Materials

YARN: 1 skein of Drops Paris yarn in shade 17. This is an Aran weight, 100% cotton yarn. One of my all-time favorites. A great substituting yarn for this project is Yarn and Colors Epic yarn. You can shop for more colors here.

CROCHET HOOK: 5.0 mm crochet hook or the size needed to obtain the gauge. You can find the hook I am using in the tutorial HERE.

YOU WILL ALSO NEED: a bunch of stitch markers, a tapestry needle and a pair of scissors.

Gauge

GAUGE:  Work 8 stitches and 9 rows in SC into BLO using a 5.0 mm crochet hook and an Aran weight yarn to measure 5 x 5 cm (2 x 2 inches).

When you find a new crochet project that you would like to make, you usually want to start ASP. We all do. But please take some time and check the gauge. It might save your project!

Checking the gauge is a crucial step in the process of making a new crochet/knit garment. It will help you achieve the right size of your finish item. Learn how to check your gauge here.

Stitches and Abbreviations

  •  Sst/sts – stitch/stitches
  •  ch – chain
  •  ss – slip stitch
  • hdc – half double crochet
  • sc – single crochet
  • sc2tog – single crochet two together
  • BLO – work into back loops only

Special Techniques

WORKING INTO BACK LOOPS ONLY – BLO

If you look at your work from the top down, you see two loops. One closer to you called a front loop and one further away from you called back loop.

When we are crocheting we usually insert our hook under both loops. Working into back loops only is a technique where you use the back loop only.

All you have to do when you are working on a new stitch is to insert your hook between both loop and under the back loop. Grab the yarn and continue with the stitch.

JOIN TWO SINGLE CROCHET STITCHES TOGETHER

There are a couple of ways how to join two single crochet stitches together. My favorite way is a technique that is usually used with amigurumi toys. It’s also called invisible single crochet two together stitch.

  1. Insert the hook into the first stitch below.
  2. Insert the hook into the second stitch below.
  3. Grab the yarn and pull it through. You have two loops on your hook.
  4. Yarn over and pull through both loop on your hook.
  5. Done!

2) Take the panel number 2 and attach the straight edge to the panel 1 – to those 18 marked sts with a small amount of yarn/ yarn tail and a tapestry needle.

3) Join both ends of panel 1 with a small amount of yarn. When you are done gather the front part of the hat going through every other row, following along the vertical seam.

4) Take panel number 3, wrap it around the front seam to create a bow looking shape. Join both ends of panel 3 together. Pull the seam of the panel 3 up.

Turn the piece the wrong side out, then sew the panels together.
