  1. Hi everyone, I have been making tons of hats recently with Caron One Pound, and unfortunately due to that I have figured out what size hat I can make from this yarn. Unfortunately the color I need to make my next hat is not made in Caron One Pound. Does anyone have a yarn that they recommend that is the same thickness? I tried I love this yarn from Hobby Lobby and that made the hat way smaller. Luckily it is stretchy soft yarn. Also I can not use Red Heart, so that is not an option. Thanks in advance for everyones help.
  2. Sounds interesting. I think I might be in on this one. I want to crochet some butterflies for the Houston Holocaust Museum.
  3. Thank you everyone for posting. I am so glad that the pattern worked out for some of you. Since it was my first pattern to write, I was afraid that it would have errors. Please feel free to let me know if anyone notices any errors.
  4. So I thought I would move this thread over to the Free Original Patterns, since I figured out how to make the hat from Title Nine that I was looking at. Here is the link for my inspiration: http://www.titlenine.com/product/cold-weather-gear/womens-hats-gloves-scarves/713377.do?sortby=ourPicks Here is the link for the original post that I posted: http://www.crochetville.org/forum/showthread.php?t=132604 Below is the pattern that I wrote up. It has not been tested by others, so if there is anything that I need to clear up or change please let me know. I hope everyone enjoys. Oh, and one of the other women was nice enough to make this into a pdf for me, but for some reason it would not work as an attachment on here, not sure if it has something to do with my computer or something else. I would be happy to email it to anyone that is interested though. Beanie Inspired by Title Nine Beanie J Hook Used Caron One Pound yarn MB: (Make Bobble: Yo and insert hook into designated st. yo draw a loop through the st, yo draw through 2 loops. You will now have 2 loops remaining on your hook. *Yo insert hook into same st. Yo draw a loop through the st. Yo and draw through 2 loops on the hook* 2 times. You will have a total of 4 loop on the hook. Draw through all 4 loops. Now you have made a bobble.) Hat: Ch 4 and make a circle. 1. Ch 3, counts as first dc. Then 11 dc more sts in circle (12 dc) 2. Ch 2, 1 dc in same st, then 2 dc in each st after (24 dc) close row with sl st 3. Ch 2, *1 dc in next st, then 2 dc on next st* (repeat from * to *) close w/sl st (36 dc) 4. Ch 2, *1 dc in next 2 sts, then 2 dc in next st* close with sl st (48 dc) 5. Ch 2, *1 dc in next 3 sts, then 2 dc in next st* close with sl st (60 dc) 6. Ch 2, *1 dc in next 4 sts, then 2 dc in next st* close with sl st (72 dc) 7. Ch 2, BPHdc in each st, close with sl st (72 BPHdc) 8. Ch 1 turn, sc in each st, close with sl st (72 sc) 9. Ch 1 *1 sc in next 2 sts, 1 MB (make bobble) in next st* close with sl st (48 sc & 24 MB) 10. Ch 1 sc in each st, close with sl st (72 sc) 11. Ch 1 1 sc in next st, *1MB in next st, 1 sc in next 2 sts* 1 MB, 1 sc in next st close with sl st (48 sc & 24 MB) Here is the fun part, trying to get the bobbles to stagger, so they are not in a line. You might have to do the alternate for step 11 if this does not work. 11. Alt. Ch 1 *1 MB in next st, 1 sc in next 2 sts* close with sl st (48 sc & 24 MB) 12. Ch 1 sc in each st, close with sl st (72 sc) 13-19. Repeat 9-12 making sure that your bobbles are staggered. 20. Ch 2, BPHdc in each st, close with sl st (72 BPHdc) 21. Ch 1 turn sc in each st, close with sl st (72 sc) 22. Ch 1 sc in each st, close with sl st fasten off (72 sc) Brim: Fold hat in half with back seam going down the middle. Use this seam to find the middle of your hat in the front. Your brim will be 22 sts long so count out 11 to each side from the middle. Use markers to mark your sts, so that it is 22 across. I just slid a piece of contrasting yarn in each st. 1. Rt side facing you join yarn in first marked st, sc in this first st, 1 hdc in next st, 1 dc in next 2 sts, 1 trc in next 14 sts, 1 dc in next 2 sts, 1 hdc in next st, 1 sc in last st, close with sl st (2 sc, 2 hdc, 4 dc, 14 trc) 2. Ch 1 turn, 1 sc in next 2 sts, 1 hdc in next 2 sts, 1 dc in next 14 sts, 1 hdc in next 2 sts, 1 sc in next 2 sts, close with sl st (4 sc, 4 hdc, 14 dc) 3. Ch 1 turn, 1 sc in each st, close with sl st (72 sc) Note: This can easily be changed for different size heads. You can easily stop at 60 sts and just do that round one more time before you go into step 8 or you can easily use a smaller hook. My head measures about 22 ½ inches if that helps and this came out comfortable, not too loose and not too tight. Good luck and enjoy. I know I will make this hat again and if there are any corrections I will definitely add them.
  5. No prob, I am just glad that others get to enjoy it too.
  6. Thanks DebraKay, it is pretty much FPdc and BPdc. Nothing too special, but it works well for boys and he likes it, which is all that matters. The brim is the exact way I did mine and I stopped at 60sts around, since his head isn't quite as big as mine.
  7. Here is the hat I made for my oldest son, after he saw mine and had to have one of his own. Needless to say I didn't put bobbles on his, because I wanted to do something more masculine for him.
  8. Thanks ladies. If you notice any corrections I need to make after you try out this pattern, please let me know.
  9. That is the problem I have, so that is why I am afraid this pattern will be too big for others, but I have found, that sometimes using a bigger hook works and other times you just have to add some extra stitches in. Most hats I find use about 60 sts around. This one I used 72. Good luck on your next hat project.
  10. So here is my take on the Title Nine Beanie. I tried to put it on here as an attachment, but it would not take it, so I am going to try to copy and paste.

  11. Also if anyone is interested I wrote out the pattern as best as I could. This is my first pattern to write out, so I am sure there are some kinks in it.
  12. Okay here is the finished product. Hopefully this attachment worked. If not I will have to find another way to show it to everyone. Let me know what you think. If you go back to my original post you can click on the link to see my inspiration.
  13. Thanks ReniC I knew it would be pretty much impossible, so I was already planning on cutting and splicing. I was just hoping that there was someone out there, that had already done the legwork for me. Now on to the task at hand.
  14. Uh oh, just realized that this is a pattern, that I have to buy. I might try to figure it out myself first before I pay for the pattern. Thanks again ladies. Let me know if anyone else has any ideas.
  15. Thank you FrLopLady. I have been in the process of working my way through the ravelry patterns. I think the popcorn pattern might be my best bet and just start the top off with hdc. We will see. Now I just need to go and raid my yarn stash and see what I have to work with.
