Ribbed crochet hat
Ive been making this style ribbed hat for years now, its such a easy pattern and a very quick satisfying make, it's a great beginner project also makes great gifts for friends and family.
Ive made my hat in this gorgeous soft chenille yarn from Sirdar, the texture in the pattern is amazing.
Anyway it's a super pattern, all you need to do is crochet a rectangle around your lovely head, fold it in half, sew or slip stitch the sides together to make a tube, sew around the top, pull tight to close, finish by adding a fluffy pom-pom on top.
I got the ribbed look by working treble crochet stitches into the back loops only, you can create similar effect with half triple crochet stitch or single crochet stitch. Stroll down for written pattern.
size 8 mm hook
yarn Sirdar Smudge- soft chenille yarn
Row 1- Chain 33, then work 1 treble crochet stitch into 3rd ch from hook and every stitch to the end. If you would like the hat longer add more chain stitches to your starting chain.
Row 2- Work in back loops only, work 1 tr into every stitch across, ch2 turn. Repeat row 2 until your rectangle is long enough to wrap around your head.
When your happy with the size of your rectangle, fold it half so that the two short ends line up, I worked a slip stitch into each stitch on both sides to crochet it together, you can always sew it together if you prefer. Now thread a long strand of yarn into your needle, sew through each row all the way around the top of your hat, grab both ends of the yarn and pull tight to gather the hat in, tie both strands together and sew in all your ends. Turn your hat the right way, fold over the bottom, and stick or sew your fluffy pom-pom on top.
