Here is a pattern for a pretty little rolled-brim beanie hat, with a textured stitching.



This hat pattern is free and will always remain FREE.


Rolled Brim Textured Hat

A pretty little rolled-brim beanie hat, with a textured stitching.  I made this hat for a special friend going through chemo.  I hope some of you will consider using it similarly, as a donation to those very brave and very wonderful women.   There, but for the grace of God, go you and I. 

Materials:  1 skein worsted weight yarn (aran/10ply). I used Stylecraft Special in “Raspberry”; 5mm hook, 5.5mm hook and 4.5mm hook; yarn needle.

Abbreviations:  sc = single crochet; dc = double crochet; fpdc = front post double crochet; sl st = slip stitch; hdc = half double crochet.

Gauge:  16 sts and 12 rows on 5mm hook, single crochet = 4”.

Pattern is written in US terms, a conversion chart is included at the end.


Pattern:

Work in the round, not joining at the ends of each row, but place a stitch marker and continue on.

Row 1:  With 5mm hook, make a magic circle, ch2, work 8 hdc into ring.  Sl st to beg hdc. (8)

Row 2:  2 hdc into every stitch around (16)

Row 3: *2 hdc into next st; 1 hdc into next st;* rep to end (24)

Row 4: *2 hdc into next st, 1 hdc into next 2 sts;* rep to end (32)

Row 5: *2 hdc into next st, 1 hdc into next 3 sts;* rep to end (40)

Row 6: *2 hdc into next st, 1 hdc into next 4 sts;* rep to end (48)

Row 7:  *2 hdc into next st, 1 hdc into next 5 sts;* rep to end (56)

Row 8:  hdc around entire row

Row 9: *fpdc in first stitch (around hdc from prev row); hdc in next stitch (top of hdc from prev row).* rep to end.

Row 10: *hdc in top of fpdc from prev row; fpdc in next st (around hdc from prev row).*  rep to end.

Row 11:  *fpdc around hdc from prev row; hdc in top of fpdc from prev row* rep to end.

Repeat Rows 10 and 11 to 7”, or desired length.


Border and roll band:

Change to 5.5mm hook

Row 1:  *sc in next 3 sts, 2 sc in next* rep from * to * last st, 2 sc in last st.

Row 2: *sc in next 4 sts, 2 sc in next* rep from * to * to last 2 sts; 2 sc then 1 sc in last st.

Rows 3-6: sc all around for these 4 rows.

Change to 4.5mm hook

Row 7: sc all around

Row 8:  sl st around entire row.  This, along with the change to the smaller hook, will cause the band to roll inwards, as in the picture.

Fasten off and weave in ends.
