Head Huggers






Someone asked me to make something for them. For all of us that have a ton of hair to put under a hat... This is what I came up with by looking at a few pictures. They are very easy and quick to make.

I used an H hook. The fall colored one is Red Heart Super Saver, the Earth tones is Lilys Sugar and Cream

Rnd 1) ch 62, sl st to first ch to form ring, being careful not to twist, ch3, (counts as first dc and ch1) * skip next ch, dc in next ch, ch1, repeat from * around. sl st to 2nd ch of ch3
Rnd 2) sl st into ch 1 space, ch3, * skip next dc, dc in next ch1 space, ch1, repeat from * around. sl st to 2nd ch of ch3
Repeat rnd 2 for desired length mine was about 8-9 inches.
Next rnd) ch1, Hdc in same st, hdc in each st around. st st to top of first hdc. Repeat this round for 8 more rnds.
Next Rnd) Reverse single crochet around. Fasten off weave in ends

Tie) Chain 65 add beads to each end, weave in first dc round.

Please feel free to use or sell your own creations, but please give me credit for the pattern.

  7. Great idea. Thanks for sharing it. My son has long hair, usually ties it back out of the way. I was considering making him a rasta type of hat but didn't think he'd wear it. This might do the trick - or could be that his wife will steal it! Maybe I should make 2.

  11. I have tried this twice...but before I get to the rounds with the hdc, my circle has begun to get smaller. I can't figure out what I am doing wrong. I am new to making hats, but I am in love with this pattern. I want to make them for my granddaughters. Also, how much of the Sugar & Cream yarn do I need?

  15. Thank you for sharing. I have real thin hair because of chemo treatment and this will definitely hide my bald spot! Plus keep me warm and let my longer hair hang out so I don't look bald!
