Make it! The Lovely Funny Hat !!!

Hi there!!!!

It seems I`m not able (or can`t find the time) to be here more regurarly, and I`m sorry for that, as I really love this place of mine... anyway, I made another pattern to share with you all!

The idea came to me last year, while working on triangle motifs to figure out a simple heart.. this came out very elongated and I decided to use it for a silly hat, good for both Valentine`s Day and the italian Carnevale, at the end of February...!!!



This ridiculous hat is a very quick make and I like the fact it doesn`t need to be stiffened to hold its point up!!!

The hat is made of 3 panels (1 upside-down heart and 2 triangles), worked using DC (= British tr) stitches and joined as you go (no sewing involved).

The upside-down heart is kept on the back of your head when wearing the hat, as you can see from the above picture : there is a kind of tail along my neck on the left selfie of my collage !

WHAT YOU NEED :

  • YARN : King Cole BIG VALUE chunky, 100g, 100% premium acrylic, shade 553 Red, 1 ball                 Hayfield BONUS CHUNKY , 100g, 100% acrylic, shade 931 Stormcloud, 1 ball
  • 6mm hook
  • a pair of scissors
  • yarn needle
  • 1 stitch marker (optional) to put on the front of the 1st motif to be aware of the RS (right side)
Please note that I`m following the US crochet terminology.

My turning chain (2ch) is never considered as a proper stitch.

The pattern is intended for intermediate crocheters.

The hat size is ADULT and one size fits most. (My head circumference is about 60cm)

CROCHET STITCHES and ABBREVIATIONS :

ch : chain
sl st : slip stitch
SC : single crochet (= dc UK)
DC : double crochet (= tr UK)
TR : treble (= dt UK)
DC2tog : basic decrease stitch (= tr2tog UK)
F.O. : fasten off
RS : right side of your work
WS : wrong side of your work

Starting on the WS, repeat the same pattern for the other curved side of the heart.



FIRST TRIANGLE PANEL

Different colours, but right picture!!!


We are going to follow the same pattern for the first part of the heart panel, but the triangle is joined as you go to the previous panel ! The joinings are highlighted in bold and they happen only at the end of each odd row.

Pick up the heart panel (you can put a stitch marker on the front of it) with the RS facing you. Each time you will join the new one to it, the heart panel will be at the left of the working panel.

Insert the hook (from front to back) in the bottom point of the heart and join the new colour (stormcloud), then chain 3.

SECOND TRIANGLE PANEL

Even this time there is some joining.... more than the previous one! In fact, this new panel is worked joining it to both previous panels !!! In this way you avoid any sewing and when completed you have a hat!!!

The joinings are highlighted in bold and they happen at the end of each row, only on the RS of the work!

This time, the heart will be at your right, while the first triangle will be at your left.

Little by little you will see the conic shape of your hat becoming bigger and bigger....






Insert the hook (from front to back) in the bottom point of the triangle and join the colour stormcloud, then chain 3.

Trim all ends in.



If your hat is made of 2 triangles and 1 heart, once done, it will be like the one on the bottom left of the above picture. The upside-down heart is the back of the heart.

If you decide, instead, to work a hat with 2 hearts and 1 triangle, the back/sides will be like the one in the top right of the picture. In this case, the 2 hearts will cover your neck and ears!

EDGING

Just to give a neat finish to your hat!

Make a slip knot on your hook with red yarn and work a round of SC (dc), starting the start of right curve of the heart. To close the round, simply sl st in top of first SC made. Trim in all ends.





EMBELLISHMENTS

HEART

With red yarn, make a slip knot on hook and work 3 chains.

Row 1 (RS) : 2 DC into 1st chain, 2ch, TURN (2 DC )
Row 2 (WS) : 2 DC in 1st stitch, 2 DC in last stitch, 2ch, TURN (4 DC)
Row 3 : 2 DC in 1st stitch, 1 DC in each stitch, 2 DC in last stitch, 2ch, TURN (6 DC)
Row 4 : 2 DC in first stitch, 1 DC in each stitch, 2 DC in last stitch, 2ch, TURN (8 DC)
Row 5 : 2 DC in first stitch, 1 DC in each stitch, 2 DC in last stitch, 2ch, TURN (10 DC)
Row 6 : 10 DC, 3ch, TURN (10 DC)
Row 7 (RS) : 5Trtog, cut yarn and fasten off; join yarn in next stitch and 3ch in same stitch and work 5Trtog. Cut yarn and fasten off. Weave in ends!

[The above pattern was copied and pasted from my IG FEED : https://www.instagram.com/p/BtxpLbClXXc/] 

Put it on the front of your hat and sew it on!

Trim all ends in.



 If you prefer, you can crochet smaller hearts (4mm hook and DK yarn) and decorate your hat differently :



POM-POM

Wrap 80 (more or less) times the red yarn around your fingers. Slide it off and knot another red lenght of yarn around it. Trim the excess of yarn and attach the pom-pom at the top of your hat, letting it dangle a little bit ! 

DONE!!!




... As usual : if you try to crochet one hat or more, please let me know!

Enjoy crocheting,
