Last week I posted a pattern for this easy crocheted cowl that looks like knitting. Now I want to introduce to you, it’s soulmate, it’s other half! The Emily Hat! The Emily hat is an easy to make project that only takes an evening. It looks great and completes the look of the Emily Cowl.
It’s really one of those go to beanies that you can wear all the time. You know how I love my T.V. crochet projects, so of course this pattern is simple enough to zone out in front of some Netflix. It uses worsted weight yarn and a size 8 crochet hook.
I like to keep my ongoing projects by the couch, in a nice little organizer so that I can just grab it and start. This Needle Arts Caddy in particular comes in really handy for keeping my T.V. knitting projects organized.
To make the Emily Hat you will need:
Yarn: Worsted weight yarn
Yardage: approx. 120 yards.
sc: single crochet
sl: Slip stitch
Gauge: 14sts. & 10 rows = 4” in pattern
Row 1: Sc into each ch, ch1, turn
Row 2: sl into each sc, ch 1, turn
Row 3: sc into each sl, ch1, turn
Repeat rows 2 & 3 until piece (lenghthwise) measures 16 inches
After the ch1 of last row, turn and sc around the long side of your work to make the hat band. Distribute sts. Evenly, creating about 45- 50 sc, ch1, turn.
Band row 1: sc across, ch1, turn
Repeat band row 1, 4 more times.
Finishing the hat:
Cut yarn, leaving about a 30 (76cm) inch tail. Lay hat flat with band at the bottom, and right side facing upwards. Fold 2 edges in to the middle. Sew seam up to top.
Closing the top of the hat:
Weave in and out all the way around the hat. Pull the yarn to close the hat. Sew the top of hat together to secure. Weave in ends.
