I was asked to design a couple of feminine, lacy hats for Christmas presents. This is one of them. It is a very easy pattern to follow and looks very chic and complicated when finished.
The two I will make, should my yarn ever arrive, will have smaller and more flowers, pearls, and leaves.
This hat is a woman or older teen size. If you wish to make a small child size I would suggest going down to an F hook.
DK weight yarn, I used Premier Ever Soft which is rated a worsted but is much thinner. Sport weight is a great choice.
Tapestry needle to sew in tails.
PLEASE READ THE ENTIRE PATTERN BEFORE BEGINNING
If you have any questions feel free to contact me.
Please note, each round is joined in the top of the beginning chain 3 with a slip stitch. This will not be noted at the end of each round but taken as a given.
The beginning chain 3 always counts as 1 dc. The exception being round 2, beginning with a ch 4 which counts as 1 chain and 1 dc.
Where it states dc in same stitch it is always in the join where your ch 3 is.
Rnd 1: Leave at least a 3 inch tail, make a magic circle, ch 3, 15 dcs in the MC, gently pull tail to close. Join
Rnd 2: Ch 4, (this counts as 1ch and 1 dc) * 1 dc in next st, ch 1*. Join 16 dcs and 16 chs
Rnd 3: Ch 3, dc in same st, ch1, * 2 dcs in next st, ch1* repeat around. Join
Rnd 4: Ch 3, dc in next st, ch2, * 1 dc in next 2 sts, ch 2* repeat around. Join
Rnd 5: Ch 3, dc in same st, dc in next st, ch2, * 2 dc in next st, 1 dc in next st, ch2* repeat around. Join
Rnd 6: Ch 3, dc in same st, 1 dc in next 2 sts, ch2, * 2 dcs in next st, 1 dc in next 2 sts, ch 2* repeat around. Join
Rounds 7 thru 13: Repeat round 6.
Try your hat on, if you require a longer hat repeat round 6. I always must add an extra row when using the G hook because I crochet tightly. I usually jump to a size 7 hook which is not a common US hook. Those using the Tulip Etimo hook sets will find they do have this hook and if you crochet very tightly you might want to go up a size.
Rnd 1: Ch1, hdc in joining, hdc in next 3 sts, 2 hdcs in ch 2 sp, * 1 hdc in next 4 sts, 2 hdcs in ch sp. Join
Rnd 2: Ch1, hdc in joining, and next 4 sts, 2 hdcs in next st, *hdc in next 5 sts, 2 hdcs in next st* around. Join
Rnd 3: Ch1, 1 hdc in each st around.
Rnd 4: Ch1, hdc in joining, hdc in next 2 sts, 2 hdcs in next st, 1 hdc in next 3 sts, * 1 hdc in next 3 sts, 2 hdcs in next st, 1 hdc in next 3 sts. Join
Rnd 5: Repeat round 3.
Rnd 6: Ch1, sc in joining, 1 sc in each st around. Join and sew in tails.
I ran ribbon through the last round and tied with a bow to the side.
