My first crocheted hat!

This is my first crocheted hat!  I wanted something "holey" but didn't have a pattern so I just winged it.

I used Lion Brand Homespun yarn and a size K hook.  I  LBH yarn.  Have I mentioned this before?  I think I have. :)

Very "holey" also nice and slouchy!

Most of the hat is in double crochet except for the rim which is just a few rows of single crochet.

See ya!


  1. That looks a treat! Nice colour too. Which form of craft do you prefer - knitting or crochet? Young crafty daughter prefers the latter, but I find it involves too much concentration: I can knit and watch TV, whereas it's simply impossible when I crochet.

    Besides, blogging is now taking up more of my time, and having just returned from a couple of unexpected stays with said crafty daughter, I'm now torn between watching the Olympics, blogging at and/or creating more Cuddlies for sale at cuddlies. Oh...decisions, decisions.

    You could start a new trend with that hat, by the way1

  2. Thank you for commenting! I prefer knitting too actually, I've only recently learned the basics of crochet and this is one of the few things I've made so far.

  3. I don't know how to crochet and barely know how to knit, so I can admire someone who has the gifts for doing either...and especially to be able to do both!! Turned out great for 'winging it':)

  4. Thanks Cmz Art/Rustic Goth! It was hard to learn b/c I didn't have anyone to show me but once I learned the basic it just got easier and easier. :)
