Update: 12/07/2015 – There was a typo on Round 2 and 5 which have now been corrected.
If you loved how easy the Lookin’ Lovely Cowl was to crochet….you’ll love the matching beanie. I considered how a few of you had a hard time with the brim of Project #2 in the Christmas Present Crochet-Along and decided to do this one a little different. Honestly though, you could easily adapt to use whichever brim you liked the best with simply ensuring the correct beginning stitch count! Now…get to crocheting using all those wonderful color schemes that Lion Brand Landscape yarn has to offer. It will really allow your personality to shine through with your color choice!

Do not fasten off. Measure out 8-10“of yarn to weave through every other sc.
Take your tapestry needle and weave under the loops of every other sc around, pull the yarn tightly. (NOTE: With this particular yarn, handle gently when you pull “tight” to close the top of the hat). This will close up the hat. Sew the top of the hat with a few stitches for security. Fasten off
Fasten off and weave in the ends.
Have a great day!

The bottom of my brim flips up, I must have done something incorrectly on the first few rounds. Do you have any suggestions on how to fix that? Thanks 🙂
Kathy Lashley says
You could try doing fpsc/bpsc stitches or bphdc/fphdc stitches instead to get the stitches tighter. Or drop a hook size perhaps, just being sure to pay attention to your gauge though because you don’t want the hat to get too small. If you do drop a hook size, you may want to increase the initial chain stitch count.
Linda B says
What do you think caused it in the first place? I don’t want to rip it all out, because I’m nearly finished. I was hoping for a solution that I can just add to the bottom. I really like this hat, by the way 🙂
