Bubble Hat

Bubble Hat


Here’s a new hat design I made for a customer who wanted a pink and black hat!!!!  

I absolutely love how this hat turned out using Crafter’s Secret yarn from Hobby Lobby.

The pattern is beginner friendly, with the exception of knowing how to work around the post stitches for the border. As an alternative, the last 3 rounds for the border can be worked in DC stitches.


  Size:

Teen to Average Adult.  The pattern can easily be adjusted by decreasing or increasing the number of “increase rounds”


Materials:

-5.0mm hook

-Crafter’s Secret yarn in Hot Rose (pink) & Black  

-Tapestry needle

-Faux fur pom (optional)


U.S. Stitch Abbreviations:

Ch:  chain

St:  stitch(es)

Sl st:  slip stitch

SC:  single crochet 

DC:  double crochet 

BLO:  back loops only

FPDC:  front post double crochet

BPDC:  back post double crochet

MR:  magic ring 

Rep:  repeat

Y/O:  Yarn over

FO:  fasten off 


Notes:  

1.  Pattern is worked in the round, unless noted.  So, please use a stitch marker to keep track of beginning and end round. 

2.  Prior to changing colors, slip stitch join the last stitch and fasten off yarn.  Weave ends.  

3.  Increase Rounds:  this is the number of rounds you will complete to achieve the desired diameter.  (Diameter times 3.14 will equal head circumference)

Double Pom Christmas Hat

  Double Pom Christmas Hat


This Double Pom Christmas Hat is put together the same way as my Harley Quinn Hat from a few years back.

I made a rectangular shape, using a 5.0mm hook and #4 worsted weight yarn.  

First, I made it the length I wanted.  Next, I folded the right sides together and whip stitched down each side.  I then turned the hat right side out, joined white yarn and completed the border.  

Last, I added the poms to each corner.  Super cute hat.



               Happy Crocheting...

Buffalo Plaid Cozies

 Buffalo Plaid Cozies



Buffalo Plaid Cozies in 2 variations - checkered or striped!!! Fun, quick and easy project. I completed the look of each one by adding a button (deer or moose) to the center of each one. 

I used a 5.0mm hook and #4 worsted weight yarn.  Each cozy fits a water/soda bottle (16 ozs) or a 12 oz can.  It may fit other sizes but I haven’t tried it on anything else. 


 Happy Crocheting...

Candy Cane Hat

 Candy Cane Hat

I made this new hat design a few weeks ago while I was at the beach.  It reminded me so much of a candy cane with the red and white twist design. 

I used a 5.0mm hook and #4 worsted weight yarn to complete. I think it looks good with or without a faux fur pom.

This hat does take a little time and focus to make but isn’t too hard to complete.




Once you have your desired diameter, then the fun with alternating chain stitches between red and white happens.


Once you make the first 5 chains with white, you skip a stitch and slip stitch into the next stitch.  Pull up a loop, remove hook and join red yarn in the skipped stitch and chain 5.  Now, you will skip over the next st and slip stitch into the following stitch.  Pull up a loop, remove hook and join back to the white yarn and repeat process again. Continue to repeat around. 





Here’s my Candy Cane and Jolly Hats!!!!  I love how both of these hats turned out. 


 Happy Crocheting...
