Crocheting in the Round

Mix & Match Hats

with Stacey Trock
Crochet five unique toppers as you learn how to work in the round, stitch simple colorwork and even design your own beanie!

Learn to crochet in the round with expert guidance from author and pattern designer Stacey Trock! Get started by reviewing the chain and single crochet stitch and learn how to increase in the round as you work a basic beanie. Once you’ve got a handle on keeping consistent tension, experiment with easy colorwork to change up the look. Next, learn how to add earflaps by working in rows — without losing stitches! Add style and functionality to your hat with a trendy cloche brim, or create a slouchy beret with a cute button band detail. Then, personalize your hats with fun embellishments like pompoms and braided tassels, and even discover a simple way to tighten a hat that’s too big — no ripping required! Finally, make simple modifications to these designs and find out how to achieve the right fit for anyone’s head using the chart included with this class.
