How to Crochet a Hat - by ThreadBanger.com

When I received my Subscription updates in the mail today from youtube I was excited to see the 'How to crochet a hat' post by ThreadBanger. This is really a very simple, straight forward way to crochet a hat. Enjoy!

P.S. I like the way she does the counting of the rows.

Beginners Crochet Hat

A Very Simple Beginner Crochet Hat Using Single Crochet Stitch

This weekend I'm preparing to teach a beginning crochet class at the local craft shop so decided to look for a project that they could make with the single crochet stitch. I found the perfect pattern. It is a Lion Brand pattern called First Fall Crochet Hat and I used Lion Brand Cotton-Ease Yarn in Sand.

You can download the pattern on the Lionbrand.com site it is VannasChoice pattern 90380AD. Suggested yarn for the pattern is Vanna's Choice with a hook size J-10 6mm.

This hat is made in a rectangle and then cinched up at the top and the seam sewn down the side.

The pattern gives a hat circumference of 18 inches and although the yarn does stretch it is too small for my 23" head. My 11 year old was able to wear it though and his head is 21".

To make the hat larger add more chains. Instead of 55 as the pattern gives, chain what you think will fit your head. You might need to give it a bit of trial and error to get it perfect.

If you want this to be a slouchy hat just add more length. The patterns stops at 9" so keep going until 12" or more and you'll get the slouchy look.

Another option you can do with this hat is crochet in the back loops only to give it a ribbed look.

      @PoeticChristian: You're like my husband. His head size is similar to our 11 yo. If they have your head circumference they might have a better time making a hat that fits you. Also, maybe adding elastic to the last row will help keep the hat on your head.

      @blessedmomto7: Yes, that cow hat is just too adorable. I made one and it's a pretty simple pattern. You just make a brim and fold it up and sew it to the hat. Not sure how her pattern works but the one I bought does this. Sew some eyes and nostrils and you have yourself a cow beanie.
