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!

NOTES:

This hat can be made with a size F hook and less rounds for a preemie hat.

It can be made with a size H hook and more rounds for a larger or older baby.

Round 5 – 8 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.

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

For Your Information:

This hat was made with leftover Simply Soft worsted acrylic yarn, a size G hook.


Noel, a cna at the nursing home mom is in, asked for a purple newborn hat.

Optional Edging.
