Lately I have been wanting to make those really cute crocheted hats. I finally found a pattern and made a bunch of them. Of course I had to make four of them before one would fit my son.
I hadn't figured out gauge and such at that time so I just kept on making them till one fit. Finally one did. I think he looks so handsome.
Here is the pattern for this hat. It was pretty easy to make.
-Worsted weight yarn
-Size J or K crochet hook (for adult size hat)
-5 dc=2 inches
-6 rows=5 inches
Beginning at top with main color, ch 5, sl st in first ch to form ring.
Round 1: Ch 3, 11 dc in ring. Join with a sl st in top of ch 3. Turn each round.*
Round 2: Ch 3, 2 dc in each dc around = 24 dc Sl st in top of ch 3.
Round 3: Ch 3, dc in next dc, 2 dc in next dc (12 times) = 36 dc
(You can make this row twice to make a larger hat)
Round 4: Ch 3, dc in next 2 dc, 2 dc in next dc (12 times) = 48 dc
Round 5-12: Ch 3, dc in each dc around. I added a different color to rows 9, 11, and 12.
Round 13-16: Ch 1, sc in each st around.
Can fold sc rounds for a smaller hat.
* I didn't turn the hat. I just kept on going in one continuous round.
The other hat I made was this scalloped one. I saw how hats are made and decided to try out making one from scratch. This is what I came up with. I think it turned out pretty cute. The only thing I would change would be part of the top. It pocks out a little bit and I have to figure out how to make it so it doesn't do that.
So, here is the giveaway! You have a choice between one of the two hats I made that don't fit my son's head. One has a circumference of 14 inches and the other has one of 16 inches. I'm guessing both will fit from around 6 months to 1 1/2 years. I would measure your kids' head though.
