It’s been 5 years since I first crocheted a baseball type cap from recycled plastic bags. Recently someone asked me to clarify some of the pattern details so I thought it might be a good idea to re-work the pattern.
If you read my blog last month, you might remember me blogging about these pretty pink plastic bags that an on-line friend sent me. Well I used them to create pink plarn and crocheted this recycled baseball cap using about 20 plastic bags.
The pattern worked up a little different with this crochet project but generally the hat came out looking about the same. I did have to decrease a bit to get the hat tighter on my head and add another row to the brim portion of the hat. Here is the original crocheted recycled plastic baseball pattern with the changes noted in the post.
I probably will donate this pink plarn cap to this year’s Relay for Life campaign. I usually try and donate few pink handmade items to support the organization.
Now that I have crocheted the recycled plastic hat pattern again, I added additional details to the pattern and remind everyone to check the shell for fit before you get too far into the main hat portion. As with this pink cap, it was looser than the tan one I made first. Anyway just check the fit by round 7 and adjust the stitches as needed to get a snug fit.
Please email me should you have any questions as you work the hat pattern. I’m always here to help anyone with my patterns.
