Hi there! Remember this color? And this yarn?
I originally started out to make a knitted cap to match my knitted fingerless gloves, however, they all wanted to knit in the round, and I didn’t have the right sized needles for the patterns.
|The bobby pin is my stitch/row marker.|
I decided to search for crochet caps and found a free pattern here that seemed cute.
|Where the pattern starts to turn into a curved hat.|
|The hat done, except for the brim.|
|Starting the brim.|
I mostly followed the pattern, but I lost track of my count and had a few extra stitches, so I made some illegal (read: made up my own stitch) decreases.
|My big ole noggin.|
It’s not perfect because the decreases made larger holes than I would have liked. The pattern has you make two brims and stitch them together for strength and stability. I decided to only make one brim because it was stiff enough for my needs. We’ll see how it holds up!
I'm also not savvy enough to change colors like the original one does, so mine is all one color.
|You can see the brim has a little ridge- I like that part.|
I really enjoyed this project and I was able to complete it in a night. My hubby was certainly impressed and likes it on me.
|Me, trying to be mysterious!|
What do you think? Would you make one?
