Introduction: This free crochet pattern looks intimidating, but don’t be dismayed, it’s just a trick with the yarn. Imagine 3 dc’s standing in a row, and then wrapping them 3 times around with hook and yarn, done! This wrapping technique then turns sideways all by its self, now why didn’t I think of that? Each wrap is separated with a simple V stitch, which gives a very uniformed and attractive design.

The entire pattern is achieved over only 2 rows, making it repetitive and easy to follow.



To fit: Newborn to 3 Months

Measurements approx: Head Circumference 13 to 14 inches, hat height 5.5 to 6 inches



Please note, by using a smaller or larger hook, you can make a smaller or larger beanie



Hook size: 3.5mm for newborn 4.00mm for 3 months+ US G/6

Yarn: 8 ply approx 50 gm’s US DK/Medium.

US crochet terms used

Skill level: beginner ++

Tension: medium

Time: approx 2 hours



Stitches used:

Sl st=slip stitch

Ch=chain

Sc = single crochet

Hdc= half double crochet

Dc =double crochet

Fphdc = front post hdc

Fpdc=front post double crochet

V st= (dc, ch 1, dc)

Wrap st = see special st

  
 Special stitch: We’ll call this wrap st in the pattern. Once you have your 3 dc’s in a row, you will then need to do your wrap this way. 
Coming from the front of your work, yo hook, place hook into the space before your 1st dc, go around the back of all 3 dc’s, pull up a loop and come back out of the same place you went into, (3 loops on hook), repeat this 2 more times, (2nd time 5 loops on hook, 3rd time, 7 loops on hook)
yo over 1 more time and pull through all loops on hook, done!



V stitch: The V stitch is (1 dc, ch 1, 1 dc), on the first row of the pattern this is worked into a 1 dc, on every other row of the pattern, the V stitch is worked into the ch 1 space of the V stitch, the dc’s on either sides of the V stitch will not be worked into, unless stated otherwise





Please note! The beginning ch 1 and ch 2 of every rnd is not counted as a st.

Row 2, ch 1, work 1hdc in same space as join, work 1 hdc into each hdc to the end, sl st to join and finish off leaving a long enough tail to sew in and hide your ends.



My testers have said that they made their hat larger just by using larger hooks.

Made by Robyn  McKeague with a bow
Robyns Bow Pattern

Start of by making a Slip Knot, then crochet 40 Chains.
Row 1~ Chain 2, skip 2 chains from your hook, then crochet Half Double Crochets all across into every chain.
Row 2 ~ Chain 2, half double crochet into every stitch across.
Row 3 ~ Change color. Chain 2, half double crochet into every stitch across.
Row 4-5 ~ Chain 2, half double crochet into every stitch across.
When you've completed all the rows, connect the two ends of the bow band together to create a circle and Slip Stitch them together.
Once you've slip stitched the ends together, flip the slip stitched part to the inside and fasten your yarn off. You don't want to trim your yarn less than 55"/140cm because you need a long enough tail to wrap around your bow.
Start of by slowly yet tightly wrapping the yarn around the center of the bow. You need to wrap it around the bow at least 15 times. When you've finished wrapping, knot it to the back of the bow.

You can use any combination of colors. This bow is for a 9 month old hat.
