Granny and the Stars

I Love this hat!  Don’t get me wrong I love other hats but this is one hat I actually look good in.  Yes, I am one of those weird people who is forced to wear hats for function and not fashion.  Granted I may not actually look good in this one either, but I love the hat so much that I just don’t care. 🙂Granny Square Star Stitch SlouchyI made this hat to be very loose and relaxed fitting on my head, that way if I wanted to take it off later I would not worry about hat head.

PLEASE don’t get discouraged from all the different links in this pattern.  These are simply great resources!

This is a fun hat that is first started by making Granny Squares by Simply Collectible Crochet, then you will join the squares by using the Invisible Seam Stitch tutorial by Oomabawka Designs and finally you will finish the hat with a star stitch.  If you are not sure how the star stitch is completed simply head to Moogly Blog for her great tutorial!

So enough gibber jabber, on with the pattern!

Granny Square Star Stitch Slouchy

I eliminated some of the repeating rows to make the child hat not as slouchy

Granny Square Band :

Work a total of 8 granny squares following the pattern by: Simply Collectible Crochet

I highly recommend finishing off all the ends prior to joining the squares together.

Join the granny squares following the photo tutorial by: Oombawka Designs Crochet

Fishing edge on granny squares, again follow directions from: Simply Collectible Crochet only your stitch count will be (13 x 8 = 104) Working 13SC across each of the 8 granny squares.  *I chose to work 2 rows of back loop single crochet in what would be the last rows of the hat, and only 1 row on edge that will be worked for the hat*

Hat :

Visit Moogly Blog for the Star Stitch tutorial if you are needing a bit of help.

*Special Note:  Moogly Blog pulls up a total of 6 loops on the hook, where with this pattern you will only pull up 5 loops on your hook.

Standard Star Stitches are traditionally done in multiples of 2+1.  In this pattern the 5th loop that will pull up in the final star stitch will be done in the same as joining.  This helps to disguise the seam that would normally appear.

Crochet Military Inspired Hat – FREE Pattern!!

This site contains affiliate ads and I may be compensated if you purchase something…..which means more FREE patterns for you!

This pattern was originally inspired by the Navy Dress Cap, however, you could easily change the colors and customize it for a police department!

Military HatFor the FREE pattern for the Police Badge click HERE

This Military Inspired Hat is completely FREE, but…..

if you are feeling generous and would like to make a donation, just below is a link where you can make a donation to the Peyton Dempsey Fund.  I know their family would appreciate any and all donations!

Peyton is a brave little girl was born with a rare disease called MMIH.  There is no cure and most children don’t make it to their first birthday.  Peyton is now 3.  

Military Hat

Their is a bit of a story that goes with this hat so hang with me while I tell it.  It all started with a simple knee surgery just to see what was going on, nothing big; should be doing jumping jacks in a day or two.  Well, instead I ended up in a straight leg brace for 6 weeks.  Along with that I had to be strapped into a machine that bent my leg in and out …….for 6 hours a day!!!

Well this lead to a lot of free time to peruse online looking for a new crochet project.  Well, I came across this most beautifully done military style hat and contacted the seller asking her if she would consider selling me the pattern; as I had a Cousin in the Navy and they were expecting a little girl in a few months and just had to make that hat for them!!!  She informed me that the pattern was not for sale.

Well after a bit of pouting I grabbed my yarn and hook and decided that I would see what happened. During the process of making the hat I tried several different brands of yarn, first was Caron Simply Soft.  This did not work as it is such a soft yarn that it did not hold the shape well at all; also with the repeated ripping out the yarn got really fuzzy really fast. Finally, I settled with Loop and Tread Yarn.  This thread was soft and yet still durable enough that it endured the reworking of the pattern and still looked nice in the end.

Then there was the countless hours of crocheting and frogging trying to get it right.  Among the numerous issue was trying to keep the top from looking like a octagon, trying to keep the brim centered  and looking decent.  Finally, I think I have finished working and reworking this pattern.  For now.

So on with the pattern!!!

PicMonkey Collage

Directions for making the Top of the hat stay nice and flat!  .

Using an old cereal box I trace a circle and cut it out.  Then I double check by fitting the cardboard form in the hat making sure that it is not to large, which would cause the hat to stretch and not look as good.

Cutting a whole in the cardboard form is really important for larger hats (but can be done for all sizes) as it allows room for the crown of the head.  I placed the lining like this to help keep a little slack in the material. I then use my hot glue gun to secure the material to the cardboard form.    
 
Trim off any extra material make sure that you don’t cut so much that the cardboard shows.  I then place the ‘ruff side’ up in the hat, carefully working it in making sure not to stretch the finished hat.

Fishing Hat Crochet Pattern – FREE Pattern!!!

This site contains affiliate links. When you click on them and purchase something, I may be compensated.
One of my earliest memories is sitting in an aluminum bass boat with my dad and brother with my fishing pole in hand, not having a care in the world.  Not sure how much fishing my dad was actual able to do, but I do remember having an absolutely wonderful time with my family!  As years went by our family of five would load up the camper with fishing gear, the 3 dogs and head out.  There are so many happy memories of camping and fishing and so I thought this would be the perfect tribute to my dad.  So thanks dad for so many wonderful memories, and here is to many more to come! 
 
So enough of that, lets get on to the pattern!

The top of the hat is intended not to be completely flat, but has a slight rumple to it as if it had been dropped in the water and lost its original shape.
