Ribbed Hat With Bow Pattern


Materials: Brava bulky yarn in cornflower for the hat and Brava worsted yarn in tidepool for the bow
Size 10 circular needles and dpns for hat
Size 8 dpns for bow

Hat
C.O. 72 sts join in the round
Rib knit for the first 3 inches: Knit 2, Purl 2 each row.
After the ribbing is done just knit until the entire piece measures 7 inches then you will start to decrease.

Decreasing rows:
Row1: Knit 4, Knit 2 together, repeat to end of row
Row2: Knit
Row3: k3, k2tog, repeat 
Row4: Knit (switching to your dpns)
Row5: k2, k2tog, repeat
Row6: knit
Row7: k1, k2 tog, repeat
Row8: knit
Row9: k2 together, repeat

You should now have 12 sts left.  Cut your yarn leaving a long enough tail to weave the sts onto your yarn and pull the hole shut, secure the yarn and tie off.



Bow
Create a bow with a simple 4 stitch i-cord and embellish with a button.  Sew the bow onto the hat giving it a nice shape as you go along.


Happy Knitting!

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!

Shop Update


I added a new item to the shop!  Triple style scarves!  I added three so far and you can wear it as a belt, a hair wrap or of course a scarf. :)  They are super skinny but nice and long, and light weight too!

Thank you so much NeverTooOld!!!  You can see their Etsy page here.

W.I.P.

Work in progress... I am currently working on two scarves:


The sparkly green and purple one is going to be an infinity scarf and the other one with the blue and pink in it is going to be a scarflette with really cute buttons!
 


Here are three items I just finished. They are belts / skinny scarves and can also be worn as hair wraps!  I will be listing these later this week. :)

See ya!
