail you were using and thread remaining tail on needle. Place needle beside where you just anchored the sc.
Draw needle through to the opposite side and pull up yarn through so that you have a tail on each side of the spiral.


Thread yarn tails on needle and pull through the top of the hat, position spiral in center. Take one tail off needle and using needle anchor spiral in place. Repeat with remaining yarn tail.
To anchor spiral, bring needle up through hat and draw needle through bottom of spiral and bring back through the hat.
