Creamy Cute Toddler Sweater

It was an exhilarating experience! My first trial in the making of the sweater, a maiden attempt towards stitching. I felt all the emotions of thrill, fear, anxiety, to the happiness of triumph and pride of achievement.

A naive in stitching and cutting, I do not know the fundamentals of it. I can run a sewing machine for mending stitches, that’s all. This was an interesting experience. The final sweater was much closer to my expectation, but, it turned out to be slightly bigger in size for younger nephew, especially at the sleeves. However, I have nothing to worry, kids grow very quickly. So most likely within a year’s time, it will fit him. Having said that, it was indeed a learning for me. I picked up some understanding about fitting and stitching.

And I must admit, it is pretty impressive for the first attempt. What say?

Process:

I loved the Yarnspirations blog. It contains a lot of patterns with detailed instructions available for free. I was looking for a sweater for a 2-year-old toddler. Since this is my 1st attempt in crocheting a sweater (any size), I loved the instructions and the pictorial measurement. I simply fell in love with this hoodie sweater pattern. It is so darn cute that I wish I had one for myself. The yarn is completely different than the yarn listed on the pattern page. Thus, I focused entirely on the size chart rather than the written pattern. My nephew is 1-year-old but I chose to make it bigger by 1 size so that it fits well. It’s better to make a bigger size than work on exact size, which will be unfit in a couple of months. I made the modifications accordingly. It was quite a challenging task since I had very limited knowledge of making a sweater. The yarn thickness was different than the recommended yarn in the pattern. Thus, I used a different crochet hook. I have listed the modifications I did in case you are in my position.

  1. Initial chain count for the back is 56 to get 11.5″. I raised the length by .5″ more, so instead of 13.5″ it is 14″.
  2. Sleeves are 9″.
  3. The front is also increased by 0.5″ while the length is similar to the back with 14″. The initial chain count is around 44.
  4. The Shoulder width turned out more as 4″. I could reduce it to 3 and left more opening for the neck.
  5. I followed the hood instructions with 4 rows to create the open collar and then sewed all the parts.

 Caution Section:-

  1. Measurement is very important for making any outfit. This one turned out to be for the older nephew than the younger one.
  2. The yarn and crochet size selection can alter based on your availability and preference. Thus check out the complete sizing pictures from the link.
  3. It’s better to make a bigger size than work on exact size which will be unfit in a couple of months.
  4. Initial chain count and 3-4 rows of the pattern will give you the sizing clarity. This might require unwinding a couple of times till you get the desired size.
  5. After creating the Back, make sure you are always measuring the front 2 halves again n again. Especially, when you make the holes for buttons. I miscalculated, thus there is 1″ of an increased size in the front. I have tried to handle the situation while sewing up. Had I measured front along with the back, I would have saved this extra wool and also have gotten the perfect fit.
  6. Sleeves turn out a bit bigger than the body base. Thus after completing the back and the front then only proceed with sleeves.
  7. Since I felt hoodie will enclose the opening of the neck, I didn’t proceed. It is my first attempt at stitching and making of the sweater. I have made a lot of mistakes in the process.
  8. It is best if you use the same yarn ball to avoid imperfection in design.

Crochet Tiranga Loop Wristlet Mobile Cover - Knot My Designs

Tiranga Loop Wristlet Mobile Cover

Being an Indian, it was no brainer that I was planning to make something depicting my national flag. It’s independence day! after all. The day we got freedom from colonisation.

India has a rich culture and history. If analysed deeply, we can find that people from all over the world have attacked India but Indians were never travelled far to capture other countries in the world. We do have wars and victories within regions and over decades, to gain authority but we never conquered any country for centuries.

After more than 200 years of British suppression, India saw an uprising among people, who came together to fight for freedom. The Indian Freedom struggle continued for almost a century (from 1857 to 1947). All over India, various battles occurred over the century and finally, after World War II, we got freedom.

Process:

The process is series of Single Crochet stitches with the change in colour as per Indian Flag.  The rows depend on the total length of the phone and equally divided in 3 colours.

This mobile pouch does not have wristlet attached in the corner but designed to close up the cover and provide the handle.

Pouch:

R1: starting with Ch 34, join with Slip Stitch (SL ST )at the 1st chain. 

R2: CH 1, Single Crochet (SC) in each chain. Join at the 1st SC with SL ST. Total 34 SC.

Using Green colour yarn: Repeat R2 14 times. Turn the work inside out and slip stitch the base. Turn right side up and continue.

Using Cream colour yarn: Repeat R2 12 times.

Using Peach colour yarn: Repeat R2 12 times.

Use stitch markers to detect the centre of the cover on both sides. 

Loop:-

R1: In this case, SC up to 8 counts, skip 2 SC, ch 5, SC in 8 counts on the side and SC 18 counts.

R2: SC up to 8 counts, 5 sc in chain 5, SC in next 8 counts. and continue making the handle.

Handle:-

Row: In this case, Single crochet(SC) up to 9 counts, ch 60, SC for next 9 counts.

Caution Section:-

  1. The selection of the yarns 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 one crochet hook and changed my technique for different yarns.
  4. The number of initial chain counts differs as per points 1 and 2. Thus it is best to total up the number of rows required to make 1″ and avoid any rework later. 
  5. Frequent checks of the measurement will save a lot of time and energy.

Product Specifications:

Defining Dimensions:-

  • Height: 6.5″
  • Width: 3″

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

Optional Alterations:-

  • The side loop can be used to add any wristlet, strap made of suede leather, crochet, resin etc.
  • The buttoned loop can be switched to magnet button, snap-on button, press button, zip or an open pouch.
    • Depending on the tool, leave enough height for closure and mobile.
  • You can add additional hook or charms or keychains in the side loop along with strap.

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

Crochet This N That Sunglasses Cover Free Pattern for Female - kNot mY deSigns

This N That Sunglasses Cover

By now, your brain must have properly registered that we always go for the centre point in designing. Too many embellishments are overdone. Be it in fashion, interior decoration, art, designing etc. Keeping it simple and minimal is the modern mantra!

Bored with the same old plain black Bulky sunglasses cover, the customer asked me for a funky, colourful and bright cover. Something which was sturdy to hold the sunglasses and stylish to carry along. So, I chose a bright funky cotton yarn ombre and decided to follow a simple basic pattern. Voila! I achieved that.

Process:

The procedure to make this pouch is very simple. To give a closer stitch look, I have used a smaller crochet hook than what is generally recommended to make this sunglasses cover. The design is alternate Single Crochet Back Loop only (SCBLO) and Single Crochet Front Loop Only (SFLO).

R 1: Ch 11, Single Crochet (SC) in the 2nd ch from the hook, SC in each remaining ch to end; turn. (10 sts)
R 2 – 3: Ch 1, SC in each st across; turn. (10 sts)
R 4: Ch 1, SC in 10 sts across, SC 3 along the side, SC 10 across the foundation chain, SC 3 on the other side; join with a Sl st in first SC of the round, do not turn. (26 sts).

R 5: SCBLO, SCFLO around 26 stitches.  Continue this step until you reach the desired length of the cover.

R 6: Reverse Single Crochet/ Crab Stitch around to give that finishing touch to the edge.

You can create the edging with one round of SC only. It all depends on what kind of finishing look you prefer.

Brim with side loop:-

R1: Change the yarn to white and Chain 2; Double Crochet (DC) around; join at the beginning of the row.

R2: Front Post Double Crochet (FPDC) and Double Crochet alternatively around till the brim is 1″.

  • in the last row add a chain 3 in the end and join at the beginning of the row.

R3: Finish off with Reverse single crochet stitch or crab stitch to give a fine edging; Single Crochet in the ch 3 space; join at the beginning.

Brim without side loop:-

R1: Double crochet around with white yarn.

R2: Front Post Double Crochet (FPDC) and Double Crochet alternatively around till the brim is 1″.

R3: Finish off with Reverse single crochet stitch or crab stitch to give a fine edging.

Crochet Wristlet: Chain 60-70 based on the wristlet length. Sew the ends in the inside of the pouch. 

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 smaller than recommended one to give a tighter and closer stitch.

Product Specifications:

Defining Dimensions:-

  • Height: 6.5″
  • Width: 3″

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

Optional Alterations:-

  • The side loop can be used to add any wristlet, strap made of suede leather, crochet, resin etc.
  • The buttoned loop can be switched to magnet button, snap-on button, press button, zip or an open pouch.
    • Depending on the tool, leave enough height for closure and mobile.
  • You can add additional hook or charms or keychains in the side loop along with strap.

Crochet Contemporary Triangles Cell Phone Wristlet Pouch Free Pattern - kNot mY deSigns

Contemporary Triangles Cell Phone Wristlet Pouch

I stumbled upon the article Triangles in Design written by @larissameek. I agree with her completely. As per design, incorporating triangles in your art in the smart choice. The shape not only creates an attraction like the Pyramid of Giza or the Louvre Pyramid; they evoke modernism. “No matter how you look at a triangle, it points to something”, says Larissa. The edges focus your attention towards your art that makes it look contemporary.

I was looking forward to including triangles in my creations too. I achieved that while creating a crochet cell phone wristlet pouch.

Process:

I loved the Crochet iPhone Case by  Jeanette – LutterIdyl. The pattern is very simple. It contains single crochet stitch (SC) across the starting with chain 35. Total 35 SC.

I added a crocheted loop of 70 chains on one side of the mobile cover to form a wristlet band.  To close the opening, I stitched the press button inside the pouch. I didn’t go for the regular buttoned loop as it would have destroyed the aesthetic.

Triangle:-

upside down triangle is made in the last 8 rows.

Last Row 8: Start with 1 single crochet(SC) of the opponent colour(OC) and continue with the base colour(BC).

Last Row 7: 2 SC of OC and continue with BC.

Last Row 6: 3 SC of OC and continue with BC.

Last Row 5: 4 SC of OC, 4SC of BC, 1 SC of OC, and continue with BC.

Last Row 4: 5 SC of OC, 3SC of BC, 2 SC of OC, and continue with BC.

Last Row 3: 6 SC of OC, 2SC of BC, 3 SC of OC, and continue with BC.

Last Row 2: 7 SC of OC, 1SC of BC, 4 SC of OC, and continue with BC.

Last Row 1: 13SC of OC, and continue with BC.

Brim with side loop:-

R1: modify Last Row 2: 7 SC of OC, 1SC of BC, 4 SC of OC; continue with BC for- next 7 SC, ch 3, SC till the beginning of the row.

R2: modify Last Row 1: 13SC of OC; continue with BC for- next 7 SC, 3 SC on ch 3, SC till the beginning of the row.

Brim without side loop:-

R1: Change to BC, single crochet (SC) around. Total 35 SC.

Continue R1 for 4 rows and sew the end.

Crochet Wristlet: Chain 60-70 based on the wristlet length. Sew the ends in the inside of the pouch. 

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 techniques ranging from tight stitching style to medium to loose stitching styles.

Crochet Key Tag Miniature Ball - Knot My Designs

Key Tag Miniature Ball

A visit to Legoland drew my attention towards these tiny items. The depiction of the world in this shrunken avatar is creative, imaginative and impressive at the same time. I was supposed to make something creative to distinguish the car keys from the other bunch of keys when I remembered the Legoland.

Yes, we do have amigurumi (crocheted or knitted stuffed toy). It gives us the inspiration to create any item and not just the toys. I have been dabbling with bookmarks, another concept of making miniatures. For example, I made smaller version Harry Potter Hogwarts House Scarves or Dark Rose FlowerDachshund DogPansy Leaf, other Flowers, and Leaves.

Key Tag Miniature Ball was my first attempt to make a tiny version of something that is neither flashy to grab unwanted attention nor too infinitesimal that it gets lost in the crowd. I decided to crochet tags and after various attempts on working on flowers, leaves, petals, amigurumi owl, I decided to make a small ball. The bright red colour was easy to detect and the item is not going to occupy a lot of space while carrying.

Process:

With 3.5mm crochet hook, we are trying to make a small ball.

R 1: Magic Circle, ch 1, 6 Single Crochet (SC) in the round, join with Slip Stitch (Sl St) at the beginning of the stitch. (6 SC)

R 2: Ch 1, 2 SC in every SC, join the round with Sl St at the beginning of the stitch. (12 SC)

R 3: Ch 1, *1 SC in next SC, 2SC in next SC *, repeat *-* and join the round with Sl St at the beginning of the stitch. (18 SC)

R 4: Ch 1, *Single crochet 2 together (SC2Tog), SC in next SC *, repeat *-*and join the round with Sl St at the beginning of the stitch. (12 SC)

R 5: Ch 1, SC2Tog on every 2 SC, join the round with Sl St at the beginning of the stitch. (6 SC)

R 6: Pull up a string to form the tag string and sew in the ball.

Stuffing: Stuff cotton into the ball with help of throw pen or crochet hook to create that stuffed ball.

Caution Section:-

  1. The yarn quality matters in making stuffed amigurumi or miniature items. The preferred yarn choice should be cotton to give the required sturdiness.
  2. Crochet hook selection also matters. Based on your technique of tight stitch style or loose stitch style, choose the crochet hook. It can be different than the recommended one.
  3. I chose a smaller crochet hook to give a tighter and closer stitch. Also, I tried to stitch tightly than my usual stitch technique.

Product Specifications:

Defining Dimensions:-

  • Circumference of the ball = 1.75″
  • Tag Length: 4″

Optional Alterations:-

  • The sizes can be changed based on your requirement.
  • You can use different colours to create interesting balls.
  • Adding a tag is optional.
  • You can add tassels or pompom. Link to create pom-pom / DIY-Tassels.

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

Crochet Triangled Lens Pouch with Press Button - kNot mY deSigns

Triangled Lens Pouch with Press Button

Portability has become a priority in today’s technology development. Right from Bakelite ringer phone to walky-talky to cell phones, we are creating more and more compact devices to carry out all the functions. A portable device like a mobile phone is already replacing various other devices and tools around us and is becoming our all-in-one for capturing pictures, projecting data, saving data in the cloud, banking, recording health stats and more.

Having said that, it cannot be a master of all trades, look at the picture quality, for example. It cannot beat the perfection, the clarity, and sharpness accomplished by DSLR. But you have to make a choice between perfection and portability.

For me, I wanted to strike a balance between the two and achieve perfection with portability; and that is why I brought Amir 3 in 1 Clip-on Lenses to try out the macro, wide angle and fish-eyed techniques. You cannot a cellphone camera lens to capture a DSLR-like picture even if it has the best 1.55µm pixel size. These Clip-on Lenses help you to give a portable option to apply few other features similar to DSLR, and the press-button, ensure the safety of it.

This crochet Triangled Lens Pouch with Press Button can be customized into any size. It is also applicable to cover Cell phone covers, pillow covers, bags etc.

Process:

The package comes with a Microfiber pouch to protect the lenses but I want to carry extra precaution in providing sturdiness to the current pouch to protect them in my bag. With press button attached, the contents of the pouch will not fall off.

The pattern is simple. Single crochet stitches are used with 2 yarns to create triangle effect. Totally Triangles Multi-Use bag By Yarnspirations will provide you with the detailed procedure to create a bag.

I made it myself as it is not that complicated for an experienced crocheter like me.

Product Specifications:

Defining Dimensions:-

  • Height: 3″
  • Width: 2.5″

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

Optional Alterations:-

  • The side loop can be used to add any wristlet, strap made of suede leather, crochet, resin etc.
  • The buttoned loop can be switched to magnet button, snap-on button, press button, zip or an open pouch.
    • Depending on the tool, leave enough height for closure and mobile.
  • You can add additional hook or charms or keychains in the side loop along with strap.

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

Crochet Cherry Wherry Slouch Santa Hat Free Pattern for an adult woman for Christmas - kNot mY deSigns

Cherry Wherry Slouch Santa Hat

When any kid thinks of Christmas, he thinks of Santa Claus and gifts.There are conflicting stories regarding the origin of Santa’s Costume- the Red robe with white fur border was designed by Coca Cola company.

But why Christmas explains that it was Thomas Nast from Harper’s Weekly Magazine illustration, who designed the costume. “On January 1st, 1881, Harper’s Weekly published Nast’s most famous image of Santa, complete with a big red belly, an arm full of toys and smoking a pipe!” 

In continuation to making presents for my family on the auspicious occasion of Christmas, I decided to treat myself with a white-red colour combination hat. Initially, I thought to make a simple pom-pom Santa-Claus Hat. But then I changed my mind and decided to give it a twist. I can say this is my own pattern. It is a simple easy pattern that anyone can try making for themselves. It can be made of any colour combination you like. You can add either a crochet flower or pom-pom or both as an embellishment. I gave a slouchy effect with a broader edge which can be folded or unfolded and can be used as 2 different hat styles. One you can show-off as a slouchy beanie and another one you can fold around the brim to use as a simple beanie.

Process:

Ribbed Band:-

With white yarn, Chain 16. Back Loop Single crochet for 15 chains. Continue until the band reaches the 22-23″ (i.e. 72 rows). Join the ends. Run one round of single crochet at each single crochet edge of the band with the same yarn. Do not cut the yarn. Attach red yarn and start working on the base.

Note: The ribbing stretches by 2″-4″ depends on the crochet hook and yarn and your style.

Base:-

Double Crochet On every single crochet (72). Repeat this in every row till the hat is 3-4″ or repeat up till 10 rows. Start decreasing 6 stitches evenly till the end round contains 12 DC. This means that

1: Double Crochet Together (DCtog) every 5th and 6th DC in the row. Total DC left = 60.

2: Double Crochet Together (DCtog) every 4th and 5th DC in the row. Total DC left = 48.

3: Double Crochet Together (DCtog) every 3rd and 4th DC in the row. Total DC left = 36.

4: Double Crochet Together (DCtog) every 2nd and 3rd DC in the row. Total DC left = 24.

5: Double Crochet Together (DCtog) every 1st and 2nd DC in the row. Total DC left = 12. Sew the ends.

Caution Section:-

  1. The ribbed band size depends on the target age as the circumference is made after sewing the rectangular band.
  2. Also, depending on the yarn thickness and elasticity, and crochet hook the ribbed band will stretch between 1″-3″. 
  3. Make sure the number of rows ends in an even number.

Product Specifications:

Defining Dimensions:-

  • Height of the hat: 10″
  • 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.
  • You can put fur edging or tassels to give a different touch.

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

Fall Season Crochet Maple Wreath Free Pattern - Knot My Designs

Maple Wreath

“Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower.”
— Albert Camus

While crocheting the Maple Leaf Bookmark, I got the idea of making a maple wreath for my home. It is Halloween time again and the residents in my locality have already started the celebration and decorated their houses with a wreath. Even my neighbor has placed a big cream puffed wreath on her door while my door was empty.

Even my neighbor has placed a big cream puffed wreath on her door while my door was empty. I do have a Halloween wreath that I prepared last year, but I was thinking of something more than just decorating the entrance for that one particular month.

Here in North America, I find all the seasons very attractive, especially the Fall; when the trees shed leaves and everything is covered with hues of orange, red, yellow, rust, and green that brighten the environment. And I believe, only North America welcomes this season with so much pleasure.

Process:

I am always inclined to Irish Crochet pattern. They are intricate, detailed, attractive and very stylish to look. I was looking for Maple Leaf Pattern to make one for the coming Autumn season. A Maple wreath. I liked that Redheart captured that same look in their Maple Leaf Banner. I chose a multicolored yarn for giving that Autumn look.

  • Using the Irish Maple leaf pattern, I made 7 red maple leaves, 3 yellow maple leaves, and 15-16 ombre autumn maple leaves.
  • Bought the wire wreath frame, berries from the store.
  • Rearranged all the leaves around the frame and started sewing to stick.
    • You can use green paddle wire to tie them on the wreath.
  • Hanging Loop: Chain 11 around the frame at the top. Join at the beginning. Single Crochet in each chain stitch to give stability.
    • You might sew the bottom with the wire to secure the placement of the hanging loop.

Product Specifications:

Defining Dimensions:-

  • Wire Wreath Frame size: 12″
  • Maple leaves length: 5″-6″

Optional Alterations:-

  • You can include some green leaves too.
  • Pine cones can be added too.
  • Check out the store for more decoration ornaments.
  • You can use paddle wire to fix your leaves to the wreath frame or sew them from behind.

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

Winter/Fall Seasoned Crochet Mom-Daughter Textured Slouchy Hat Free Pattern - Knot My Designs

Mom-Daughter Textured Slouchy Hat

I tried making different patterns for a beautiful mum and her lovely daughter, and I was attracted towards the puff stitched slouchy hat made by Vickie Howell. I almost created the half of the hat for the daughter and then I realised the gaps in between would not be good to protect the head from cold air. Sure it looks wonderful but my focus is that the hat should do the basic function of protecting your head and then look good to the eye!

Crochet Free Winter/Fall Pink Mom-Daughter Textured Slouchy Hat Pattern - Knot My Designs

So, I switched to Cabled Textured pattern from Yarnspiration, which I had already listed on my to-do list, they are close stitched and they look beautiful.

Beauty for the brain!

Process:

The pattern is divided into 2 parts. One is the ribbed band and another is the body of the hat which is joined seeming to form this textured hat. The stitches included are Single Crochet (SC), Double Crochet (DC), Front Post Double Crochet (FPDC) and Back Post Double Crochet (BPDC) along with Slip Stitch (SL ST) and chains (Ch).

Ribbed Band:-

R1: Starting with Ch 10+ (depending on mum or daughter), SC from 2nd hook. Total 9 SC+.

R2: (Working on Back Loop only), SC in every SC. Total 9 SC+.

Repeat R2 till you get the desired length.

Stop at an even row. For the daughter, you can stop in between 56-64 rows. For Mum, you can stop in between 60-72 rows depending on your yarn thickness.

With SL ST, sew the edges and Ch 1. Continue with the same yarn to form a seamless body of the hat.

Remember: the texture hat pattern is formed in multiples of 5. Thus your ribbed band should stop at even number and multiples of 5.

Remember: to measure the width of the ribbed band as this will give to the final height of the hat. Thus, if the ribbed band is 2″ then the body needs to be 7″ to get 9″ height for an adult woman. 

Body:-

Since the ribbed band consumes 2″+, the body of the hat should be 7″ to form a 9″ height of the hat for an adult woman.

Calculation of the body: Final height of the hat – ribbed band height.

R1: Ch 1, SC around every SC edge. Join at the beginning SC with an SL ST. Total SC should be the total number of ribbed rows.

R2: Ch 2, DC on every SC; Join at the beginning DC with SL ST.

R3: Ch 2, 3 FPDC on next 3 DC, 2 BPDC on next 2 DC. Repeat across and join at the beginning DC with SL ST.

R4: Ch 2, 1 BPDC on 1st FPDC, 3 FPDC on next 3 stitches, 2 BPDC on next 3 stitches. Repeat across and join at the beginning DC with SL ST.

R5: Ch 2, 2 BPDC on 2 stitches, 3 FPDC on next 3 stitches, 2 BPDC on next 3 stitches. Repeat across and join at the beginning DC with SL ST.

R6: Ch 2, 1 FPDC on 1st BPDC, 2 BPDC on next 2 stitches, 3 FPDC on next 3 stitches. Repeat across and join at the beginning DC with SL ST.

R7: Ch 2, 2 FPDC on 2 stitches, 2 BPDC on next 2 stitches, 3 FPDC on next 3 stitches. Repeat across and join at the beginning DC with SL ST.

Repeat R3-R7 till you get 5″ or more.

Remember: The Body also needs to be recalculated as we are working bottom up. For an adult woman, if the ribbed band is 2″ then the body needs to be 7″. In this 7″, 3″ should be focused on forming the top base of the hat. Rest 4″ will be the height of the hat body. 

Or if you want to avoid so much calculation, then work on the same instruction for 7″ and sew at the top to make a slouchy hat.

I worked on the slouchy part. So, I repeated R3-R7 till I reached 7″. and sew at the top to create the slouchy effect.

To decrease the base of the hat, you can follow the written pattern of Yarnspirations.

Mom:-

I made the ribbed base with 13 ch and Single Crochet Back Loop Only (SCBLO). End with even row and sew with Slip Stitch (SL ST). I made the base 18″ length, which when joined, forms an 18″ circumference without stretching. It depends on the crochet hook and yarn texture.  The hat expands and thus this ribbed base would be smaller than normal hat circumference i.e. 20″-22″.

The hat size is 9″ and it is sewn at the top.

Ensure the row ends in an even number. The pattern has 3 Front Post Double Crochet (FPDC) and 2 Back Post Double Crochet (BPDC) and a chain 2 at beginning of every row.

Daughter:-

I made the ribbed base with 10 ch and Single Crochet Back Loop Only (SCBLO). End with even row and sew with Slip Stitch (SL ST). I made the base 14″ length, which when joined, forms an 18″ circumference without being stretched. It also depends on the crochet hook and yarn texture.  The hat expands thus this ribbed base would be smaller than normal hat circumference i.e. 19″.

The hat size is 8″ and it is sewn at the top.

Make sure the row ends in an even number. The pattern has 3 Front Post Double Crochet (FPDC) and 2 Back Post Double Crochet (BPDC) and a chain 2 at beginning of every row.

Caution Section:

  • Multiples of 8. 4 FPDC and 4BPDC.
  • I will suggest that it is better to rework initially while setting up the crown of the head. Typically, the crown diameter for an adult head should be between 6″-6.5″. As this will grow, it’ll be a comfortable fit for an adult head.
  • For edging the last row, you can change the crochet hook to a smaller size to give a tighter set. But then it should depend on the face shape too, or best is to follow the same hook throughout.
  • Remember the calculation. The body of the hat = Total height of the hat – Ribbed base.
  • To form the body of the hat with decrease base size, you also need to calculate( depending on the target age group).
    • The rest of the height of the hat-body = Total body height of the hat – 3″ (for the decreased base of the hat).

In the end, the hat should measure 22″-23″. The wool stretches on prolonged use. so 22″-23″ is good for more fit and better protection from the cold.

Product Specifications:

Defining Dimensions of Adult Hat:-

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

Defining Dimensions of Daughter Hat:-

  • Height: 8″
  • Circumference: 19″

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. White or brown pom-pom, fur faux. 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!!
