The Everybody Hat

 

Hey guys!

 

Welcome back to the blog!

 

Today, I wanted to share with you my latest design, which is super simple because I love simple (doesn’t everybody?) and super chunky. If you’ve been following me for a while now, you know that I’m a Californian and, as a Californian, we love to talk about the weather.

 

Because it’s either beautiful, or hot, or 3 days of rain that leave various areas in pandemonium.

 

I love California.

 

So I think this will have to be the last of my cold-weather items for the next few months? I want to re-focus the energies on looking forward. I’m thinking more summery items and planning ahead for fall holidays. I happen to also be planning my wedding right now (I just started dress shopping the other day!!!), so the more I can do ahead of time, the better it will honestly be for me in the long run! Heyyy. I thought I would break out this little gem of a hat which might be helpful for those of you in actually cold parts of the world: The Everybody Hat.

Why is it called The Everybody Hat? Because everybody can wear it and it’s simple enough that everybody can make it. The construction of the body of the hat is so incredibly simple and the sizing is very straightforward, a beautifully unisex hat. Without further ado, let’s go!

 

Materials:

Bernat Softee Chunky Yarn (5)
– I used Emerald
P hook
Tapestry needle
Scissors

Terms Used (US):

HDC – half double crochet
BLO – back loop only

Instructions:

Ch 23
Row 1: HDC into 3rd chain from the hook and across
Row 2: Ch 1, HDC through both loops of first stitch, HDC into BLO until last stitch, HDC both loops of last stitch
Row 3-desired length: Repeat Row 2. Aim for your work to be about 20 inches, it’ll stretch! You can also use your head as a reference for the circumference!

Once you’ve reached your desired length, chain 1 and fold your piece in half. and single crochet* your 2 halves (starting chain + last working row) together. Leave a long tail and bind off. Then, use your tail and needle to cinch your hat tube!

And of course, weave in your ends. Luckily, there are only 2!

 

You can either wear your hat slouchy, or you can double it over, creating a brim!

 

And that’s the Everybody Hat! I hope you’ve enjoyed this pattern, I’m hoping to get more summer-friendly posts up soon, so stay on the lookout for that! Also, please feel free to subscribe to the blog, you can find the link off to the right hand side of the page!

 

Until next time,
