Mosaic Hat

January 13, 2023 No comments yet

A Mosaic design uses geometric patterns to create a unique look. This is my first Mosaic crocheted project. It is a Mosaic hat that is crocheted in two colors and has 3 row repeats.

The Mosaic hat pattern isn’t very hard after you get the gist of the pattern. The video found here was very helpful for me to understand how the stitches are placed.

I did have to scale down the size as it was way too big as written. I found that if I crocheted 70 stitches

Basic BLO Hat Pattern

This post presents my basic back loops only (BLO) hat pattern. As you may know, I crochet lots of hats for charity and wanted to have a basic crocheted hat pattern that is worked all in back loops only. The textured look of working all in back loops makes for a raised stitch line on each round.

It is my hope that you will enjoy this pattern and crochet a few hats for your charity of choice using it. So without further ado, here is my free crochet pattern for my back loops only adult hat.

Back Loops Only (BLO) Basic Hat Pattern

Finished adult hat measures flat: 21 inch circumference by 8.25 inches long
Hook: H (5 mm) US sized crochet hook
Materials: 2.5 ozs Wool or Worsted Weight Yarn; and
Small amount of contrasting color for edging (if desired)

With H hook, Ch 4 and join to form ring. (Or use a Magic Circle to start.)

(Ch-2 counts as first Hdc st.)

Cabled Hat Pattern

February 27, 2021 No comments yet

A few weeks ago I introduced the cable scarf pattern and just love this stitch pattern. I decided that it would make a great hat pattern also. I have crocheted this hat pattern using several different hook sizes. The I hook makes a ladies sized hat and smaller men’s sized hat. The J hook creates a large men’s hat. I crochet fairly tight so use the hook you feel is appropriate for your gauge. My gauge with an I hook is 2 inches = 7 stitches and 5 rows. Gauge with a J hook is 2 inches = 6 stitches and 4.5 rows.

This blue hat was crocheted using an I (5.25 mm) crochet hook.

Here is the same hat crocheted using a J (6 mm) crochet hook.

My Cabled Hat Pattern
I (5.25-5.5 mm) crochet hook = Adult 21” cir by 9″ long
J (6 mm) crochet hook = Adult 22” cir by 9.5” long

Yarn – 3.5 ounces worsted weight (medium) 4-ply
Note: Ch 2 at beg of each round counts as DC.

Ch 71. Join to make a ring and making sure your chain is not twisted.
(You will be working in the round and not turning your work as you crochet this hat.)

Ch 1, Sc into the 2nd bump loop in the back of the chain to create a smooth edge.
