Hat with brim



Just happened by chance. Will try to write a pattern for the same... Few yarn was left over after making the baby set. So made this hat with brim. The top part is completely worked with dc. Brim with sc. Also added few hdc in between. Quiet happy with the final outcome.

Pattern:

Yarn: Worsted Weight Yarn(cotton)
Avoid soft yarns if you want the brim to stay well
Hook: I(5.5mm)

Top Round:

Round 1: Magic ring.  Ch2 (does not count as dc) 12 dc in ring. Join with a slipstitch in first dc. (12 dc)
Round 2: Ch 2, 2 dc in each st. Join with a slipstitch in first dc. (24 dc)
Round 3: Ch 2, (dc in next st, 2 dc in next st) repeat around. Join with a slipstitch in first dc. (36 dc)
Round 4: Ch 2, (dc in next 2 st, 2 dc in next) repeat around. Join with a slipstitch in first dc. (48 dc)
Round 5: Ch 2, (dc in 3 st, 2 dc in next) repeat around. Join with a slipstitch in first dc. (60 dc)
Rounds 6: Ch 1, sc in each st around. Join with a slipstitch in first sc. (60 sc)

If you want the hat to be bigger add one more dc increment & Sc round here.

Bottom:

Round 7: Ch 2, dc in each st around. Join with a slipstitch in first dc. (60 dc)
Rounds 8 : Ch 1, sc in each st around. Join with a slipstitch in first sc. (60 sc)

  5. what does increment 6 sc around in uniform manner mean? It looks like somehow it makes an eyelet.

  6. does it mean increase 6 sc uniformly? I'm to that point and not sure what to do next.

  7. yes it just means to increase 6sc uniformly.. TO increase sc do 2 sc in same stitch. I don't think sc increment make eyelets for any reason. sorry for the late reply..

  11. I did this hat in 3 strands of baby yarn and found it a little soft, so I ripped back and eliminated the increases in two of the last rows. I did it in creamy off white and put a deep red ribbon around the base of the crown to adjust for size. Beautiful! Thanks.

  13. If you want the hat to be bigger add one more dc increment & Sc round here.
    Can you explain this a little more? I can't tell if after the sc round, I do another dc round and then another sc round - I don't know how many stitches that would be and I'd be off on the rest of the pattern stitch count and round count. Apologies for my newbie-ness and gratitude for any clarification. ;-) It looks so cute!

  14. Would "I Love This Cotton" by Hobby Lobby be too soft for this? What yarn do you suggest? Thanks
