groovy hat-in-a-flash – free pattern!

August 25, 2011

a hat you can make in (almost) minutes!  this yarn requires super bulky weight yarn and an L hook (or an N hook if you want it a little bigger!)  i used lion brand hometown USA and the hat took just less than 80 yards.

the pattern is very simple, using only single and double crochet stitches.

row 1: ch 3 (counts as first dc).  [sc in first ch, dc in first ch] twice.  sc in first ch.  connect to first dc with a sl st (so you should have 3 dc, 3 sc.)

row 2: ch 1 (counts as first sc).  dc in same st.  *sc, dc in next st.  repeat from * around.

row 3: ch 2 (counts as first dc).  sc in same st.  *dc in next st, [sc, dc] in next st, sc in next st, [dc, sc] in next st.  repeat from * around.

row 4: ch 1 (counts as first sc).  dc in same st.  *sc in next st, dc in next st, [sc, dc] in next st.   repeat from * around.

you can keep increasing in this manner until the hat is as wide as you need, following the increase pattern in sc, dc.  so if you wanted to keep making the hat bigger, the next row would be: ch 2 (counts as first dc).  *sc in next st, dc in next st, sc in next st, [dc, sc] in next st; dc in next st, sc in next st, dc in next st, [sc, dc] in next st.

once the hat is as wide as you would like, continue as follows:

row 5: ch 2 (counts as first dc).  *sc in next st, dc in next st.  repeat from * around.

row 6: ch 1 (counts as first sc).  *dc in next st, sc in next st.  repeat from * around.

repeat rows 5 and 6 until your hat is the desired length!
