Quick Fix




It's snowing hard and is very nasty out. Kids are home for the day from school and I am desperately waiting for a call from the hubby. He drives and delivers Coca Cola to stores and I haven't heard from him since early this morning. So I need a diversion and some thing QUICK fixed!

Using a double strand of worsted weight yarn and a K hook


Rnd 1) ch3, 11dc in 3rd ch from hook
Rnd 2) ch2, 2dc in each st around, skipping ch2, sl st into top of first dc (22dc)
Rnd 3) ch2, 2dc in first st(same st as joining), dc in next st, * 2dc in next st, dc in next st, repeat from * around. sl st to top of first dc, (33dc)
Rnd 4) ch2, 2dc in next st, dc in next 2sts, * 2dc in next st, dc in next 2sts, repeat from * around. sl st to top of first dc, (44dc)
Rnd 5-8) ch2, dc in each st around, (44dc)
Rnd 9+10) ch3, working in front of ch3, dc in last st of previous round, * skip next st, dc in next st, working in front of dc, dc in skipped st, (this creates a cross stitch effect) repeat from * around, sl st to top of ch3 (44dc)
Rnd 11) ch2, dc in each st around
Rnd 12) ch1, sc in each st around, fasten off weave in ends.

  3. Pretty hat. I think I will give it a go. We have been stuck at home all week with snow and ice. My kids and I are suffering from Cabin Fever and are really getting on each others nerves! I need a hooky escape!

  6. So pretty! Hope your husband was fine. I understand! My husband does custom farm jobs and is always out in this nasty weather and sometimes is in areas with no cell coverage. It's enough to drive a woman a little crazy. Thanks for the pattern.

  7. This hat is so pretty and I am going to give it a go right after I finish crocheting a baby blanket. So glad your Hubby made it home safely and you are back to posting patterns again. They are easy to follow and work up quick.

  9. This is just the right look I have been searching for. I would like to crochet a heathered gray hat for a little girl across the street; she just turned one. For her, I'm going to attach a gigantic crocheted flower as well. Thanks for sharing your patterns and talent with us!

  16. If I wanted to make this hat for an adult, how would I increase the size?

    ReplyDelete
  17. Its very cute. I made it today... but it fits me instead of my niece, I must crochet big, it measures 22 inches round. What does yours measure?

    ReplyDelete
  18. This is a great hat, but I needed the hat to fit an adult. I took a chance and added a round to duplicate round 4, and it worked very nicely. The adult pattern reads as follows:
    Round 4: as written
    Round 5: repeat round 4
    Original rounds 5-8 now become rounds 6-9
    Original rounds 9 & 10 now become rounds 10 & 11
    Original round 11 becomes round 12
    Original round 12 is your final round
    I hope this helps all who want to make this for a teen or adult.
    Again, GREAT pattern for child or adult!

  20. So happy to find your site. Thanks for the precious hat pattern! and thanks also to KHAdams for the adult sizing :):) There are so many nice crocheters in this world!

  21. Love the hat! Thanks!
    I knit and crochet and like making hats. Here in the Central Valley of CA we rarely need a warm hat or scarf. :(
    But my husband and I have chosen to move to ND this June and are very much looking forward to snowy winters. It's been years for us both and we want to experience 4 distinct seasons again, including snow! So, I am looking forward to making more hats and even using wool and being able to use it!

  22. Very cute and easy to whip up! Thanks I think I will put a cute flower on the side and my grand-daughter should love it!

  23. So cute! I saw this on Ravelry & knew I had to make it for my 10 yo daughter. Thanks!

  24. Very cute! I'm new to crotchet so bear with me if this is a silly question... how do you get a "double strand"? Do you use 2 skeins or do you roll a ball as double? Thanks

    ReplyDelete
  25. Claudia...double strand means using a strand of yarn from 2 balls at the same time.

  28. We tried the pattern with a 5 bulky yarn, single strand. My daughter skipped round 2 and did round 3 twice. The had came out large and slouchy so she did a few extra rounds at the end to decrease making a band so it would fit. Looks nice and great for my daughter's first attempt at a hat but nothing like the one pictured here. I also did it using red heart supersaver size 3 yarn, single strand and ended up with a baby hat. So, depending on what yarn you use, this pattern can be quite versatile.

  30. How many chains would I start with to make a hat for a 3 year old?

  31. Awesome! Just made one this morning for my little girl's upcoming b-day! I am new to crocheting... Followed the pattern but made a few adjustments to make it fit my daughter's head better. Beautiful, simple pattern! Thank you so much for sharing! I plan to make more of these for another daughter, a son, and definitely for myself as well! Thanks again!

  32. Hi VallieKids,
    Thanks 4 sharing this quick Beanie pattern, I am helping (Snappy Tots) on facebook reach thier goal of 600 Green & white beanie hats for the SANDY HOOK SCHOOL STUDENTS,,,,Operation Beanies for Brave Students,
    but I do not understand this part of the pattern:
    Rnd 9+10) ch3, working in front of ch3, dc in last st of previous round, * skip next st, dc in next st, working in front of dc, dc in skipped st, (this creates a cross stitch effect) repeat from * around, sl st to top of ch3.....HELP!

    ReplyDelete
  33. I love this hat! I have not been crocheting long and have taught myself (with help from the internet) :-) I also do not understand Rnd 9+10. Thanks for your help

    ReplyDelete
  34. So on round 9 & 10, you chain three, then you work a double crochet into the stitch to the right of the chain three which is also the last stitch you did to finish the round. Then going back to the left of the chain three, which is the normal direction in which you crochet, you skip the next stitch and work a double crochet in the next, once you work the double crochet, work a double crochet in the stitch to the right of the just worked double crochet which is also the skipped stitch. You continue this same pattern around. It took me a couple of tries to figure this out but once you get it, it's really easy to do. Hope this helps!!

    Ever seen the Sarah Plain and Tall series? My favorite!
    Wanted to say that although your blog was written a couple years ago, I have twin sons that work for Coca Cola - good company to work for.
