Just in time for Summer
As summer is starting, I decided to try my hand at crocheting some hats. I finished the first sample the other day but wasn't all to happy with the outcome so I tweaked the pattern a bit and added flowers.

The pink one is for me and the other two are for friends. It took approx. 4 hours per hat, less than a skein and I finished two just today and added the flower to the blue one. I made up a pattern as I went and is fairly easy. I only used double and single crochet stitches and now I am addicted. I still have tons of yarn left over to make tons more but I think I will take a break for a day or two as my hand is aching.

Blue cap: Made with a brushed yarn, 100% Acrylic
Orange: Made with another brushed 100% Acrylic yarn
Pink: Pink Acrylic and wool rich: acrylic, wool, polymide blend

Thanx for looking!

    Step 4

    Rosette: S (M,L)

    Ch 17 (35, 53) join to form a ring. Make sure to leave a long enough tail to be threaded through center to close the ring a bit. [ this is done after you are finished with round 2]

    Rnd 1: Ch 1 34 (70, 106) dc in ring, join in first dc.

    Rnd 2: Ch 3 (counts as a dc), 5 dc in first st * sc next st, 6 dc in next st Repeat from * until you reach the first st. and sc the st.

    Fasten off.

    Step 5

    Now take the tail in the middle and thread through the center…(so when you get back to where you started, you can pull the thread and it will bring the ring closer together.) now all that is left to do is attach to where you want it to be on the hat and you are finished.
    Note: I used a small rosette which came out just the right size.
