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!

Pattern notes:
Save some time and less work, carry ends behind the next round, and crochet over them.

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”.

Crochet Spot has an excellent tutorial on how to whipstitch in crochet. There are awesome pictures that make it easy to understand.
There is a lot of great information to improve your crochet experience at Crochet Spot.


 For your information:
Red Heart in colors Teal, Burgundy, and Yellow were used.
The Burgundy side of scarf was chosen to be attached to the bottom of hat which is also Burgundy.
