One Hat, Two Hats, Old Hat, New Hats!

Three hats to share today and all of them are free!

First on the menu is my very first pattern.  It has never been blogged here, but I feel like the timing is right.

The Combination Summer Hat is Crochet with a bit of Knitting that is perfect for summer.  The pattern has been given a face lift and you can find it at both Ravelry and Craftsy using the links at the top of the page.  It comes in one band size with three lengths, (similar to the Brambles Beret)


Next, I have a brand new knit beanie.  Only one color is worked at a time with slipped stitches galore.

And lastly, a new crochet beanie, twin to the knit hat above.

These three hats all have something fun to offer a crafter.  I can make the Combination Summer Hat in about an hour, so it has become my favorite last-minute gift lately.

The Knit Mint Chocolate Beanie has a more methodical pace, but it is a lot of fun to watch the colors swirl simply by slipping stitches.

The Crochet Mint Chocolate Beanie uses completely different techniques than the Knit version, (out of necessity, of course) and relies on working stitches into previous rows and decorating the fabric with front post double crochet.

I had so much fun with each of these patterns.  I hope you will too!

    Hi Manda. How do I get the revised Combination Summer Hat? I keep getting the old 2010 pattern that doesn’t have the corrections.

    Has anyone tried Red Heart worsted weight yarn (4) for this pattern? Thanks for sharing your crochet talent:)
