Wednesday Update: Crochet Spring Hats

Good Morning!

Spring is on the way and Easter is around the corner. I am hard at work making spring/summer hats. I am testing different stitch patterns trying to get the design right. *note* All of these hats are made with 100% worsted weight cotton.

Have a look!

The first hat I made turned out a little too small but is still very cute. It is striped with a shell edging. I made the stripes without fastening off and joining. A technique that I am learning where you carry the non-working yarn along and stitch over it.

I will add a solid color flower to this hat to anchor the bold stripes.

This half-double crochet edging is one of my favorites to do.

This is the hat I made for my daughter. She is going through her ‘blue period’. I think that the shells in this pattern are my favorite so far.

I also made an orange hat with a different pattern. This pattern includes a v-stitch and a small fan stitch.

I am going to modify the stitches on the orange hat for the next one.

I currently have a single crochet crown made and I am just about to start my next spring hat. This time I think I will add a larger brim more like a sun-hat.

Well that’s what’s on the hook here, what spring projects are you guys working on? I’d love to see especially your hats!

Hope you guys enjoy these hats and get inspired to make your own! Until next time happy crocheting.

Elenka by Inna Aleksandrova

This dress is adorable with its ribbon detail and an empire waist. It has been made by many so there are lots of examples on this Ravelry download. The dress featured here was taken by MissusVonkysmeed.

Angel Wings Pinafore by Maxine Gonser

This little dress is so cute! I think it is my favorite being worn over a cape sleeve under shirt and a tulle skirt. Also a download from Ravelry, this dress photo is by GraceFaithHope. And although the pattern is for 3 month it can be altered to fit an older girl.
