Crochet Beanie with Brim

3 Apr

These two hats were fun to make. They were a special request for a little guy battling cancer, and I was glad to make them! The first hat, I made to look like Lightning McQueen. Ka-chow! I really love how it turned out. The second was navy with white and red bands.

I started with my standard beanie pattern using Red Heart Super Saver yarn and an H hook:

Chain 3, 12 DC first chain, join to first DC, chain 2
Round 2: 2 DC in each around, join, chain 2 (24 DC)
Round 3: 2 DC in first, DC in next, repeat around, join, chain 2 (36 DC)
Round 4: 2 DC in first, DC in next 2, repeat around, join, chain 2 (48 DC)
Round 5: 2 DC in first, DC in next 3, repeat around, join, chain 2 (60 DC)
Round 6: 2 DC in first, DC in next 14, join, chain 2 (64 DC)
Round 7-15: DC in each around, join, chain 2 (64 DC)
Round 16: DC in each around, join, and finish off. Weave in ends.

Then, I added a brim similar to the Mario and Luigi hats I just did:

Count 21 from seam. SC in front loop of next 22 st.
Ch 1, turn. SC in 22 st.
Ch 1, turn, SC in 22 st.
Ch 1, turn. SC2tog, SC in next 18, SC2tog in last 2 (20)
Ch 1, turn. SC2tog, SC in next 16, SC2tog in last 2 (18)
Ch 1, turn. SC2tog, SC in next 14, SC2tog in last 2 (16)
Ch 1, turn. SC2tog, SC in next 12, SC2tog in last 2 (14)
Finish off

Finally, I did a SC along the entire beanie and brim.
