Crazy Hat

Hello

Thanks for popping in.

Would you like to see my crazy crochet hat?  It's come out much bigger than I expected!




It's very easy to make:

Foundation row - chain 128, miss the first ch, *1 double crochet in the next 9 ch, 3dc in next ch, 1 ch in next 9 ch, decrease over next 3 ch (insert hook in next ch, yarn over, draw up a loop, miss next ch, insert hook in next ch, yarn over, draw up loop, yarn over and pull through the 3 loops on the hook).  Repeat from * until you've finished the chain.

From now on you'll be working in the back loop only of each dc.

1st row - 1 ch, decrease over next 2 dc (insert hook in next dc, yarn over, pull loop through, insert hook in next dc, yarn over, pull loop through, yarn over, pull through the 3 loops you have on the hook) 1 dc in next 8 dc, *3 dc in next dc, 1 ch in next 9 dc, decrease over next 3 dc as above, 1 dc in next 9 dc and repeat from * until the final 11 dc.  3 dc in next dc, 1 dc in next 8 dc, decrease over next 2 dc as above.

Just repeat Row 1, changing colours when you fancy, until 30 rows have been completed.

Sew the side seam, maybe using the ends if you have enough and they are long enough.

The top 6 rows fold in towards the centre to close the hat.  Sew in place.

The bottom 6 rows fold up.  I've attached a bobble on each point to hold them in place. Here's a link to a bobble pattern.



I hope that's not too confusing!  Once you get in the swing of the ripple, you won't need the pattern!!

Cheerio

  1. Aha! The reveal and very nice and colourful too. A warm hat is certainly needed as I found out when out on this dry, but chilly morning.
