gray felted hat crocheted
Once again, it's an Anastacia original hat!
4 ounces of a bulky wool yarn. I used yarn from a wool sweater that I recycled for the yarn.
J or K hook to produce a loose gauge of 2.4 dc to the inch
Ch 2, 4 sc in 2nd chain from hook. Mark beginning of round.
2 dc in each 2 sc.
Next round: 1 dc in first dc, 2 dc in next dc. Work around.
Next round: 1 dc in next two dc, 2 dc in next round. Work around.
Keep increasing in pattern until work measures approximately 8.5".
Work easy lace pattern:
round 1: dc, chain 1, skip next dc, and work around.
Round 2: work even.
Repeat the 2 rows for approximately 12.
Yes, this looks like a monster hat! End off, weave in ends.
Throw in the washer on hot. Mine went in for about 20 minutes, and was still a little large, but fits my hubby perfectly. He's since stolen it for his very own.
