Another Crochet Project: Mint Blue Elegant Hat


I love how bright this cute crocheted Elegant Hat is!  I'm glad that I finally rescued it from the land of Works In Progress where it's been for a long time.

The yarn is one of my favorites.  It's Simply Soft in Blue Mint.  I had picked it up on sale at Michael's ages ago.  (I almost always pick up Simply Soft when it's a good deal!)  The blue is just so cheerful and happy!


The free pattern (here it is on Ravelry) is easy to follow, and doesn't require many fancy skills.  It is also easily adaptable, which is always good.  While my three year old is the one modeling this hat, it will stretch quite a bit and it is a little large on her, so it's really a lady's hat.  (Also, she has *ahem* a slightly larger than average head.)


My pattern changes include: substituting a flower for the bow, not doing the reverse single crochet in the band, and slip stitching around the bottom of the brim.  I also used a size "I" hook and added a few rows to the base.

  7. Your little lady is so adorable in her hat. I love the flower you added as an accessory. It adds a lot of character to the hat.

  8. Your little girl enjoys modeling this lovely hat, obviously. It's so cute and it must be comfy and soft. It's like a fashion statement winter hat; a rare commodity. Thanks for sharing at Lines Across My Face.

    1. Well, it was one of those "start crocheting and see what happens" flowers -- so there isn't really a pattern. I do have a rose pattern that I like, which can be found here: http://philwife.blogspot.com/2012/03/crocheted-rose-broach.html
