As you all know I blog about the crochet patterns which I have tried it by myself.This week I tried out a new cap pattern after browsing for a long time on the web which is a ribbed cap. Here in Qatar, the weather has become quite cool and my son has been pleading me for a cap. In the early hours of the morning while waiting for the bus its cool and to keep him warm I made him this cap. I didnt have a chunky yarn that too that particular color. I needed that color itself as it is his school uniform color. So made it with 2 yarns and YEAH I got a chunky yarn to make for this project.
I found the pattern on youtube as I was watching some other videos. I modified the pattern little as per my son size, who is 6 yrs old but the outcome of the project was from 6 to 15yrs teenager and since the yarn material I used is also different and also the size of the hook
I used two 3ply yarns about 80 to 100 gms and 6.5 mm US hook
You can find the link for the Crochet Snowboarder Chunky Hat pattern.
I started the foundation chain with 49 chain stitches and at the end of each row I made 3sc [single crochet] 4 ss [slip stitch]. This part of the pattern is best understood only when you are making the cap or beanie. This is a ribbed beanie with chunky yarn with hdc, sc, bl and ss stitches used.
In the original pattern pom pom is also attached on center of the cap but I have not attached it.
Do try this hat and comment whether you got the desired size
