Something which I found is quite easy but immensely adaptable is the tea bag hat, so I offer these patterns during weeks 2 & 3 of the classes at The Wool Haven.

All are made with half treble crochets worked into the back loop only.

4mm hook

DK wool amount depends on size – no more than 100g

Adult tea-bag hat with turn up

This is the simplest of the 3 versions, and can be easily adjusted to fit any size head. It is very stretchy as it only has a turn up rather than a band.

Can also be adapted into a Pussycat Hat by sewing across each corner to make ears.

Foundation chain – 40 chain

Row 1: skip 1st chain, then half treble crochet (htc) in the back loop ONLY of the “v” to end of row

Row 2 – 50: Chain 1, then htc into the back loop only to end of row.

Row 51: Join to foundation using dc, then continue along top edge to make a square bag.

Fasten off & weave in ends.

Turn up edge to form band.
