Brick Street Hat

Brick Street Hat

bsharan2dd.jpg bsharan6dd.jpg


A beautifully textured hat, fast and easy to make.  In all sizes from newborn right up to Adult.


Sizes:  


0-3 months 12-14” Circumference; 5.5” length
3-6 months 14-16” Circumference; 6” length
6-12 months 16-17” Circumference; 6.5” length
1-3 years 18-19” Circumference; 7” length
3-10 years 19-20” Circumference; 7.5” length
Teens/Small Women 20-21” Circumference; 8” length
Adult 21-23” Circumference; 8.5-9” length

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


Materials:


50-100g Worsted Weight Yarn #4; I used Hayfield Bonus Aran with 20% wool.  I also tried this in Vanna’s Choice #4 and the results were almost identical.


4mm, 4.5mm, 5mm hooks; Yarn needle for weaving in ends


Hooks are used for different sizes as follows:


4mm (G) 0-3 months; 3-6 months
4.5mm 1-3 years; Teens/Small Women
5mm (H) 6-12 months; 3-10 years; Adult


Gauge:  


On 4mm (G) hook 13 sts and 12 rows = 4”
On 4.5mm hook 11 sts and 12 rows = 4”
On 5mm (H) hook 10 sts and 10 rows =4”


If you find your gauge working out smaller or larger, substitute a different size hook to compensate.


Pattern Notes:


The pattern is worked over first 6 rows, then a repetition of 5 rows.  The repeat is very simple, but you must place a stitch marker and be sure to keep track of which row you are on, so that the start of the row is correct. To get the correct texture, work each hdc into the space between stitches, not as you normally would, through the top 2 loops of the stitch.  


You can make this hat any size you wish, as long as you maintain a multiple of 5 sts.  


Pattern is worked in rounds; do not join at the end of a row; place a stitch marker so that you can keep track of the 1st stitch of each row.


Working into the 3rd loop of a hdc.  On every hdc you will find that there are 2 loops on the top of the stitch, as with most stitches, which create the usual “v” along the top, a front loop and a back loop.  There is also a 3rd loop towards the back of the stitch, just behind the back loop, which you can work into to make a defined ridge around the hat.  You will need this technique for the border.  


Abbreviations:


sc = single crochet; fphdc = front post half double crochet; hdc = half double crochet; rep = repeat; st/s = stitch/es; beg = beginning; sl st = slip stitch; blo = back loop only


Difficulty:  Easy


Stitch Pattern for the main body of the hat:   


Row 1:  *fphdc, hdc 4; rep from * to end


Row 2:   hdc 3; *fphdc, hdc 4; rep from * to last 2 sts, fphdc in next st; hdc in next st


Row 3:   hdc 1; *fphdc, hdc 4; rep from * to last 4 sts, fphdc, hdc 3


Row 4:   hdc 4; *fphdc, hdc 4; rep from * to last st; fphdc


Row 5:   hdc 2, *fphdc, hdc 4; rep from * to last 3 sts; fphdc, hdc 2


Row 6:   hdc 5; *fphdc; hdc 4; repeat from * to end


To continue in pattern, repeat Rows 2-6 as many times as required for length.
