Pretty In Pink

It's a rainy day outside today and I am watching the movie Pretty in Pink. And I didn't realize until I was almost done with this hat that I was using pink yarn! Duh.!

I am using Caron Simply Soft and an I hook

Rnd 1) ch32, dc in 3rd ch from hook and in each ch accross, 2dc in last ch, now working on opposite side of chain dc accross in base of ch, dc in same st as starting. sl st to top of first dc
Rnd 2) ch2 (does NOT count as first st now and throughout) Working in back loops throughout hat, dc in back loop of each st around
Rnd 3-11) repeat rnd 2
Rnd 12-15) ch1, sc in same st and in each st around. Fasten off

Add pompoms to corners of top of hat. Have fun and happy hooking.
I only ask that you give credit to my site if you use my patterns. You may do what ever you like with your own creations. ;o)

  2. I adore your blog, your pix, and your patterns. Thank you for sharing. Also, my family travelled to Maine about two years ago, and I absolutely loved the area, the cooler weather, and scenery. We stayed near Pemaquid Point. Just wondering where you are in regards to that location. I'm in New Jersey--about two miles from the ocean--hot today, but always a bit cooler along the shore!

  3. Thanks everyone! I'm so glad you enjoy them.

    Ribbons Undone, we love it here in Maine. We are just a few minutes from Newport, which is inbetween Bangor and Augusta! We have visited Pemaquid, soo pretty! There are so many other places we have gone. I should start posting some of them.

  4. This is adorable, and it was so easy! I just made it for my niece--I posted the project on Ravelry, and it'll be on my blog tomorrow (with a link to this pattern!)

    This pom pom tutorial helped me. (I'm a new crocheter, so I'd never made a pom pom!)

    Thanks for a great, free pattern!

  5. So cute! Is it done in the round? I haven't crocheted in a while and not sure I am understanding the pattern - make a tube and seam at the top? Thanks

  6. I Love the pattern, my family is from Skowhegan Maine and we go about once a year, always my favorite vacation!

  7. So I love your work... But I was wondering if you could please do this hat or another hat like this but with step by step pictures. Sorry I am new to this whole crochet thing and started by making just blankets. Getting bored with that I thought I'd move onto hats. Please help me!

  8. Please help me too, I am sure it is obvious how to do this but not to me! I started crocheting last year. Thanks, I love this hat and want to make some for my neices.

  9. Super Easy and Super Cute! Thanks for the pattern and idea!

  10. Thank you so much for this pattern. It reminds me of Abby Cadabby. My granddaughters are going to be so excited when they see the hats. I can't wait to get them made!

    Thanks, Penny

  11. I want to make this cute hat for my niece this winter, but I can't figure it out! Is it done in a round, or whip-stitched at the end?? It seems as though it's done in a round -- is the sl st to top of first dc where it becomes round? Thanks!

  12. I made this hat and gave it to a friend with a 4-year old. The hat was WAY too small and didn't even come close to fitting the child's head. I will try again with a 40-stitch chain to see if that fits.

  13. I love this hat. So quick and easy. For those who are a little lost, you have to join your sl stitch to the very first dc you made then start working in a circle. (atleast that is how I did it...)
    Thank you so much for posting this and helping to keep my little tot's ears nice and warm this winter!!
    Many blessings.

  14. BTW... I cast on 40 and it seems like it will fit my 4 year old's noggin' pretty well though I haven't tested it yet. Just from eye'n it though it looks like it will fit wonderfully.

  15. to cute thanks again for the great patterns !

  16. to cute thanks again for the great patterns !

  17. I made it by using the chain as the Center of the top of the hat, then you work along the chain, with the first row continuing on te OTHER SIDE of the chain, so your hat really has 64 stitches. No sewing required.

    1. And mine turned out a bit large, because I used Red Heart supersaver. But the pattern was excellent!

  18. Just finished mine. Love it. Thanks for sharing!

  19. Hello just wondering this is for what size and is there a way to make it for a 6m baby??? Tha nk you!! In advance
