Rolled Brim Textured Hat
A pretty little rolled-brim beanie hat, with a textured stitching. I made this hat for a special friend going through chemo. I hope some of you will consider using it similarly, as a donation to those very brave and very wonderful women. There, but for the grace of God, go you and I.
Materials: 1 skein worsted weight yarn (aran/10ply). I used Stylecraft Special in “Raspberry”; 5mm hook, 5.5mm hook and 4.5mm hook; yarn needle.
Abbreviations: sc = single crochet; dc = double crochet; fpdc = front post double crochet; sl st = slip stitch; hdc = half double crochet.
Gauge: 16 sts and 12 rows on 5mm hook, single crochet = 4”.
Pattern is written in US terms, a conversion chart is included at the end.
Work in the round, not joining at the ends of each row, but place a stitch marker and continue on.
Row 1: With 5mm hook, make a magic circle, ch2, work 8 hdc into ring. Sl st to beg hdc. (8)
Row 2: 2 hdc into every stitch around (16)
Row 3: *2 hdc into next st; 1 hdc into next st;* rep to end (24)
Row 4: *2 hdc into next st, 1 hdc into next 2 sts;* rep to end (32)
Row 5: *2 hdc into next st, 1 hdc into next 3 sts;* rep to end (40)
Row 6: *2 hdc into next st, 1 hdc into next 4 sts;* rep to end (48)
Row 7: *2 hdc into next st, 1 hdc into next 5 sts;* rep to end (56)
Row 8: hdc around entire row
Row 9: *fpdc in first stitch (around hdc from prev row); hdc in next stitch (top of hdc from prev row).* rep to end.
Row 10: *hdc in top of fpdc from prev row; fpdc in next st (around hdc from prev row).* rep to end.
Row 11: *fpdc around hdc from prev row; hdc in top of fpdc from prev row* rep to end.
Repeat Rows 10 and 11 to 7”, or desired length.
Border and roll band:
Change to 5.5mm hook
Row 1: *sc in next 3 sts, 2 sc in next* rep from * to * last st, 2 sc in last st.
Row 2: *sc in next 4 sts, 2 sc in next* rep from * to * to last 2 sts; 2 sc then 1 sc in last st.
Rows 3-6: sc all around for these 4 rows.
Change to 4.5mm hook
Row 7: sc all around
Row 8: sl st around entire row. This, along with the change to the smaller hook, will cause the band to roll inwards, as in the picture.
Fasten off and weave in ends.
