Tasseled Slouchy Bonnet Hat

Winter / Fall Seasoned Crochet Tasseled Slouchy Bonnet Hat Free Pattern for an adult woman - kNot mY deSigns

Tasseled Slouchy Bonnet Hat

Ever confused while naming your product? I was. It took me 3-4 attempts to finally come up with the name – Tasseled Slouchy Bonnet Hat.

At first, I decided to name it as Women’s Pixie hat. Then I renamed to Women’s Pixie Slouchy Hat because of the slouchy effect. Later, it was rechristened as Women’s Pixie Bonnet Hat but then, it is neither a pixie hat nor a bonnet hat. It is a combination of the two with a slouchy effect at the base.

Unlike pixie hat with the straight split at the base, I gave it a round base with a split in the end. It resembles more closely to a Slouchy Bonnet than a Slouchy Pixie. Thus the name.

Process:

I was looking for Pixie hat patterns and I stumbled upon Ganymede Hat by Sheila Toy Stromberg.  This was the exact pattern that I was visualizing in my head. A Pixie hat but without pointy end with bonnet split in the back. Her Ganymede Hat pattern helped me to understand the process. Her Facebook page is creative and welcoming to follow too.

The customer shared a specific colour and design of the pixie hat that she wanted. Thus, I followed the above pattern up to Row 17 and then created a different edging.

Since I used 6mm crochet hook, I added one more row of extension with a final count of 64 DC. 

Edging:-

R 18: Ch 3, *Puff Stitch¹, skip the next stitch, repeat from * till the end of the row. Complete the row with DC  on 3rd ch of the last row, turn.

R 19 – R 20: repeat R 18.

R 21: Finish the hat with one round Single Crochet (SC) around covering the base of the split.

[1 – Puff Stitch – Yarn over, insert the hook in the defined stitch, draw up a loop  (a total of three loops on the hook), yarn over and insert the hook in the same stitch and draw up a loop (a total of 5 loops on the hook). Yarn over and draw through first 4 loops on the hook, yarn over and draw through the last 3 loops on the hook.]

Finishing:-

Continue making ties for pixie hat and add tassels. The ties length is 5″, which I felt shorter than I anticipated. Thus I added tassels to give a more fuller look.

DIY Yarn Tassels is a great link to follow for first timers.

Caution Section:-

  1. The selection of the yarn is important. The thickness and elasticity of the yarn and the chosen crochet hook determines the design.
  2. Also, your technique impacts the smoothness or finished look. Everyone has different technique ranging from tight stitching style to medium to loose stitching styles.
  3. In case, you are unable to get the required chosen coloured yarn of same thickness, you can change the crochet hook and your technique as you go around, to get the seamless look. For me, I chose crochet hook larger than recommended one to give a free flowing and open stitch.
  4. Since the number of rows alters due to different yarn sizes and crochet hooks, it is best to total up the number of rows required to make 1″. Based on this calculation, the position of the edge can be set.
  5. The positioning of the edging size along with the knowledge of the gauge will reduce the rework.

 

Product Specifications:

Defining Dimensions:-

  • Height of the hat: 9″
  • Circumference: 20″-22″

The sizes could be altered based on the count of the stitches for the rows.

Optional Alterations:-

  • You can increase the base diameter to give a more slouchy feel. Also, increase the height of the beanie.
  • You can add pom-pom matching the colour with the edging or the base colour. There are different ways to create pom-pom.
  • You can attach flowers, beads or a bow made of crochet, plastic, suede leather etc to give cuteness to the hat.
  • You can put fur edging or tassels or crab stitch edging to give a different touch.

Remember: do not over accessorize it. This hides the beauty of the pattern itself. Believe in elegance simplicity!!

Fall/Spring Season Crochet Black Slouch Beanie Free Pattern for an adult woman - Knot My Designs

Black Slouch Beanie

Men are from Mars and Women are from Venus and both landed on the planet Earth to create a new whole world!

Fashion was completely different for both men and women; and both the styles fused together to form a 3rd gender in fashion, Uni-sex. This stood for commonality in the apparel like trousers, shirts, tees, beanies, caps, scarves, blazer, tuxedo. Some link this fusion of styles with equality and same status for both.

For all these years, though feminine couture has held the fashion empire high, the masculine trends are slowly catching up.

I created a Black Slouch Beanie for the female customer where I decided to use men’s slouch beanie as my base design idea.

Process:

The process is simple. It is series of Double Crochet Stitch (DC) and few Front Post Double Crochet Stitch (FPDC), and Back Post Double Crochet Stitch (BPDC). The beanie contains 2 parts:

  1. Basic Beanie
  2. Additional Brim/Edge

Basic Beanie:-

Starting with a magic circle, make a basic beanie of DC stitches. The beanie height measures 9″.

Additional Brim/Edge:-

For creating an edge, I have used FPDC and BPDC respectively and continued following the stitches for 2-3 rows until the edge measures 1″.

Total Slouch Beanie measures 10″.

Note: You can play around and alter the sizes as per your preference. The brim size can easily be extended to 2″ or increase/decrease basic beanie to get you desired slouchy effect. 

Product Specifications:

Defining Dimensions:-

  • Height of the hat: 9″-10″
  • Circumference: 21″-22″

The sizes could be altered based on the count of the stitches for the rows.

Optional Alterations:-

  • You can increase the base diameter to give a more slouchy feel. Also, increase the height of the beanie.
  • You can add pom-pom matching the color with the edging or the base color. There are different ways to create pom-pom.
  • You can attach flowers, beads or a bow made of crochet, plastic, suede leather etc to give cuteness to the hat.
  • You can put fur edging or tassels to give a different touch.

Winter/Fall Seasoned Crochet Blue Backpost Slouch Beanie Free Pattern for an adult woman - kNot mY deSigns

Blue BackPost Slouch Beanie

In the previous blog posts, I have been talking about gender-based fashion – feminine, masculine and unisex. But fashion is not only about “Shrink and Pink”, “Cool Blue Men”, Confused Identity Unisex, it is so much more. Fashion is change. As change is the only inevitable constant, same is with the fashion. It survives, breaths and brings joy when it challenges thoughts, outbreaks the defined set patterns and innovates new style.

So what is Fashion for you?

“To some, fashion is an art form. To others, it is almost like a religion. For most people, though, fashion is a method of utilising clothing, accessories, and grooming to show or hide something about yourself. Fashion can be an extension of your personality, allowing you to introduce parts of your personality to the world without saying a word. Conversely, the way you dress can also conceal parts of your personality or allow you to play a role: Clothing can be a costume, a uniform or a proclamation of independence. In 2016, fashion is whatever you want it to be. ” ( as described in about style).

Following the mantra of defining oneself through fashion, I selected a pattern, which will give a casual yet bold look to the customer who is both mellow and bold in nature.

Process:

The process is series of Double Crochet Stitch (DC) and Back Post Double Crochet stitch (BPDC). The beanie can be divided into 2 parts -> base and body.

Base:-

Start with a magic circle, ch2 and make 12 DC. Continue increasing by 12 for 6-7 rows and join at ch 2 of every row. To give a more slouchy look I made 84 DC in the last row of the base.

Remember: it should depend on the yarn thickness and recommended crochet hook. 

Body:-

1: ch 2, BPDC on 84DC each, join in the 1st BPDC.

2: ch 2, DC on each 84 BPDC. join in the 1st DC.

repeat 1 and 2 till you get the desired length. You can end the brim/edge with one row of Single Crochet or Slip stitch.

Measurement: circumference = 22″ , height = 10″.

Caution Section:-

  • FPDC and BPDC required a bigger crochet hook or loose stitching technique to get a flowy basketweave pattern.
  • Depending on the texture of the yarn, you can either choose a larger crochet hook other than recommended one or you can loosely stitch FPDC and BPDC.
  • For edging the last row, you can change the crochet hook to a smaller size to give a tighter set.

Product Specifications:

Defining Dimensions:-

  • Height of the hat: 10″
  • Circumference: 22″

The sizes could be altered based on the count of the stitches for the rows.

Optional Alterations:-

  • You can increase the base diameter to give a more slouchy feel. Also, increase the height of the beanie.
  • You can add pom-pom matching the colour with the edging or the base colour. There are different ways to create pom-pom.
  • You can attach flowers, beads or a bow made of crochet, plastic, suede leather etc to give cuteness to the hat.
  • You can put fur edging or tassels to give a different touch.

Unisex Crochet Santa Claus's Hat Free Pattern - kNot mY deSigns

Santa Claus’s Hat

Men have a defined sense of fashion and it stays with them throughout and rarely changes. No external factor including women can change this. It could be almost a struggle to bring change in their fashion and make them try out something new. This phenomenon, however, changes in the case of technology. In fact, men would conform to latest updates and gadgets in the market.

Women, on the other hand, embellish their clothing with a lot of addendums like a pom-pom, ruffles, tassels, frills, lace, ribbons, which is seemingly absent in men’s clothing. And I can not disagree further. Any accessory would be a contrast to their masculinity and feel lesser manly.  However, there is an exception to this when it comes to the pompom on the red and white Santa Claus Hat. After all, it’s Christmas Eve!; the festive season, when everyone is anxiously waiting for gifts. Kids are lingering around for Santa to come and hand over their presents, which they have wished for! While everyone is being impish wearing Santa Hat, Elf hat, elf shoes and reindeer horns, men in the family have to join too.

Merry Christmas Everyone! HO! HO! HO!

Process:

The procedure contains Double Crochet (DC), Half Double Crochet (HDC) and a big pom-pom in 3 sections.

  1. Body
  2. Brim
  3. Pompom

Body:-

R1: Started with a magic circle, and 8 Double Crochet stitches (DC).Total 8 DC.

R2: Instead of increasing 2 DC on every DC in next row, I increased by 4 stitches in the 2nd row. *2 DC in next DC, DC in next DC*; repeat *-*. Total 12 DC.

R3: Repeat the row. Total 12 DC.

R4: *2 DC in next DC, DC in next 2 DC*; repeat *-*. The rows are increased by 4. Total 16 DC.

R5: Repeat R4. Total

R6: *2 DC in next DC, DC in next 3 DC*; repeat *-*. The rows are increased by 4. Total 20 DC.

R7: Repeat R6. Total

R8: *2 DC in next DC, DC in next 4 DC*; repeat *-*. The rows are increased by 4. Total 24 DC.

R9: *2 DC in next DC, DC in next 5 DC*; repeat *-*. The rows are increased by 4. Total 28 DC.

R10: *2 DC in next DC, DC in next 6 DC*; repeat *-*. The rows are increased by 4. Total 32 DC.

Continue increasing every row by 4 till your hat circumference is 22-23. I have increased gradually till 84 DC.

Note: The total counts should be greater than 60 for an adult hat. It depends on the yarn, chosen crochet hook and your strength applied in each stitch.

R11: Continued 84DC for 8 more rows.

Brim:-

R1: Changed the yarn to white and start creating the brim by using Half Double Crochet (HDC) in each DC.

R2: Continue it till the brim length is 2-3″ i.e. 8-11 HDC.

Finishing: Cut the yarns and sew all the stranded yarns.

Diff Brim Style: Instead of Single Crochet (SC) or HDC, you can go for alternate Front Post Double Crochet (FPDC), Back Post Double Crochet (BPDC) to create a ribbed brim. No edging.

Pom-Pom:-

Create a big pompom and attach to the starting row.

Product Specifications:

Defining Dimensions:-

  • Height for an adult man hat: 14″
  • Circumference: 23″-24″

The sizes could be altered based on the count of the stitches for the rows.

Optional Alterations:-

  • For edging, you can use white fur, Crab Stitch or Slip Stitch.
  • The complete Santa hat can be made using DC with the last row of edging.
  • Instead of white yarn, you can use white fur yarn to create the brim.
  • You can insert the Santa Belt in the intersection of red and white yarn.
    • For that reduce the Red yarn rows by 4 and DC across using black yarn. Total 84 Black Yarn DC.
    • Create Santa Belt Buckle and stitch it to the hat.

Remember: do not over accessorise it. This hides the beauty of the pattern itself. Believe in elegance simplicity!!

Winter/Fall Seasoned Crochet Pista Twisted Hat Free Pattern for an adult woman - kNot mY deSigns

Pista Twisted Hat

Some colours are just eye catching, and you pick them without giving it any a second thought. The Pista ombre yarn is that one colour for me. It is so colourful, bright and yet pleasant to eyes. I wanted to try out something different with this different yarn, perhaps a ribbed pattern since it was the first time I was trying to make a stylish hat.

Being a newcomer or beginner in the world of crochet, it was my first risky task to make a crochet hat with a complex textured pattern.

Process:

I found Do the Twist Hat – Yarnspirations pattern while browsing for a ribbed hat. The new stitch that I learned is Front Post Double Crochet and Back Post Double Crochet. Using these stitches, a beautiful twisted pattern has appeared.

Pointer: I did not change the pattern and pretty much followed the instructions row by row. The pattern in the blog was for the teens, though. I prefer making hats that cover ear to ear, to keep it warm in winters. Thus, I suggest to the twisted part again or increase the few rows in the end before reducing the stitch counts.

Thus, I suggest to the twisted part again or increase the few rows in the end before reducing the stitch counts.

This crochet free pattern Hat can be worn everywhere; office, brunch, even shopping. Because of the colour and style, I name this hat as Pista Twisted Hat.

Product Specifications:

Defining Dimensions:-

  • Height: 9″
  • Circumference: 20″-22″

The sizes can be altered based on the count of the stitches for the rows.

Optional Alterations:-

  • You can increase the base diameter to give a more slouchy feel. Also, increase the height of the beanie.
  • You can add pom-pom matching the colour with the edging or the base colour. There are different ways to create pompom.
  • You can attach flowers, beads or a bow made of crochet, plastic, suede leather etc to give a more feminine touch.

Remember: do not over accessorise it. This hides the beauty of the pattern itself. Believe in elegance simplicity!!

Winter/Fall Seasonsed Pink Crochet 2 layer Twisted Hat / Beanie Free Pattern for an adult woman - kNot mY deSigns

2 Layer Twisted Hat

A customer had approached me to get a contrast winter hat for herself; something to go with her black-white checkered winter coat. Her other criteria were something that looks chic, sombre and professional. We are talking an accessory here. It wouldn’t be justified if it isn’t different from the usual pattern like textured.

She later requested for a pair of winter gloves to go with the hat too. This basically meant that I had to look at a hat-gloves combo that would match with her winter coat. After I decided on the colour, I prepared a pair of Texting Gloves for her.

I thank to free patterns from Do the Twist Hat – Yarnspirations. I loved the pattern. It was a right tick in the check box; elegant yet stylish beanie. I followed the pattern with a few modifications to increase the height to 8-9″ from bottom to top of the hat. As per the pattern, the size is suitable for teens, while the requirement was for an adult woman.

Process:

This hat is divided into 4 sections. You need to take a bottom-top approach.

  1. The first part involves preparing the ribbed band for the base depending on the size of the head.
  2. The second part includes 1 FPDC and 9 BPDC.
  3. The 3rd part is the continuation with 6 FPDC, 6 BPDC each.
  4. And the last part is same as per the pattern provided. I did not add any pom-pom to give it a more professional look.

I call this crochet hat as a 2 Layer Twisted Hat as the pattern is repeated twice, to give a look of 2 layers. The twisted look is because of the rows of FPDC and BPDC.

Ribbed Band:-

R1: chain 13

R2: Single Crochet (SC)  from the 2nd chain. total 12 sc.

R3: SC in back loops only (SCBLO)

Continue R3 till the size is nearly 18″. Join the band using Slip stitch (SS). Do not cut the yarn. Total rows – 80.

Note: The ribbed count should be multiples of 10 and the rows ended in an even number. 

Twisted Hat:-

R1: With the same yarn Chain 2 and continue making Double Crochet on the sides of each of the SC. Total- 80 DC.

Repeat R2-R11 depending on the height of the hat.

**Remember: Measure the height of the hat including the band. If the height is nearly 6″-6.5″, you can proceed to reduce the number stitches for the crown. I decided to continue one more round, which is why the hat is named as the 2-layer twisted.

Reducing the ST count for the crown.

Caution Section:-

  1. The thickness and elasticity of the yarn and the chosen crochet hook determines the Lacey effects.
  2. Also, your technique impacts the smoothness or finished look. Everyone has different technique ranging from tight stitching style to medium to loose stitching styles.
  3. Depending on points 1-2, your number of counts for the ribbed band and Twist layering will differ. 
  4. Measuring the circumference and height of the hat to avoid surprises and rework. 
  5. FPDC and BPDC usually require either loose stitch technique or bigger crochet hook to maintain the fineness and seamless flow throughout the hat.

Product Specifications:

Defining Dimensions:-

  • Height of the hat: 9″
  • Circumference: 23″

The sizes could be altered based on the count of the stitches for the rows.

Optional Alterations:-

  • You can increase the base diameter to give a more slouchy feel. Also, increase the height of the beanie.
  • You can add pom-pom matching the colour with the edging or the base colour. There are different ways to create pom-pom.
  • You can attach flowers, beads or a bow made of crochet, plastic, suede leather etc to give cuteness to the hat.
  • Try to use fur edging or tassels to give a different touch.
  • Rather than 1 yarn colour, you can have a base colour and contrast colour fusion to make this hat.
    • I will suggest that a base colour hat with one row of edging and pom-pom of the contrast colour.
    • With Pink yarn as base colour; Cream, White, shades of Brown will give a different taste and maintain the same elegance.

Remember: do not over accessorise it. This hides the beauty of the pattern itself. Believe in elegance simplicity!!
