Panda Baby Hat

The panda is now classified as a bear again! What a shocker. They seems so adorable and cuddly, just like newborn babies. What better way to keep the little ones warm than with little panda hats of their own?

This panda baby hat is made with two strands of yarn crocheted at the same time. It could also be done with bulky yarn or with one strand of medium worsted weight yarn and one strand of fun fur. The ears, eye spots, nose and snout are all crocheted separately and sewn on. Even so, this is a quick project.

Baby Aviator Hat

With this pattern, your little one will be flying high in no time! This is an adorable and quick hat to crochet, especially since it is crocheted with a large hook and with two strands of yarn at the same time. It could also be crocheted using bulky yarn instead. I designed this pattern so I could take some more fun hats to the Army hospital in town.

Sock Monkey Baby Hat

Sock Monkey is a doll traditionally made from a sock. There is no hard and fast rule on how one has to look. I used yarns in my stash though any colors will do. This baby hat is made with two strands held double and crocheted at the same time. The eyes, mouth, ears and pom pom are all made with one strand. The Ragg color is a grey/white blend. The yarn was made that way but it is not necessary to use bi-colored yarn. A similar effect can be achieved by using one strand of grey and one strand of white when crocheting. An alternate color is a brown and white. For that matter, any colors can be used. A pink and white held together would make for an adorable girl monkey hat (see picture). These hats were made for the local Army hospital neonatal unit.

Yarn:      Red Heart Super Saver Solid Burgundy (red)

Red Heart Ragg (grey/white)

Hook:    L11/8.00mm for the hat

Skull Cap for Logan

One of the kids in the youth group saw the skull hat I knit for my husband and he asked if I could make him one. Because I crochet faster than I knit, I decided to design a crocheted one for him. The hat is made starting from the brim and works to the top. The brim is crocheted in rows in the rib stitch. This pattern assumes you already know how to change colors when crocheting and how to read a chart. You can use the fair isle or intarsia method for changing colors.  I did a modified fair isle where I stranded the yarn not used in the back for about every other stitch and crochet over top the unused color every other stitch just in the area where the skull pattern was. I did not carry the red yarn around the back of the hat. I started a new piece of red yarn for each row. This made for quite a few ends to weave in, but kept the inside of the hat neat and clean looking.

 

Materials

Yarn: Two colors of medium worsted weight yarn of your choice: hat color (black) and skull color (red). Red Heart yarn is pictured.

Hook: H/8/5.00mm

Skull Chart in PDF format

Yarn Needle for sewing in ends (optional)

Gauge: 3 sc = 1 inch; 3 rows = 1 inch

Size Made: 8 inches from brim to top and 10 ½ inches across when laid flat. This fits a teen/adult female head.

Hat Instructions

Black (or hat color)

Ch 6

Row 1: Sc in second ch from hook and next four ch stitches. (5)

Row 2-68: Ch 1, turn. Sc in back loops only of each st across. (5)

Row 69: Bring rows 1 and 68 together to form the brim of the hat making sure it’s not twisted. Sc row 1 to row 68. (5)

 

From this point forward you will be working in rounds. Turn the brim so you can work along the end/top of each row.

Rnd 1: Sc on the end of each row. Join with a slip stitch. (68)

Rnd 2: Ch 1, 31 sc. Start the skull pattern from the chart.The 31 sc takes you to the first color change at the bottom of the chart where the teeth start. The chart is read from right to left. Each stitch not on the chart, the back side of the hat, is done in single crochet with no increases or decreases. When you get to the end of the round, do not join. Continue working in rounds. (68)

Rnd 3: Skip the ch 1 stitch from rnd 2. Continue around using the chart as a guide.

Rnd 4-18: Use the chart to complete the skull pattern. Each stitch not on the chart is single crocheted with no increases or decreases. There are three decreases in each of the rows 16-18. The blackened spaces on the chart should be ignored as they are the stitches taken out by the decreases of previous rows. They do not count as single crochets or decreases. Consider them non-stitches.

Stitch count after each decrease round:

Rnd 16 (65)

Rnd 17 (62)

Rnd 18 (59)

 

59 stitches left after completing the skull pattern.

Rnd 19: 3 sc. *Dec, 6 sc* seven times. (52)

Rnd 20: 3 sc. *Dec, 5 sc* seven times. (45)

Rnd 21: 3 sc. *Dec, 4 sc* seven times. (38)

Rnd 22: 3 sc. *Dec, 3 sc* seven times. (31)

Rnd 23: 3 sc. *Dec, 2 sc* seven times. (24)

Rnd 24: 3 sc. *Dec, sc* seven times. (17)

Rnd 25: Sc. *Dec* seven times.(10)

Rnd 26: Dec five times. (5)

Finish off. Cut yarn leaving a long tail. Pull yarn through each of the remaining stitches and pull tight to close the top. Weave in end.

 

For a taller hat, I did fewer decreases in each row. For the very long hat I did about 1-2 decreases per row and changed colors approximately every 8 rows.

 

Pom-Pom Topper

Ch 13

Row 1: Sc in second ch from hook, 11 sc. (12)

Cut yarn leaving a long tail for sewing to the top of the hat.

Make a pom-pom. Attach that to the end of the pom-pom topper.

 

How to make a simple pom-pom: For a quick and easy pom-pom, I wrap the yarn around my hand several times. The more wraps, the thicker the pom-pom. I pull the yarn off my hand and pull a piece of yarn through the middle and tie it tightly around the strands that used to be at the top of my hand. I cut the strands that were at the bottom of my hand and trim the ends so they are somewhat even. The pom-pom can then be attached to the topper. I use the same piece of yarn that I used to tie the pom-pom.

 

Baby Bear Hat

A local hospital is in need of baby items, so I thought I’d make the classic bear hat. In lieu of bulky yarn, I decided to make this hat with two strands of yarn held together. Though the ears look cute with just the regular yarn, I decided to add the fun fur to give it some extra cuteness. Though it looks nice with the fun fur, it can be a little difficult to work with. It tends to cover the stitches making them hard to see, but it is worth the effort. I can’t guarantee the sizing as I don’t have access to a baby or even a doll! I am guessing it’s for a 6-12 month old or so.

Berry Eggplant Hat

One of the cutest baby hats I’ve seen has been the berry hat. With my new knitting skills at the ready, I made my very first berry hat. I was going for plum, but unfortunately, my husband informed me that it resembles more of an eggplant! I guess children love eggplants, because the little girl that received it has practically worn it out!

The pattern comes from Michele Sabatier which I found on Ravelry.com. I used size 8 double pointed needles and Simply Soft yarn. It is a quick and easy pattern. I highly recommend it.

Fair Isle vs. Intarsia

Back in 1994 I crocheted a Precious Moments afghan for my parents. Up until this project I thought one only used one color at a time when crocheting. However, I wanted to make the afghan with multiple colors. I simply cut and tied together the colors as they came up. I had never heard of Fair Isle or intarsia. If only I had! I probably could have finished the project a little faster, though the end result would have been much the same.

What are Fair Isle and intarsia? They are forms of changing colors while knitting or crocheting. More commonly associated with knitting, Fair Isle and intarsia can be used successfully with single crochet. Though both result in projects with images or patterns, how the color is changed is different. The Precious Moments afghan was done in a format similar to intarsia though not in true fashion since I cut the yarn and tied on the new color at each color change.

Fair Isle

In Fair Isle knitting or crocheting, two or more colors are used and carried along to be used as the pattern calls for it. It is carried loosely in the back when knitting and crocheted over/on top of when crocheting. Traditional Fair isle uses two colors per row or round. Two colors for knitting leaves only one color “stranded” alongthe back/wrong side. Two colors for crocheting means only one strand of yarn is hidden or crocheted over. The disadvantage of carrying multiple strands when crocheting is that it gets harder to to hide multiple strands as the stitches gets thicker around. This can also distort the size of the row.

Fair Isle knit skull hat

Intarsia

Intarsia is the use of multiple colors on multiple balls or bobbins. Each color is used and then dropped when the color is changed. The appropriate strand of yarn is picked back up and used on the way back across the row. For knitting, this requires picking up the new color from under the old color so the yarn is twisted together and a hole is not formed. For crocheting, the color may still need to be carried on a previous row a stitch or two like in the Fair Isle method if the color does not resume right above the previous row.

Crocheted Fair Isle and Intarsia Pillow

Fair Isle and Intarsia often use charts rather than detailed row by row written instructions. These charts can be used for knitting and crocheting. The stitch sizes in knitting and crocheting are slightly different, but will still work well when single crocheted. Half double and double crochets elongate the stitches which will distort the image. There will also be longer strands made when picking up “dropped” yarn from previous rows.

Fair Isle and intarsia designs can be made from any graph. If you can graph it, you can knit/crochet it. The sky truly is the limit. Check out the Graph It post for some ideas on making your own graph.

Android Hat

Want to be the man in the machine? Now you can with this crocheted Android hat! I designed this hat for my brother-in-law who is somewhat of an expert on Droid. (You can check out his website, Use My Droid, for lots of tips and tricks.) This hat can be made with or without arms, and though I added a lining, one is not required.

Placement

Eyes: The eyes are somewhat wide originally, but when the hat is worn, the eyes seem farther apart. Sew them on approximately two rows above the white and 6 stitches apart.

Antennae: They are sewn on round 5 at the midline.

Arms: These can be sewn on the ends of the extensions of the hat or on the white band. For best results, the hat should be tried on and the arms sewn where the ears line up.

Optional: A fleece lining can be sewn inside.
