Micro Prem Ribbed Hats - Free Patterns
Hope everyone is doing ok out there in the big wide world. I have another pattern for you guys today. Its a ribbed hat for 16/17 weeks gestation. Designed with boys in mine but could be used for either gender just fine. I find there are a lot less creative ideas for the boys so Im trying hard to think of some that are either boyish or gender neutral. This hat only has 9 rows, and is a great way to introduce yourself to fphdc!
For this hat you will need
either 4 or 5 ply yarn (fingering or sports weight)
needle for sewing in ends
fphdc (front post half double crochet)
1: Ch2, hdc 8 times into the first chain, sl st to join.
2: Ch2, hdc in the same stitch, 2hdc in each remaining stitch around, join.
3: Ch2, hdc in the same stitch, *fphdc around the next stitch, 2hdc in the next stitch* repeat around, join.
4-8: Ch2, hdc, *fphdc, hdc, hdc* repeat around, join (fphdc will be done around the fphdc from the previous round, this creates the ribs)
9: Ch1, sc around, join. Finish off and weave in all ends.
NOTE: DK weight yarn (8ply) will yeild a hat to fit 18/20 weeks, however you will need to do 2 extra rows of fphdc, hdc, hdc to add length.
Pattern 2/52 for 2013
