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!

6. Shape into a bud.

7. Using tail that you made a sl st with, using yarn needle, tack the rosebud down.

8. Remove yarn from needle and place the other tail on needle.

9. Fold remaining 2 ch to the center of bud. Tack down.

10. Using a few inches from each tail, secure rosebud in a few places so it will retain its shape.

11. Place bud on hat pulling tails through the center hole. Secure rosebud in place.

Notes:
* There are many ideas for this hat. If you don’t want to have the hat stand to tall take away as many rows of 11-17 as needed.

* If you want more height in your hat add more rows in rows 11-17.

* In rows 18 -24 you can add or decrease as many rows as you desire.

* I couldn’t decide if I should continue with one row of red and one row of white, starting at row 11. Or if I should just continue with all white. You choose.

* If you have a leaf pattern you could an a couple of leaves to the rosebud.

* There are many possibilities with this pattern.

For Your Information:

This hat was made with a size I hook. I used Red Heart white and red.
