Hi everyone and welcome back. For the 3rd part of this series, the ACWC Free Pattern is this Scoodie. I ran a poll on my group page and this is what ya wanted (some of you anyway) a scoodie.
I love this series and I still will make a poncho and a shawl for the rest of you that wanted that. I really wish that the poll had more participants because I want to make everyone happy and their voice heard.
This ACWC Scoodie is also going to be added to 2017 Annual Holiday Blog Hop.
Amy Cherisse Winter Collection – Crochet Slightly Slouch Hat (AC Winter Collection) for short and the first part is this hat. Since this my first collection I am using my oldest daughters name. This crochet hat pattern will be followed by several more crochet items.
I made this Crochet Slightly Slouch Hat using the dc, FPtr and BPtr stitches making this an intermediate pattern because of the post stitches. This combination seems to create the texture that I love.
Please make sure to visit my group and look at the poll I am taking. I want to involve you all as much as I can in this Crochet Collection.
Is anyone out in the crochet world getting presents ready for Christmas? I have this brand new pattern made using bulky yarn and it’s a messy bun hat. I love teal and tassels, hence the name. It’s a fun hat that works up super quick, you could make so many for Christmas in so many colors! Let me know what you make out of this, as I would love to see the color combinations. Share it with The Country Willow!
I don’t know of anyone that hasn’t really seen this style of hat….The Messy Bun Hat (MBH 101)It’s a craze and I don’t know why. The MBH has been around for ages. I made one in 2011 called the Swizzler’s Hat/Ponytail Hat/ Cowl all in one pattern.
I decided I might as well join the 100’s of seasoned designers and amateur designers and do one of my own! Make these Messy Bun Hats for those joggers in your life, maybe for the one who wears their hair up a lot in the winter, and maybe even the winter sports enthusiasts.
Here is a new hat for you all. It’s the Winter Lovin’ Hat, a free crochet pattern. I have gotten into a rut with this color yarn and I hope that I am not overusing this color. Anyways, the hat measures 21 inches and has an option of a pom pom. I think this hat would awesome is green and wheat too!
Pretty Posies Crochet Beanie, I am so excited to be part of the Holiday Stashdown 2016. The Pretty Posies Crochet Beanie works up from the bottom. I think stripes and the row of posies would be cute in one color. I hope you enjoy this as much as I did making it.
Do you want to take the mystery out of making hats? I struggled with this when I first started to crochet. While making hats, I did some research into how to correctly size your flat circle and height of the hat. The formula I found most helpful to figure out the correct size of the diameter of your flat circle is you need to know the circumference of the head.
An adult woman’s head averages about 22 inches. The formula is to divide your circumference by 3.14 Head circumference 22 divided by 3.14 = 7.00 inches
Now you know your circle needs to be 7 inches. To get the correct height (from top of crown to bottom of the ear) you divide your circumference by 10 and multiply this number times 4.
Head circumference 22 divided by 10 = 2.2 x 4 = 8.8. So the hat height should be 8.8 inches. Hats are made about an inch smaller in circumference than the circumference of the head. This keeps the hat fitting tightly and to keep it from falling off.
Below is a chart for the sizes that you may find helpful.
I hope that this helps all of you that are struggling with making hats!
