"You come into the world with nothing, and the purpose of life is to make something out of nothing" -Henry Louis Mencken


I recently joined the site www.pinterest.com, which if you haven’t heard of, I highly recommend looking into.  I especially like the crafting section (of course) and only two days into using Pinterest, found tons of adorable homemade things- however, they were all crocheted items and patterns.  I couldn’t resist how cute everything was, so I decided to learn to crochet- my first project being this hat!

What it looks like on

 
 

What it looks like flat

 
Here’s the pattern I roughly used, for any of you who know how to read crochet patterns 🙂 I recommend thicker yarn or wool if you are intending it be a warm winter hat.. I also added on a flower later on to make it cuter! Also, you’ll need a 5.00 mm hook! or an H hook.. I don’t know anything about gages yet- still learning!
 
Ch. 2. Work 8 dc into the 2nd chain from the hook. Join with sl st to first dc.
Round 1: Ch 1, sc in first dc, (ch 1, sc in next dc) 7 times, ch 1. Join with sl st to first sc.
Round 2: Sl st into first ch-1 sp, ch 3, 3 dc in ch-1 sp, (sk next sc, 4 dc in next ch-1 sp) 7 times. Join with sl st to first sc. Round 3: Ch 1, sc in first dc, (sk next dc, ch 2, sc in next dc) around; at end of round, skip last dc, ch 2, join with sl st to first sc.
Round 4: Sl st into first ch-2 sp, ch 3, 2 dc into same ch-2 sp, (sk next sc, 3 dc in next ch-2 sp) around. Join with sl st to first dc.
Round 5: Ch 1, sc in first dc, (sk next dc, ch 2, sc in next dc) around; at end of round, skip last dc, ch 2, join with sl st to first sc.
Round 6: Sl st into first ch-2 sp, ch 3, 2 dc into same ch-2 sp, (sk next sc, 2 dc in next ch-2 sp, sk next sc, 3 dc in next ch-2 sp) around; at end of round sk next sc, 2 dc in next ch-2 sp, join with sl st to first sc.
Round 7: Ch 1, sc in first dc, (sk next dc, ch 2, sc in next dc) around; at end of round, skip last dc, ch 2, join with sl st to first sc.
Round 8: Sl st into first ch-2 sp, ch 3, dc, (sk next sc, 2 dc in next ch-2 sp) around. Join with sl st to first dc.
Rounds 9 – 16: Repeat Rounds 7 and 8 four times
Round 17: Ch 1, sc in first dc, (sk next dc, ch 2, sc in next dc) around; at end of round, skip last dc, ch 2, join with sl st to first sc.
Round 18: Sl st into first ch-2 sp, ch 3, 2 dc in same ch-2 sp, (sk next sc, sc in next ch-2 sp, sk next sc, 3 dc in next ch-2 sp) around, sc in last ch-2 sp, join with sl st to first dc.

  1. I do love the hat and the flower you added made it even cuter as you said–can’t wait to see the vest you were going to make–

  2. You should also add the picture and pattern for the grey one for me, and be sure to show the cute button addition! LOVE IT!
