Crochet Hat with Embossed Swirl design

05 Feb

I love crochet/knitted hats. They keep your head and ears warm, and add the perfect finishing touch to my winter look. This hat caught my eye, due to the particularly nice swirl design which is suitable for men, women and children. The hat has no seam, as it worked in the round from a centre ring, much like a motif.

The instructions for the basic hat are shown on the video below. The tutorial is in Spanish, but it is very easy to follow.

The video instructions show the design, worked using multiples of 8 double crochets that equal 32 double crochets for a child’s hat, and 96 double crochets for an adult’s hat. The pattern consists of 3 fpdc and 5 bpdc repeated.

I worked my hat using multiples of 10 double crochets, that equal 120 double crochets, because I required a larger hat and I also wanted more pronounced swirls. My pattern consists of 4fpdc and 6bpdc repeated.

I worked a knitted rib on four double pointed needles for my hat as I did not want the crochet rib. The crochet rib looked very nice, but I found the lack of elasticity unacceptable. I am very happy with my finished hat which is very warm looks really nice.

To make my hat:

Yarn Type: DK Acrylic yarn 150grms

Needle Type: UK size no.8 (4.00mm) crochet hook. UK size no. 8 (4.00mm) set of 4 double pointed knitting needles
