Today I am going to share a new hat pattern with you. This easy hdc hat pattern is quick to work up, uses a bulky weight yarn and a K hook. Even with our Christmas deadline getting close, you can still whip up one of these hats in no time at all!
What you will need:
1 5.3 oz skein of Lion Brand Scarfie
1 K/6.5/10.5 mm hook
tapestry needle for weaving in ends
Stitches and abbreviations used:
(dc) double crochet
(hdc) half double crochet
(sc) single crochet
(ss) slip stitch
(st/s) stitch, stitches
(mr) magic ring
(ssaj) same stitch as join
You will be joining with a slip stitch in the first st made, not the ch 1 at the beginning of each round.
Rnd 1: make mr, ch 2, 12 dc in ring, pull ring tight, join with a ss in first dc made, ch 1 (12 dc)
if you do not know the mr method, ch 3, 12 dc in first ch made, join ch 1
Rnd 2: 2 hdc in ssaj and each st around, join, ch 1 (24 hdc)
Rnd 3: 2 hdc in ssaj, *hdc in next stitch, 2 hdc in next st, repeat from * around, join, ch 1 (36 hdc)
Rnd 4: 2 hdc in ssaj, * hdc in next 2 sts, 2 hdc in next st, repeat from * around, join ch 1 (48 hdc)
Rnd 5: 2 hdc in ssaj, *hdc in next 3 sts, 2 hdc in next st, repeat from * around, join, ch 1 (60 hdc)
Rnds 6 - 11: hdc in each st around, join, ch 1
Rnd 12: hdc in ssaj, *ch 2, skip 2 st/s, hdc in next st, repeat from * around, join, ch 1
Rnd 13: hdc in ssaj, *2 hdc in ch 2 space, hdc in next st, repeat from * around, join, ch 1
Rnd 14: hdc in ssaj, hdc in each st around, join, ch 1
Rnd 15 - 16: Repeat round 13 & 14, join, ch 1
Rnd 17 - 18: sc in ssaj and in each st around, at end of rnd 18, fasten off, weave in ends.
I made this hat as a gift. I added my Picot Flower to it. Please excuse the ends, I wasn't sure if I was going to add the flower or not and had to get another opinion. The flower won, to attach the flower I made 3 french knots in the center and then tacked it down at the picots to make sure it didn't droop and stayed secure.
What do you think, will you add the flower to your hat?
