Crocheting A Hat 

You Will Need
  • A Crochet Hook
  • Two balls of Yarn
  • A pair of Scissors
  • A Yarn Needle
  • Begin the process of crocheting your hat by making a slip stitch and supplementing it with eight chain stitches. Remember, it is always easier to work with an even number of stitches as opposed to working with an odd number of stitches.
  • Keep the process going by connecting the two ends of the slip stitch and the chain stitch. You can do this by sending in the needle through the first stitch and then making two single crochet stitches in each of the first stitch. On paper it may seem difficult, but in reality it hardly is. By pulling this off successfully, you will arrive at sixteen stitches that stretch out of the outer ring of that single slip stitch.
  • In this step, you will have to work on the single crochet stitches for the first three stitches of the second row. Then, work on single crochet stitches on the fourth stitch of the second row. You will have to repeat this step until you arrive at the small tail that makes for the beginning of the row. With this, if you have done everything right, you should notice that your hat is beginning to look spiral.
  • Now that you are done with the second row, you can begin on the third row. For this you will have to use a single crochet that goes all the way around the hat and enforces the second row.
  • With the successful implementation of the previous step, you can work on the fourth row with two single crochet stitches. The stitches should go all the way around the hat.
  • For the fifth row, you will have to repeat the actions taken in the third step. With the implementation of this step you should be done with crocheting your hat. It is these steps that give the hat a much sought after depth.
  • If you are looking to make a much bigger hat, you can do so by repeating all of the above mentioned steps in quick succession and as many times as you want to. You can stop repeating steps once you know for sure that you are happy with the size of your hat!
