Its fast becoming the winter of hats around here! In addition to this one, I have another pattern to share soon for another style of beanie – this time for me :)
This hat is a riff on the earlier autumn and spring hat. Quickly worked up, this version uses any chunky (12ply yarn). The first hat I made using this pattern for was Maddison, and of course Maia immediately wanted one too (Im such a sucker). I love the colours in this one, it’s so sweet!Mind you that smile’s pretty sweet too!
12 ply yarn ( the hat uses a little over a ball)
Round 1: Make a magic circle and chain 2, half double crochet (HDC) 7 x into the circle and pull tight, join to top of chain 2 (8).
Round 2: Chain 2 (counts as first HDC here and throughout), HDC into same stitch, 2 HDC into every stitch around, join to top of chain 2 (16).
Round 3: Chain 2, 2HDC into next stitch. 1HDC into next stitch, 2HDC into next stitch around, join to top of chain 2 (24).
Round 4: Chain2, HDC in next stitch, 2HDC in next, *HDC in next 2 stitches, 2HD in next stitch*, repeat between * and * around, but only place 1HDC into last stitch (not 2) join to top of chain 2 (32).
Round 5: Ch3, DC into same st, skip 1 stitch, *2DC in next stitch, ch1, skip 1 stitch*, repeat between * and * around, join to top of chain 2 (16 2DC pairs separated by 1ch spaces.)
Round 6 – 10: Ss to next 1ch space, Ch3, DC into same space, skip 1 stitch, *2DC in next ch1 space, ch1, skip 1 stitch*, repeat between * and * around, join to top of chain 2 (16 2DC pairs separated by 1ch spaces.) Check the fit after round 10 and see if it is big enough – keep going until the hat is just about long enough.
Round 11: Chain 1 and single crochet into every stitch around. Do not join again, but continue working in a continuous spiral until the hat is long enough. Maia’s hat has 6 rounds. Fasten off and weave in all ends.
The flower in this hat is the same as the one here, it is predominantly pink (although you cant really see in the pics) and the last round is using the same yarn as the hat…
