Posted Brim (Crochet Hat Brim)

Hello, all!

I have had many requests for a brim I created for several of my crochet hats. Well, who am I to keep such a fun brim from you all?

Pattern

multiples of 4

Row 1: ch 1, sc around

Row 2: ch 1, sc around

Row 3: ch 1, *sc 3, fpdc around the sc in row 1; repeat from * around

That’s all there is to it! If you want a deeper brim do three rows of sc and then use a fptc instead of a double. This brim is especially fun if you work the two rows of sc in one color and the third row with the fpdc in a contrasting color. Enjoy!

(Not so Golden) Snitch Necklace

This quirky necklace (or bracelet) started as a simple mistake. I was creating the Crochet Ball Necklace by Coats & Clark and when I realized my mistake it looked like the snitch from Harry Potter! I ripped the original necklace and continued to make a row of snitches. I mean, who doesn’t love Harry Potter jewelry?? 🙂

Cuff Instructions

ch. 31 with color A and 3.5 mm hook

Row 1: sc in 2nd chain from hook and remaining chains; ch 1, turn (30 sts)

Row 2: sc across; ch 1, turn

Rows 3-9: repeat row 2; cut yarn, weave in ends

At this point you will attach color B along the bottom left corner of the cuff and follow the pattern below around the edges of the cuff. You will now be using the 2.75 mm hook as well.

  • (sc, ch 3, sc) in each stitch along the bottom
  • 3 sc in the corner; sc in the next 3 stitches, ch 4, sc in next 6 stitches, ch 4, sc i next 3 stitches; 3 sc in the corner
  • (sc, ch 3, sc) in each stitch along the top
  • 3 sc in corner;  9 sc along the side of the cuff; 3 sc in the corner; cut yarn; make an invisible join, and weave in the ends

Now it is time to embroider your cuff. You may embroider whatever you’d like, but I used the lazy daisy stitch to create the daisies on my cuff. You will find a video here. The woman is use fabric and embroidery floss, but it is the same technique.

Next I attached two buttons on the sc side of the cuff. They should like up with the ch 4 on the other side of the cuff.

Last, I sewed fabric on the back side of the cuff for structure. It isn’t necessary, but it is fun to pick out fabric and good sewing practice!

Spring Twist Hat

Spring Twist Hat

picture of spring splendor hat

Materials:

  • US 6, 16″ circular needle (or DPNs)
  • ~150 yards worsted weight cotton yarn (My choice is Knit One Crochet Too Ty-Dy Cotton. It is considered worsted weight, but I think it is a little lighter so check your gauge if you use a different yarn.)
  • Tapestry needle, ruler, and button

Gauge:

  • 5 sts x 8 rows = 1 in. x 1 in.

Abbreviations/Stitches Used:

  • k – knit
  • p – purl
  • k2tog – knit two together
  • pm – place marker

Hat Instructions:

co 88 stitches (I used the long tail cast on method. Instructions here.)

Row 1:  K, P across the 88 stitches; turn, do not join

Row 2: k2tog, yo; *P, K; repeat from * until two stitches remain; yo, k2tog

Repeat rows 1 and 2 two more times to create three eyelets.

Row 7: K, P across the 88 stitches; co 20 using the single cast on (instructions here); 108 sts

Row 8:  Join to work in the round and knit all stitches.

Continue in stockinette until you are approximately 4.5-5 inches from the edge.

Crown Decreases:

*k10, k2tog, pm; repeat from * to end (99 sts)

Knit 2 rounds

*Knit to 2 sts before marker, k2tog; repeat from * to end (81 sts)

Repeat the last three rounds (72 sts)

Knit 1 round

*Knit to 2 sts before marker, k2tog; repeat from * to end (63 sts)

Repeat last round until 9 stitches remain

Cut yarn leaving approximately 6 inches; use a tapestry needle to thread the tail through the remaining stitches a few times and fasten off.

Weave in any remaining ends.

The last part of this hat are the twists (instructions below). Three of the twists are put through the eyelets and then buttoned at the top of the hat. This creates the “bow” portion of the hat. The part of the twists that goes through the eyelets will then be sewn to the inside of the hat. The twists will create a bump of sorts on the inside of the hat, but it is not noticeable from the outside. If you want to make the twists less intrusive I suggest a lighter weight yarn that matches your hat yarn. Another option is to use the yarn as a bow without twisting it.

The rest of the twists are used for the top of the hat. (I used 18.) Thread a piece of scrap yarn through the “top” ends of each tassel using a tapestry needle. (The top end is the end without the knot.) Then run the piece of yarn holding the twists together through the top of the hat to the inside. Weave in the ends and you’re done!

Twist Instructions:

First, double 15 inches of yarn and cut

measure 30 inches of yarn

15" doubled

Second, place your finger at the end of the loop and use it two twist the yarn. Twist until the yarn feels tight against your finger.

use your finger to twist the yarn

Third, bring your loop finger up to the other end of the yarn and hold them together. The yarn will twist up on itself as below.

Last, while holding the yarn together in your left hand, use your right hand to sort of straighten the twist.

Thanks and enjoy!
