Crazy Crocheted Ski Hat Pattern



CRAZY CROCHETED SKI HAT
Give it a <3 or add it to your Ravelry queue here.

Materials:

  • Size I hook
  • Worsted weight yarn (approx. 3 oz of assorted colors.)  You can use any variety of colors you wish to customize your hat.  I started with one row of black and then did two rows of color and repeated that sequence throughout.  If you choose to only use two color you can carry those colors instead of cutting at the end of each color section. 
  • yarn needle
Gauge: 3 dc rows = 2 inches,  6 dc = 2 inches

Note: Chain 3 at beginning of each row counts as a stitch.

Stitches and Terms used:

  • ch - chain
  • dc - double crochet
  • sl st - slip stitch
  • beg - beginning.
  • st (sts) - stitch (stitches)
  • fpdc - front post double crochet
  • sc - single crochet

Round 4: Ch 3, dc in each st around.   Sl st in top of beg ch 3 to join. (9 sts)
Rounds 5 - 12: Repeat rows 3 and 4. (you should have 13 sts by the end of Round 11)
Rounds 13 - 23: Ch 3, dc in same st as beg ch 3, dc in each st around.  Sl st in top of beg ch 3 to join. (increases 1 st each row, 24 sts by end of Round 23)

Round 37: Ch 1, sc in each st around.  Sl st in top of beg sc to join.
Round 38: Sl st loosely in each st around.  Finish off. 

Pom Pom Chain:  Ch 12, sl st in round 1 of hat, sl st in each ch to beginning.  Cut and tie off.  Leave 4-6 inches of yarn at the beginning and end of the chain to attach pom pom to.

Pom Pom:  Using a deck of cards or something of similar size, wrap yarn around until approximately 2" wide and 1/2" thick. Using the pieces of yarn at the ends of the Pom Pom chain, thread these through the center of the wrapped yarn and tie a tight knot.  Remove from wrapped yarn from deck and you will have what resembles a circle.  Flatten yarn circle in half with tied portion in middle and tie again with a secure knot.  Cut folded ends and fluff yarn.  Trim to desired shape.
