Blue Belle in name, Blue Belle in nature!
A regular length hook, a skein of your favourite sport weight, and a quiet weekend is all you need to make this cozy, “Next Step” hat pattern.
This hat is written up to fit 21″, 22″ and 23″ heads, but it can easily be modified with the addition of more rows to fit larger heads, or with more chains at the start of the crown to accommodate more hair.
This pattern uses Tunisian crochet techniques and was designed to be made with a regular, short crochet hook.
Yarn used in sample:
Coolree Silkpaca Sport
Alpaca 80%, Silk 20%)
“Hokusai’s Wave” – 1 skeins (260 m)
Head Circumference: 21″, 22″ & 23″
Hook: 5.5 mm (I Hook)
Blue Belle starts with the head band. By making a string of foundation UK dc/US sc sts you get a stretchy base upon which to work the rest of the hat.
Once complete, the band proper is crocheted in Tunisian Knit Stitch. TKS is elastic and thick, so it makes a great hatband fabric.
After that, it’s a case of working sideways with Tunisian Simple Stitch and a simple, repeating lace pattern to make the crown.
Seam, gather, and you’re done!
