Hello my crocheters, today I will show you the slouchy hat I’ve made for my sister. This hat matches the fingerless mittens that I’ve showed you last week. See the pattern for the mittens here:
The pattern is very easy and it looks very beautiful and as you can see it I’ve changed the pom pom with a flower. This gives the hat an unique and original look.
For this hat you will need:
150 g cotton and a 3 mm hook.
For this project I recommend this yarn:
This is a high quality cotton yarn. The mercerisation process gives cotton a fantastic sheen and makes it even more durable. This yarn is a beautiful and shiny material which works great with this pattern.Here you find the yarn: http://bit.ly/2A3PaoL
sl st= slip stitch;
sc= single crochet;
dc= double crochet;
3dc cluster= 3 double crochet cluster;
bp dc= back post double crochet;
fp dc= front post double crochet.
For this pattern you have to make multiple of 8 chain plus 1, for my hat I’ve crocheted 129 chains (52 cm).
Row 1: 2 ch, dc starting with 4rd ch from hook until the end of the row;
Row 2: 2ch, dc, *2bp dc, 2dc*, repeat *-*;
Row 3: 2ch, *2fp dc, 2 dc*, repeat*-*;
Row 4: repeat row 2;
Row 5: repeat row 3;
Row 6: repeat row 2;
Row 7: repeat row 3;
Row 8: 2 ch, dc in the same stitch with 2 ch; *skip 3 dc of the previous row and in the 4th make 1 dc, 2 ch, 1 dc in the same stitch ; skip 3 dc of the previous row and in the 4th make 3 dc cluster, 2 ch, 3 dc cluster in the same dc of the previous row*; repeat -*-, finish the row with 2 dc in the last dc of the previous row;
Row 9: 2 dc, dc in the same stitch with 2 ch; *3 dc cluster in 2 ch of previous row, 2 ch, 3 dc cluster in the same 2 ch of previous row; 1 dc, 2 ch, 1 dc in next 2 ch of previous row*; repeat “*-*”; finish the row with 2 dc in the last dc of the previous row;
Row 10: repeat row 8;
Row 11: repeat row 9.
You can crochet 21 rows (plus the 7 rows of the ribbing), or you can continue until you reach the length you want.
Here is the video tutorial for the lace stitch:
The flower for the hat has 5 rounds:
For round 4 make for each petal 6 ch, and for the round 5 for each petal make 1 sc, 1 hdc, 1 dc, 7 tr, 1 dc, 1 hdc, 1 sc.
For round 6 make 7 ch for each petal and for the 7 round make for each petal: 1 sc, 1 hdc, 1 dc, 9tr, 1 dc, 1hdc, 1sc.
The base of the flower:
For the base of the flower you have to crochet how many rows you need to cover the back of the flower ( for mine I’ve made 3 rounds).
Sew the base on the back of the flower.
Now is time to assemble it:
Fold the rectangular that you just crocheted into half and sew the edges together, at the end secure with a knot and continue with the same yarn and needle working in and out of every other stitch all around. When you arrived in the same point you have started pull the yarn tight until you close the gap, if it doesn’t close enough, don’t panic and leave it like this because on this little gap you will be sewing the flower and it will look perfect.
How to take hat measurements:
There you have it! Simple, but unique, original and beautiful!
