Wednesday Update: More Hats

Leave a comment

Good Day everyone,

It seems I am still on the hat craze. I really enjoy making crochet hats they are fun to make as gifts and in high demand up here in the north.

This week I made some little baby girl beanies with a shell edging I think they came out nicely.

Crochet Baby Beanie with Flower

I used a self-changing colored yarn for the first one and added a small flower.

Crochet Baby Beanie with Heart

For the second hat I used Redheart Shimmer yarn and added a heart.

My daughter’s baby doll was kind enough to model for me.

Warm Winter Hat

I also finished a long over due project this week. The warm winter hat I began quite some time ago. I have just had so many projects going I couldn’t get to it. It feels good to finish a project! Less yarn laying around attached to stuff.

You can find a link to this free pattern on a previous post called Crochet Hat Madness: Projects in Progress. One reason it took me a while to finish other than being overloaded on projects was that I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do for the edging. I decided to change it and just decrease over the cables until they were down to just 1 DC which became the FPDC for the last row. You can see how the cables point at the bottom.

Chunky Modern Beret

Finally, I have been working on a new pattern this week that I am calling a Chunky Modern Beret. It is somewhat of a slouch hat but made more like a beret with a lacy pattern.

My mother-in-law modeling for me. I am really pleased with how it came out. This too is a self-changing colored yarn.

You can really see how pretty the colors are from the side.

I will test this pattern on a few more hats before sharing it with you. But don’t worry it’s already in the works!

Busy! Busy!

Well that is what I worked on for this past week. Hope you guys enjoyed this post! I am working on a creeper hat for my son and a ninja turtle hat for my daughter so look for those in the next week or two.

I’d love to chat with you on Facebook or follow you on Pinterest.

Until next time, Happy Crocheting!
