Baby hat

Untitled.pngWe were doing granny squares in the Wool Haven class today. I had explained how starting with a magic circle not only was great for ensuring all squares look even but was essential when making hats.

So many hats start the same way and so I crocheted this up so I have an example to show them next week.

This is made with Debbie Bliss Rialto – an extra fine merino super wash – which is really nice to crochet with.

This has been made to fit 3 – 6 months,

  • 3.5 mm hook
  • 50g 4 ply yarn

Stitches

  • sl st – slip stitch
  • ch – chain
  • dc – double crochet
  • tc – treble crochet
