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)
Rounds 9 : Repeat 8
Round 10-13: Ch2, hdc in each st around. Join with a slipstitch in first hdc. (60 dc)
Rounds 14: Ch 1, sc in each st around. Join with a slipstitch in first sc . Increment 6 sc around              in uniform manner(66 sc)
Rounds 15 : Repeat 14 without increments (66 sc)
Round 16: Ch 2, dc in each st around. Join with a slipstitch in first dc. (66 dc)
Rounds 17: Ch 1, sc in each st around. Join with a slipstitch in first sc (66 sc)
Rounds 18 : Repeat 17

Brim:

Round 19: Ch 1, sc in each st around. Join with a slipstitch in first sc . Increment 4 sc around in uniform manner(70 sc)
Round 20: Repeat 19, no increments (70sc)
Round 21: Ch 1, sc in each st around. Join with a slipstitch in first sc . Increment 10 sc around in uniform manner(80 sc)
Round 22: Repeat 21, no inrements (80 sc)
Round 23: Ch 1, sc in each st around. Join with a slipstitch in first sc . Increment 10 sc around in uniform manner (90 sc)
Round 24: Repeat 23, no increments. (90 sc)
Round 25: Ch 1, sc in each st around. Join with a slipstitch in first sc . Increment 10 sc around in uniform manner (100 sc)
Round 26: Repeat 25, no increments (100 sc)

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

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

    ReplyDelete
  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.

  12. I made one ... love the hat, but am dying to know how you got it to keep its shape?!!! Cute pattern. :)

  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!

  17. I want to knit this hat for my sister who is undergoing chemotherapy. I've been knitting for a long time but I've only been crocheting recently. Can you tell me what a "magic circle" is and what you mean by "dc" ? Thanks!

    1. Magic circle can be found on Youtube. It takes a few tries, but once you get it, you will love it. It eliminates ch 5, join to form a ring for the first round. If you don't want to do a magic ring, chain 5, join with slip stitch to form a ring, and just proceed to round 2, A magic ring just is nice because it tightens really small.

  21. Hello !

    I would like to know what kind of wool you used for that. I'm trying tu use a 100gr for 75m ball and it just doesn't seem right. And I don't really see how you can make 12 dc in a magic ring, aren't you supposed to take the fourth stitch of the chain to make dc ?
    I'm really sorry I'm a little confused, hope you understand my problem ><
    Thanks !

  22. I do believe this is a good pattern however, it could have been explained better. Increments, 6 increments, what is that.

    1. It's the adding of stitches to each row (Increasing). Double crochet in the next 6 stitches and in the seventh stitch, crochet 2 doubles crochet in the same stitch. Do this all the way around to increase stitches in that row. It took a little to figure it out. I also found in row 7 if I turned my work around and work my stitches on the front of the stitch, it helps with the folding of the sides, strengthening the sides of the hat.

  24. This hat is adorable and I made two -- one for each of my boys -- for Easter this year.

  25. After reading the comments above I feel as if I should interject... I felt comfortable with the pattern, but a few people had questions. It's pretty easy, but there were a few spots where people were hung up...I understand. Hopefully I can help clarify...

    This pattern is good to fit my 6 and 8 year old sons. It may also fit my teen, but to increase the size I would do exactly as the author describes. When moving between the "Top" and "Bottom" portions of the hat construction, Just add another round or two of dc and sc as needed. For an adult, I'd probably add another 2dc and one sc before moving on to the author's "Bottom" instructions. From there, I'd keep all the same as written.

    As to the concern over keeping the shape of the hat, the author clearly states that a less-soft yarn should be used. So I used a regular worsted weight yarn that wasn't labeled as super soft. It worked for me. "Baby" yarns should probably be avoided. I used Red Heart's Soft and it worked fine.

    Many people got hung up on the author's "uniform increases". OK. So let's go from Rounds 18 to 19 where you are asked to increase from 66 to 70 sts. I divided 66 by four (because 66 + 4 = 70). So every 16 sts I did 2sc in the sc. Right? Makes sense. Then, when you go from 70sc to 80sc, I did 2sc in every 7sts. See? "uniform increases". No biggie. You cannot do all your increases in one sc or it WILL come out something like an "eyelet" as described in previous comments. Even distributing of sts is how to increase in a round.

    Best of luck to everyone! I love this pattern. I will re-use it many times, I'm sure.

    1. I have made so many of these hats, it is a great pattern. It is basic and you can adapt flower to it and dress it up or you can make it for a man... I use it when I make hats for the cancer place my sister goes too. I thank you so much for sharing and explaining...

    2. Thank you for that. I've been doing baby charity work but recently met two wonderful women who run a cancer survivor non-profit and am making hats for that group and I really want to make at least 10 of these to donate. I wasn't sure about adding the extra rows at the top, but you clarified that with the alternating between dc and sc rows. Thanks again!
