Basic Skills Necessary:

  • hdc, FPdc and basic pattern reading skills.

Pattern Description:

I have very thick hair and a large head. I wanted a hat that had plenty of room for my thick hair but didn't feel tight around my face. This hat is roomy around the crown but still stays put.

The stripes are achieved by switching yarn colors at the beginning of desired rows. The red and blue hat shown was made alternating I Love This Yarn from Hobby Lobby. I used a light yellow (almost cream), deep red and deep marine blue. The effect is an antique patriotic theme that I really like. Enjoy!

About the designer

I was 3. It was the most beautiful mud pie, complete with rose petal decos and perfectly dusted with pollen. This was my first "craft."
