Happy Clappy Crochet

Celebrating Crochet with a Positive Spin

Friday the 13th – Quick Post

on May 13, 2016

Marly Bird stated earlier today on Twitter that this is the only Friday the 13th for 2016, so something special should be done to celebrate.

I’m going to do that by giving you all access to a free hat pattern. It is the Cassi Hat, named after a good friend who challenged me to change a scarf stitch pattern into a hat design. Enjoy!

Cassi’s Hat

(a CROCHET pattern in U.S. Terms)

 Materials:            H / 5.00mm hook

Approximately 200 yds worsted weight yarn (Weight Category 4)

Two stitch markers

Tapestry needle

Size:                         Approximately 22” cir; 8” length

Gauge Measurement:             16 stitches = 4”

                                                   Crown diameter should be between six to seven inches for adults

 

Special Stitch: Textured Stitch: Alternating SC / DC

 

Foundation:     Ch 6; sl st in first ch to close ring

 

Round 1:          Ch 2; 15 dc into ring.  Sl st in first dc to end round (15)

 

Round 2:          Ch 2; 2 dc in same stitch as sl st and in each stitch around.  Sl st in top of first dc to end round. (30)

 

Round 3:          Ch 2; dc in same stitch as sl st, 2 dc in next stitch, *dc in next stitch, 2 dc in next stitch; repeat from * around, ending with 2 dc.  Sl st in first dc to end round. (45)

 

Round 4:          Ch 2; dc in same stitch as sl st and in nest stitch, 2 dc in next stitch, *dc in next 2 stitches, 2 dc in next stitch; repeat from * around, ending with 2 dc.  Sl st in first dc to end round. (60)

 

Round 5:          Ch 2; dc in same stitch as sl st and in next two stitches, 2 dc in next stitch, *dc in next 3 stitches, 2 dc in next stitch; repeat from * around, ending with 2 dc.  Sl st in first dc to end round. (75)

 

Round 6:          Ch 2; dc in same stitch as sl st and in each stitch around.  Sc in first dc to end round. (75)

Place Stitch Marker in this joining sc; DO NOT REMOVE MARKER

 

TURN HAT SO RS FACES IN – This will help keep the texture to the outside of the hat.

 

NOTE: Use a second marker to keep track of round repeats.

 

Round 7:          Dc in next stitch; *sc in next stitch, dc in next stitch; repeat from * around until desired hat length is reached, ending with a sc.  Sl st into sc at start of row. Fasten off and weave in ends.

 

 

Many thanks to Yvonne Tate, who taught me my favorite method for stitching the crown.
