Easy Crochet Ribbed Hat Pattern

Easy Crochet Ribbed Hat Pattern
Allen Williams I wasn’t expecting to crochet any hats today but this one snuck in to my afternoon. We started Veteran’s Day (Remembrance Day here in Canada) by visiting Michael’s Crafts Store as it was having a two-day sale. Not wanting to take an MSG-induced nap, I decided to put this green and blue variegated yarn to use. I made the hat as suggested in the pattern (size K hook, worsted weight yarn) but I found the hat a bit too tight for a normal adult head. You can really see the crocheted rib style in this photo (and I love the colors in this variegated yarn): It’s only mid-afternoon so I’m thinking there’s time to make one more hat before dinner (assuming I’m not distracted now by blogging). Back to crocheting for me but I hope everyone is enjoying this public day of recognition for the armed forces, regardless of how you are spending the time. Although a thank-you is not nearly enough for the work you’ve done and continue to do, I hope you know how much it means to me! Related:  HatsCrochet 4

Crochet Owl Hat Pattern in Newborn-Adult Sizes By popular demand, I am happy to present the crochet pattern for larger owl hats! But first, lets go over a couple of frequently asked questions. Q: What is a Magic Ring? A: I like to start all my hats with a magic ring. The magic ring can take some getting used to, but once you get the hang of it, it really is a great way to start crocheting in rounds. Q: Where do I start my rounds? A: Always start your round in the same stitch as your chain 2. I will let this picture do the explaining. Q: Where do I join my rounds? A: Always join to first DC, NOT your chain 2.
