Quick reminder that there is only 31 sleeps to Christmas, it’s go-time to get those gift projects done! ….Or else you will have to purchase them, or perhaps win them, from me 😉
I am the type of person who cannot sit through a movie, unless I am doing something else at the same time, I fall asleep. So this is my ‘movie hat’ because it can be completed in the same amount of time as watching a movie. It will seem like it is going slow because of the ribbing, it is worked in a single crochet using the back loops so it doesn’t feel like you are making much progress. I have made about 20 of this pattern because it is easy and it looks good. I like that it starts from the ribbing and works its way up to the top so that you keep that nice shape. For some reason when I try to make a hat starting from the top and working in a round with the magic circle, it just becomes a rather large circle. It never turns out for me the way I want it to.
Thanks to Christmas with the Kranks for getting me through this one.
The pattern is posted at the bottom of the page!
I opted out of the pom-pom.
I am in love with the warm colors of this yarn!
Without a pom-pom, it felt a little unfinished, So I added a little metal emblem that I found in the jewellery making section of Michaels.
Adorable! The little extra touch pulled it together. It’s harder to see the texture when it isn’t a solid color.
An areal view without a pom-pom, just cinched together.
One skein of yarn is all that was needed but as you can see, there wasn’t much left over. This hat fits me but if you need to make one for a larger noggin, be sure to purchase 2 skeins. I always buy 2 of each when I am yarn shopping just in case.
I splurged and got a size 5.25mm hook with the fancy handle because it is the one that I use the most, it wasn’t worth it though as I hold the hook closer to the top anyways. It just makes me look like a serious hooker…. 😉
