The summer is over which means we need crochet more than ever! How to stay warm and stylish during the cold seasons? Here is my idea for a hat! Of course it can be made any size and colours, but let’s admit that the burning colours of autumn are magical!
- 3.5 mm crochet hook
- recommended for the hook yellow, orange and light brown yarn (I used an amazing yarn will all the colours coming one after another without a gradient (see the picture). 210 m = 85 g, I needed a little less than 85 g)
- pompon (if you do not have one, just make it yourself using the tutorial)
- ch – chain
- st – stitch
- sl st – slip stitch
- dc – double crochet
- dinc – in this case: 2 double crochet in 1 st
- FPdc – front post double crochet
- (…) X 10 – repeat “…” 10 times
The pattern is for a 2 years old child (50-52 cm head). If you use a yarn of a different sickness, the size of the hat might change!
Important: At the beginning of every round we make 3 ch which are counted as one dc in the pattern. At the end of every round the last dc is connected to the first one with one sl st.
Round 1: 10 dc in magic ring (10)
Round 2: dinc X 10 (20)
Round 3: (dc in next st, dinc) X 10 (30)
Round 4: (dc in next 2 st, dinc) X 10 (40)
Round 5: (dc in next 3 st, dinc) X 10 (50)
Round 6: (dc in next 4 st, dinc) X 10 (60)
Round 7: (dc in next 5 st, dinc) X 10 (70)
Round 8: (dc in next 6 st, dinc) X 10 (80)
Round 9-18: dc in all st (80)
Now we start crocheting the ribbling (just go on further without cutting the yarn).
Round 19-21: FPdc in all dc of the prvious round (80) If you do not know the stitch, no worries, it is really easy! Just insert the hook into a double crochet of the round before (as it is shown on the picture below), the rest is the same as a regular dc.
As you see, I made 3 rounds in the ribbling, but you can make more if you think, that the ribbling is too narrow. Perfect would be to let your child try it on. If you do not have the opportunity, just make 4 rounds to be sure that the hat is long enough!
Now you can fasten off, cut the yarn, weave in the end and sew the pompon to the hat. If you have do not have a pompon and you have never made it before, here is one of the method (the easiest) explained.
Yeeeey… the hat is ready!!!
My son loves his new autumn hat, he even wanted to wear it indoor 🙂
I hope that a little owner of the hat you made will like it and stay warm!
