Warm Ribbed Crochet Stripped Women’s Hat
Here is a hat I designed for my 92 year old Mother-in-law who kept losing her hats. She just loved it. I was so happy with the design and how quickly it works up. The hat is crochet in the round and can be increased or decreased for sizing. It is extremely warm.
Fits teen/adult 19-22” head ( can be decreased or increased )
½ skein each yellow & brown worsted weight yarn
Sl St- Slip Stich
Dc- Double Crochet
Fpdc- Front Post Double Crochet
Bpdc- Back Post Double Crochet
Hat is worked in the round and size can be adjusted by adding rounds or decreasing rounds.
Round 1: Work 12 dc into a magic circle. (12)
Round 2: 2 dc into each dc, join with sl st (24)
Round 3: (dc in next dc, 2 dc) around, join with sl st (36)
Round 4: (dc in next 2 dc, 2 dc) around, join with sl st (48)
Round 5: ( dc in next 3 dc, 2 dc) around, join with sl st (60)
Round 6: ( dc in next 4 dc, 2 dc) around, join with sl st ( 72)
If you want your hat bigger, this is where you would add more stitches to increase the rounds. ( dc in next 5 dc, 2 dc) around.
Round 7: for this round work a fpdc and bpdc into each dc from previous round.
Round 8-10 repeat round 7
Round 11 – for this round you will continue to work a fpdc and bpdc into each dc from previous rounds, but you will add your 2nd color in each stitch. Start with the main color and start your fpdc or bpdc,* ( yo, insert hook, yo and pull up, you will have 3 loops on your hook. Drop your main color and yo with your contrast color and finish off the dc with yo, pull through 2 loops, yo and pull through 2 loops.)* For your next stitch, drop your contrast color and pick up your main color and continue in the same manner for each stitch * to* See pics below
Round 12-13 : same as round 7 using main color. (drop you contrast color, but leave in place, you will pick this color up again in round 14)
Round 14: repeat round 11
Round 15-18 repeat round 7
Round 19: dc all around ( no fpdc or bpdc on this round)
