Day 54: Top Hat for Her

I’ve been listening to Melanie Martinez’s track Carousel for months. I can’t help it. I knew i had to make a femme style top hat with a great big BOW to match in the styles of Miss Martinez.

The bow is a FREE pattern designed by Stitch11 and can be found HERE.

I made the hat more of a costume like size, so I use bobby pins to wear it. I included instructions for bigger size.

Braid: I wrapped four strands of three colors of yarn four times around the base of the top hat. Then braided them. It was long enough to wrap around the hat twice.

Day 52. Funky Fez Hat

My husband is a Huge history buff. We’ve been filling the house with historical related podcasts. We just finished the rule and fall of the Roman Empire and moved onto the Ottoman Empire. They discussed fez hats and the ban on them due to tensions with Austrian trade.
What caught my attention was i was actually first introduced to the fez via vintage American smoking jacket characters in the movies. Haha. Well I’m On my ridge and vintage kick, so I came up with this fez design while we listened to the Ottoman Empire tapes.

Day 51: Robertson Ridge Technique

Lately I’ve been designing a line of hats that all use the same technique. I call this technique the Robertsons Ridge Technique. So far I’ve designed three hats using this technique.

The first was this Pretty Pillbox Hat.

IMG_2755

Followed by the Boo-Yah Bucket hat.

IMG_2979

Just yesterday I released this Amish Inspired Hat Pattern.

.

IMG_3137-0

And tomorrow there will be another one using this technique.

This technique uses a sequence of three rows to get the desired ridge look. It starts by using desired stitch in the BLO of an entire row. Followed by two rows of desired stitch in the FLO of each row.

BLO stands for back loop only.
FLO stands for front loop only.

I have included a link to a video tutorial on how to crochet in the BLO and FLO. The video can be found HERE.

The video link is courtesy of Yarn Obsession.

You can also find these FREE patterns as a bundle on my RAVELRY.

Keep your eyes peeled for more hats using this technique coming soon. I’m currently working on at least four more designs 🙂

Day 50: Amish Inspired Hat

I’m obsessed with the show Amish Mafia. I grew up in Pennsylvania. In a city. Just a short distance from Lancaster where the show takes place. I grew up around Amish culture. A few of my classmates were children of shunned Amish. And our local public high school football games would draw Amish teens in by the dozens. Such nice people. But very secretive. Wink wink. I noticed how popular black Amish style hats were becoming these days. I had to design a crocheted one(yes I already have an authentic one :/ I betrayed PA and had one sent from Indiana).

IMG_3101If only I could get some Hand Pies and Sweet bread shipped that would be great!!!!
Anyway here is my Amish inspired hat pattern.

Day 47. Boo-Yah Bucket Hat

The 90’s called, and told me I needed to design this hat. XD

IMG_2978

The 90’s gave us lots of things, like bucket hats and the saying “Boo-Yah”. I couldn’t resist. I was born in 88 so I know the 90’s pretty well. I had a denim bucket hat, and reversible Calvin Klein bucket hat, and yes, a green fuzzy bucket hat with the plastic inflatable backpack to match. Cringe.

I really liked designing this hat because buckets are definitely making s comeback!
This hat is also really great for beginners who want to use/learn the very basic stitches(HDC,sc,tc) all in one hat!

This hat features the Robertsons Ridge Technique

Boo-Yah Bucket Hat:
6mm hook- J
Red heart with love solids
Tapestry needle
Stitch marker if desired

TERMS USED:
BLO- back loop only
FLO- front loop only
For video tutorial on how to crochet in FLO and BLO click HERE.
Sc- single crochet
Tc- triple crochet
Slst- slip stitch
HDC- half double crochet
