I’ve been busy lately crocheting more hats for the Warmth for Warriors group. One of my on-line group friends crocheted a cute hat using a ribbed stitch style that I really liked. After some help from Ellen, I finally got the pattern created. Below is the written crochet hat pattern that I created featuring the ribbed band that was inspired by Ellen from our Ravelry group.
The two-toned wool hat is my favorite using the crochet pattern so far. I used the pattern below and at round 7 switched from the olive green to the oatmeal colored wool yarn. Then you alternate every other round in the two colors ending at round 20 with the olive green yarn. I carried the yarn not in use behind by just dropping it at my joining slip stitch. When you come back around you just pick up the dropped color at the slip stitch.
At row 21, I began the ribbing with the olive green wool. Make sure you use the same color in round 20 that you use for the ribbing so the first round of ribbing matches that you are working the front and back posts around.
Here is another version of the ribbed hat and in an extra large size. This one is crocheted all in one color and was designed more as a helmet cap to fit under a soldier’s helmet. I started with 16 double crochet (Dc) stitches and only went to round 15 following my original crocheted helmet hat pattern. I then added the ribbing rounds to complete the hat. It measures 23″ for a circumference and is 8-1/2” long.
As you can see you can change up the pattern’s fit and look by working in half-double (Hdc) or double crochet (Dc) stitches. And by working in stripes or all in one color of yarn. I have also included changes to crochet this hat for a child’s head size.
Have fun with the pattern and as always happy crocheting to all.

I crocheted the Circle of Friends 8 inch square and just loved the pattern. I decided to use this pretty purple square for the center of my preemie baby blanket. I’m participating again this year in the NICU Christmas baby blanket drive that Kathryn heads up each year. If you are interested, you can join us on Crochetville or through Facebook now.
After crocheting the 8 inch square in purple Berroco Ultra Alpaca yarn, I added a round using a light-colored lilac yarn by working double crochet (DC) stitches around the square. In the corner, I worked 2DC, Ch-2, 2DC in each corner space around. I worked one additional round in the purple yarn before finishing the basic portion of the blanket in the light lilac yarn. I ran short of yarn so I added the edging using a Red Heart pale plum yarn by crocheting my scalloped edging that I first used on my scalloped baby hats.
The scalloped edging was added by attaching the pale plum yarn, then working single crochet (SC) in each stitch and […]
I used my simple men’s fingerless glove pattern to crochet these felted gloves. While the original pattern fits a man’s hand, these felted gloves fit a woman’s hand just fine after felting. They actually fit my hands okay before felting but now with the stitches felted, they fit even more snugly and are nice and warm.
Here are the gloves before I felted them.
I felted the gloves in a pot of hot water on my stove. I used a wooden spoon to stir them and agitated the wool to aid in the felting process. After the hot water bath, I did a cold water rinse and repeated the process one more time to complete the felting of the gloves.
So whether you just want a pair of fingerless gloves or a felted pair, try my free crochet pattern […]
I have been on a towel topper crocheting frenzy lately. Here are several of my recent finish offs to share. These were done without sewing and just crocheting into the top layer of the towel. The first one is crocheted in blue cotton with the towel topper added along the top edge. The towel is folded in half with the topper then added which creates a double layered towel.
Next is a towel also folded in half and green cotton used to add the towel topper.
These towel toppers were made using my free crocheted pointed handle towel topper pattern. They require no cutting and no sewing of the towels. Several people have asked me about the number of stitches to do along the top. The answer is […]
Here are several more crocheted mini Christmas stockings I made for the Warmth for Warriors drive. These stockings feature a scalloped top edging.
The socks were crocheted using this Christmas stocking pattern which I just modified a bit. The edging was then added to the top of the sock by crocheting a scalloped edging and a hanging loop. The first two I used a lightweight yarn for the scalloped edge so I only worked 4 DC between 1 skipped stitch. The pattern is as follows:
Attach lightweight yarn at back heel edge of sock with a single crochet (SC) […]
I love crocheting! I don’t know if you all know that but it’s true. I get caught up at times or as DH says obsessed with crocheting. I crochet with recycled plastic bags, vcr video and cassette tapes, and I crochet with t-shirts cut into yarn and I crochet with yarn. I’ll crochet with just about any material I can get my hands on. Anyway with that being said, I’ll share some of my latest crocheting.
I present my cotton candy baby set. The material looks like spun cotton candy as I used a strand of pink worst weight yarn along with a white fingering yarn held together when I crocheted these items. I followed my cuffed baby booties crochet pattern to make the booties. The hat is just a basic beanie and I added my scalloped crocheted edging to the hat to finish it off.
I just love these booties and the crochet pattern is free.[…]
A friend at Ravelry shared this pretty crocheted scalloped hat edging. It just looked so nice on the baby hat she crocheted that I wanted to try it.
You can use any baby or child’s hat pattern you have and just add this crocheted scalloped edging to the beanie once it’s finished. The pink and blue baby hats were crocheted using a basic beanie pattern. I then added the edging to both. The only difference is that the blue hat has a round of single crochet stitching around it before I added the scallop edging round.
Turn, Sc in back loops only working on the inside of the hat so the scallops face out when folded to the outside of finished hat.[…]
Here is my free crochet pattern for a wavy ripple dishcloth. I first used this wavy ripple style to crochet a lapghan and just love the look of the stitch pattern. So after some trial and errors, I came up with a dishcloth using blue tie-dye cotton Sugar ‘n Cream yarn.
Here is another dishcloth I crocheted using the wavy ripple pattern. I ran out of the pink twist cotton yarn so I only crocheted 13 rows. I added a white edging around the entire dishcloth by working single crochet stitches around evenly. I worked 2 single crochet stitches in the corners. This trim edging gives the dishcloth a little different look and may be useful it you are trying to use up scrap pieces of cotton.
My crochet pattern may be used to make a wavy ripple dishcloth or washcloth. Mix and match colors to create your own unique crocheted cloths.
