Free Seed Stitch Hat Knitting Pattern

Free Seed Stitch Hat Knitting Pattern

After taking a year off from this blog, it’s with a huge sigh of relief and a new burst of creative energy that I can say that I am back! In the past year, I’ve dedicated my time to starting up a little art studio in my small town, and this blog fell by the wayside as a result. I knew that opening my own brick and mortar business would require all of my time and energy.

My little art studio called Pink Velvet Studio (you can check it out here!) is a space that I created as a way to bring creativity and art into the local community. We host a range of crafting and art classes from children’s clay workshops to wine and paint nights (for the adults of course!). And of course I had to bring my love of knitting into my little art studio too. In January I’m going to be hosting a stitch and bitch event where we will feature a local fiber artist who will be doing a spinning demonstration and selling some of her handmade yarn. If you’re in the Northeast Ohio area, I’d love you to stop by and see us!

So my world has gotten fuller and my knitting needles have been really lonely. But as many of you know, we can’t really leave the needles and hooks alone for long. And it just felt right to come back to this blog in the winter months, where the cold draws me inside and begs me to slow down. For my first post back on the blog, I figured the best pattern to share would be one that I started last year! So here it is, the seed stitch hat. I hope you enjoy the pattern, and I hope you’ll come back again! You can also follow more of my knitting process and adventures on Instagram!

Emily Hat Crochet Hat That Looks Like Knitting

Emily Hat Crochet Hat That Looks Like Knitting

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.


To make the Emily Hat you will need:

Yarn: Worsted weight yarn

Yardage: approx. 120 yards.

Hook Size:

US Hook 8 (5.0mm)

Abbreviations:

sc: single crochet

sl: Slip stitch

Gauge: 14sts. & 10 rows = 4” in pattern


Begin Pattern

Chain 32

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

 

Hat Band:

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.

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.

Enjoy!

 

 

 

Turban Hat Crochet Free Pattern

Turban Hat Crochet Free Pattern

TURBANHAT

When I saw this Turban Hat by The Bunny Studio– I instantly needed to make it. Don’t you love projects like that? I dropped all plans for laundry, dishes, and general adult responsibilities in favor of picking up my crochet hook to create this beautiful hat.

What I used to make the hat:

Lion Brand Wool Ease Yarn

Us size 9 Crochet Hook

I think what stood out to me was the ease of the pattern. It was something I could do without having to figure out a new stitch, or a new technique. I had the knowledge, the yarn, and the power to create something pretty. If you know how to crochet in the round, and do a back post double crochet, you’re good to go!

At the end, I decided to alter the hat by making a small band, and sewing it on top of the cinched seam instead of doing the flowers. There are so many possibilities. If you don’t feel like crocheting an extra piece for the cinched front, you could always add a rhinestone button, or just wrap yarn around it. Your choice!

Get the free pattern from The Bunny Studio

If you want to do my alteration, here are the instructions:

Ch 4

Row 1. Sc into the 2nd ch from the hook. Sc to end of row, ch1, turn

Repeat row 1 until your band reaches about 1 3/4 – 2 inches. Cinch your hat at the seam, and sew on the piece to cover up the seam.

I’m planning to make another turban hat with a different embellishment soon. If you want to see what other hooky adventures I’m up to, you can follow my adventures on Instagram!

Anna Hat Free Knitting Pattern

Free Cable Hat Knitting Pattern

I stepped outside to play with my dog in the snow last week, and snapped a few pics of my latest design: The Anna Hat. The next day, the snow melted in the 50 degree heat, so I’m glad I did! And hey- I’m definitely not complaining. I stepped outside yesterday in a t-shirt and jeans, admiring what looked like a beautiful spring day in February.

Cabled hat free knitting pattern

I’m sure we’ll get our fair share of snow this year, but winter’s mercy seems to be upon us Ohioans this year. Since we’re heading to Belize in April for my wedding, and we missed last winter all together because we were in Belize, I have to say I feel like mother nature has been really good to me!

I am happy to be back in the States again (not many yarn stores in the tropics. None at all actually.) but I can’t wait to head back to Belize in April, walk down the sandy beach, and marry the love of my life! Hopefully before then, we’ll get one more beautiful snowy day that I can wear my new hat, but if not… eh, there’s always next year!
