Crocheted Hat

Wednesday, February 8, 2017

Hello blog friends.  I love crocheting in the winter, and I recently crocheted this hat.  It was easy to make and I made it very quickly using thick yarn and a large crochet hook.


Crochet Hat from Julie's Creative Lifestyle

This is my second hat that I have made and I love the way it came out.  It looks good on me and it will keep me very warm, just in time for the big snow storm will have this week!  

I once crocheted my first hat many years ago and it turned out so bad, that it looked like I had made a shower cap! LOL!  Since then I was very hesitant to make another one.  

I was in Michael's shopping and I came across this book, called Quick - Crochet, Complete Instructions for 8 Style HATS.  

This book was very helpful and I picked out a pattern called Super Bulky Hat.  The yarn I used is super bulky and thick, which is great for making a hat to keep you warm in the winter.

I chose thick dark purple yarn from Loops & Threads, Charisma.



Once again I'm glad I challenged myself to try and make another hat.  I found it easy to make, with simple instructions to follow, and the hat is crocheted in the round.  I am very happy with the way this hat turned out and it looks like a hat!


SUPER BULKY HAT

PATTERN:  Found in the book Quick - Crochet, Complete Instructions for 8 Styles HATS.
