The Joy of Crochet

There is so many amazing patterns out there! I love my new project, and  I can’t wait to finish it!

There is something magical in hats and scarfs. Ever since I started to crochet I loved to make them and enjoyed the outcomes.

Today I am sharing my find. The pattern has been designed by Rheatheylia (AIM screen name). Her website contains plenty of beautiful and free patterns, so do go and check it out:

In the meanwhile, here is the hat pattern:

Divine Hat

Divine Hat
I will post photo updates as soon as finish it. You can see completed work here.

Items Needed:
Worsted Weight Yarn (you can make the hat as long as you like, I started with 1 skein)

6mm/J hook for body
5mm/ H hook for ribbing

Gauge

3 dc with J hook=1″ Height isn’t important because you can just add on rounds

Abbreviations

Sc – single crochet
Dc – double crochet
Fpdc – front post double crochet
Bpdc – Back posts double crochet

Excellent tutorial for Fpdc and Bpdc.

To join each round: join with slip stitch around the first front post double crochet of previous round (or beginning ch 2 of the first round), ch 2, then fpdc down into the same front post double crochet you just did the slip stitch to (again, this will be a ch 2 for the beginning round). This pushes the ch 2 behind the fpdc you just made (ignore the ch 2, it doesn’t exist). This isn’t necessary, but it looks better than a standard ch2 and makes the join less obvious.

Body (with 6mm/J hook)

1. 15 dc in Adjustable Ring
2. Fpdc in every dc (15)
3. Fpdc in every fpdc, dc in the space between fpdcs (15 fpdc, 15 dc)
4. Fpdc in every fpdc, dc in the first space between fpdc and dc (15 fpdc, 15 dc)
5. Fpdc in every fpdc, 2 dc in the first space between fpdc and dc (15 fpdc, 15 2dc)
6. Fpdc in every fpdc, 2 dc in the first space between fpdc and dc (15 fpdc, 15 2dc)
7. Fpdc in every fpdc, 3 dc in the first space between fpdc and dc (15 fpdc, 15 3dc)
8. Fpdc in every fpdc, 3 dc in the first space between fpdc and dc (15 fpdc, 15 3dc)
9. Fpdc in every fpdc, 3 dc in the first space between fpdc and dc (15 fpdc, 15 3dc)
10-16. Fpdc in every fpdc, 4 dc in the first space between fpdc and dc (15 fpdc, 15 4dc) carry on with more rounds, if you would like to make the hat longer)

Ribbing (with 5mm/H hook)

17. Sc around (75 sts)
18. Dc Around (75 sts)
19. Fpdc in one st, bpdc in the next, around (75 sts)
