MY FAVORITE HAT!! THE GLORI-JAM!!



This became my favorite hat of all times I think.  It works up in a snap and is beautiful in all types of yarn!

My friend James Lee Kelley of the Hot off the Hook blog had made a beanie with this crown pattern.  I tested the pattern for him and decided I would like it a lot with a bit of a bill and a big old flower.  This is the hat that became I think the perfect blending of two minds!


The brown is the original hat but the coral hat has a different band version which I will include at the bottom!

  4. May I ask what brand of yarn you used for the coral hat? It is lovely!

  5. It was a Vanna,s Choice in Sunset Coral. I think it is discontinued at 50% off here. Hope it is up to date. http://www.lionbrand.com/yarns/vannascolors.html

  9. What size hook did you use to sl st around hat and brim, the sl st made my hat too tight lol!!

    1. I found this also so just left the slip stitch rows out stopping with the single crochets. The hat maintained some stretch with a nice comfy fit. Still turned out awesome--love this pattern!

  10. I used an H but if it becomes too tight go up a size and see what it does. An I perhaps.

  11. What a beautiful hat! And so fun to make!! Thank you so much!

  12. I'm making this hat for my sister, and I'm using the correct hook, and my stitch count is correct.... Is it meant to be made small? Or fit really snugly? Sorry if the question was asked twice, it didn't say it posted for some reason.

    ReplyDelete
  13. This is a very stretchy hat. Be sure to not use worsted like Caron Simply Soft. It doesn't have enough body and will come out smaller. If you crochet tightly you might want to go up a hook size. Thanks for visiting and please let me know how it worked out!

  14. going to start this now...wish me luck..i am making it in camo lol

  15. Love this hat, however, mine ended up small enough for an infant. I went ahead and finished it (if you'd like a picture) - I have gone over the instructions many times, compared them to what you have posted (as I printed them) - Any ideas? I do not crochet 'tight' and I would just like to know if there is a revision I'm missing - would love to make some for Crochet for Cancer. Blessings, Terri

  19. I just finished this hat which is lovely. It is slightly small for me however my niece is very excited about it. I am having trouble figuring out the flower though any tips? Thank you for this wonderful pattern!

    ReplyDelete
  20. I hope everyone is using the J hook for the body of the hat before changing hooks for the trim and bill. I crochet fairly tight so I am not sure why a few have issues with sizing, my suggestions would be to go to a K hook for the body and switch to an I hook for the rest.

  21. I think my post got tagged on the wrong picture. Looking for the bar in the trim portion of the instructions. Help!

  22. How do you make the band across the brim of the coral hat?

    ReplyDelete
  23. If I make this again I will add one more row of double crochet but not sure if that would need to be the front and back post or just dc around. I used Lyons wool ease and there is plenty of streatch

  24. I made this with the recommended size hook and it fits me fine, but if I go up a size hook will it fit a bigger head size? Thanks for the pattern!!!

  26. I would love a tutorial as I am a new crocheter.

  27. Is there a typing error on row 2 of the brim?

    ReplyDelete
  28. I was able to follow all of the instructions for the hat EXCEPT the flower! (although I wish there was the simple word together as in Row 2: work two (2) FPDC around
    the Ch2 and the first DC TOGETHER of previous Rnd) Any insight on the flower? Puff Stitch: Ch 3, yo, insert hook in same st and draw up a loop,
    repeat 2 more times in same st, (DOES THIS MEAN REPEAT BOTH THE YARN OVER AND THE DRAW UP A LOOP) yo place hook in next st and draw up
    a loop 3 times, yo and draw hook through all loops on your hook, ch
    3, sl st in same st. Sl st in next st. 1 puff made.

    ReplyDelete
  29. The flower directions really confuse me. Are the puff stitches connected to the magic ring? If yes, how? Are they created separately and then attached? If so, how? Thanks.

    ReplyDelete
  30. This instruction confused me in Round 2 you wrote "work two (2) FPDC around
    the Ch2 and the first DC of previous Rnd". Do you mean work two FPDC around them together or two FPDC around each separately?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Work a fpdc around the chain 2 and dc together. The ch2 doesn't count as a dc, so they get crochet together as one.

  32. Hi , I love the hat but, mine doesn't look like the ones pictured. My bill is really small and lays flat on forehead... I guess I expected it to be more like a baseball cap's brim. Can you tell me how to fix it? Thank you!

    ReplyDelete
  33. I was looking at the coral hat again ( I want my brim like that one) and to me it looks like you used thicker yarn than worsted weight or did it differently or something. How do I make my brim look like that one? Thanks again!

  48. I am currently making this hat for my daughter, using chunky yarn, she is 6 and it is fitting great so far. I am to the crochet stockinette part and it is looking correct, except the stockinette side is on the inside of the hat rather than the outside, what am I doing wrong??
