This winter, I have been in dire need of a new cozy hat. Not wanting to buy one in store (all the ones I liked were way to expensive), I started scouring the internet for patterns that looked appealing. I came across this little beauty, and decided to give it a whirl.
It turned out pretty well with just a few minor adjustments. You never know with internet finds, as I have had some real doozy’s of end results on projects. This one however wasn’t a catastrophe, so I thought I’d share it with you!
I used the Lion Brand Alpine Wool yarn, and though a little scratchy, the color and ease of use make up for it.
Gauge: 8dc*10rows = 10*10cm
I used 8.00 mm hook
At the end of each round join with a sl st in 3rd ch of beg. ch 3.
Ch 3, join with sl st to form ring.
Rnd 1: ch 3 (count as dc), make 11 dc in ring.(12 dc)
Rnd 2: ch 3, 2 dc in each dc.(24 dc)
Rnd 3: ch 3, 2 dc in the same joining dc,*ch 2, skip 1 ch, 3 dc in next dc*, repeat from * around, ending with ch 2 and joining to first dc group.(12 dc group)
Rnd 4: ch 3, turn, 2 dc in next ch 2 space,*ch 2, 3 dc in next ch 2 space*, repeat from * around, ending with ch 2 and joining to first dc group.(12 dc group)
Rnd 5: repeat Rnd 4.
Rnd 6: ch 3, 1 dc in each next 2 dc,*1 dc in next ch 2 space, 3 dc in next 3 dc*, repeat from * around ending with 1 dc in last ch 2 space and joining to first dc.
Rnd 7: ch 3, 3 dc, dc2tog.,*4 dc, dc2tog.*, repeat from * around, joining to beg. ch3.
Rnd 8: ch 3, 2 dc, dc2tog.,*3 dc, dc2tog.*, repeat from * around, joining to beg. ch3
Rnd 9: sc around, join with sl st to last sc
Rnd 10: sc around, join with a sl st to last sc
Rnd 11: sl st around edge to last sc
Fasten off and weave in all ends
Here she is, all fancy on Millie!
In retrospect, I think I would make it a little bigger. I have thick thick hair and a large head, and the hat didn’t quite have the slouchy affect I wanted in the back. Alas, I still like it, and I’ll still wear it.
Can you tell I like black?
I took my hat out for a jaunt around Point Defiance Zoo, for the last night of Zoo Lights. It’s a fun little walk around, and perfect for a chilly winter night with a cup of coco in hand.
I hope your all staying warm in this chilly start to the new year!
