HATS!!

Granny Stitch Crochet Sun Hat

To go along with my last post about sizing blankets, scarves and such; here is a list of various hat sizes.  I know from experience how annoying it is to try and make a hat bigger and it just doesn’t work!  I’m sure you’ve all been there.

This is the link to the page itself

I hope that will be useful to all of you!

For today I thought I’d post some hat patterns (I have no idea where that idea came from *wink wink*)

6 month Hat with Earflaps (Not my pattern, can be found here)

Finishing:

 

Loosely crab stitch around the sides of the earflaps and the edge of the hat (in the point of each earflap, crab stitch two times).  (If this is too tight for you, try sc around instead)  Finish off, weave in ends.

 

 

Braided Strings:

 

Cut 12 pieces of yarn, about 16 in long.

 

Take six pieces of yarn together. Put hook through loop on the tip of the earflap, from the inside out. Pull a loop of the yarns through, and pull the tail end through the loop. With three groups of four strands of yarn, braid. When the braid is desired length, tie a knot at the end, trim fringe to desired length.

Loopy Flower:

 

Round 1: Magic Ring, 8 sc.  Pull tight to close.   Join with sl st to first sc.

 

Round 2: Ch 8.  Sl st in same st.  *Ch 8.  Sl st in next st.  Repeat from * around, with the final sl st in the base of the first ch loop.  Finish off, weave in ends or leave ends for tying onto hat.
