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