Who Knew Crochet Could Be So Easy?


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.
