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!

Basic Hat Pattern Version 64-F "Dominick Trey" Scarf


Basic Hat Pattern
Version 64-F
“Dominick Trey Scarf”

The scarf would look better if he had a solid color shirt on! I didn't notice until I was done!
Here is a solid color on the back of his shirt! It looks better from the back view!

Supplies:
size I hook
size J hook
worsted weight yarn in 3 colors
safety pins
yarn needle

Pattern notes:
Scarf is extremely long. It is 13 feet, 2 inches.
Extra long scarf: 13 feet, 2 inches, ch 434
Long scarf: 6 feet, 6 inches, ch 217
Short scarf: 3 feet, 3 inches, ch 109
These are only estimates.  Length will vary due to type of yarn used, whether it is crocheted tightly or loosely, and will stretch some when placed around neck.
When making an enormous amount of chains try to keep them firm so that they are all consistent in size. A firm ch is needed to ensure a smooth edge on the scarf. Loose chains will look sloppy on the side; an edging can be done to hide it.
Use safety pins as stitch markers. Chain in groups of 50 and place a safety pin as a marker.   
Scarf is 3, ¾ wide.
If a wider scarf is desired add another set of each color.
Tassels or fringe can be added to scarf for more interest.
Level of difficulty:
easy, need to know how to change colors
Pattern
Color A Teal
Color B Yellow
Color C Burgundy

With color A, and size J hook,
ch 434.
Change to size I hook.
Row 1. In second ch from hook, sc, ch 1, dc in same sp as sc and ch 1, 1 dc in next 433 sp. Turn. (434 dc)
(Mark round 1 as right side of scarf.)
Row 2. Ch 2, dc in same sp as ch 2, 1 dc in next 433 sp, Dc in top of sc, and ch 1 placing dc in ch 1 sp. Change to color B in last dc made. Turn. (435 dc)
(By putting a dc in the sc, and ch 1, it will give you a straighter edge on the scarf.)
Row 3. Ch 2, dc in same sp as ch 2, 1 dc in next 434 sp.  Dc in top of sc, and ch 1 placing dc in ch 1 sp. Turn. (435 dc)
Row 4. Ch 2, dc in same sp as ch 2, 1 dc in next 434 sp. Dc in top of sc, and ch 1 placing dc in ch 1 sp. Change to color C in last dc made. Turn. (435 dc)
Row 5. Ch 2, dc in same sp as ch 2, 1 dc in next 434 sp. Dc in top of sc, and ch 1 placing dc in ch 1 sp. Turn. (435 dc)
Row 6. Ch 2, dc in same sp as ch 2, 1 dc in next 434 sp. Dc in top of sc, and ch 1 placing dc in ch 1 sp. (435 dc)
Fasten off. 
Attaching the scarf:
Fold scarf in half with right side facing up. Choose which long side, Teal or Burgundy will be attached to hat, mark center with safety pin. 
Place top of hat in lap, holding the bottom of hat mark with a safety pin in the first dc made in round 18. 
Remove safety pin from scarf and attach to safety pin in center of hat.
Count 13 stitches on each side of center of hat and attach safety pin.
It will take about 3 ½-4 yards to whipstitch together.
With right sides facing upward, place hat in lap or on a flat surface with edges touching. Using yarn needle, leaving a 10 inch tail for weaving in, whipstitch edges together. Place 3 stitches in first dc to secure. In remaining dc’s place 2 stitches in each. In last dc place 3 stitches to secure. Weave ends in for 6-8 stitches, reverse and go in opposite direction. Do this a minimum of 4 times to secure scarf.
To learn how to whipstitch, Google “how to whipstitch”.
