Finished For Friday

I’ve been meaning to get in on the Finished for Friday stuff going on over at Lit and Laundry, but I just haven’t been able to get my act together to actually finish things 😉

And you’ve seen these modeled by my kids already, but they count!! I finished them!

I actually made Maggie’s a wee bit too short, but added a crochet boarder (which means it doesn’t roll now), but I think it makes it a little more girly anyway…

 

Knitted hats

 

 

Close-up

 

I found the roll-brim pattern online, but had to improvise just a little bit since it was for an adult (or larger child..?) Here’s my version:

Use circular needles

Cast on 75 and join (be sure not to twist the work!)
Add a stitch marker because you’ll be working in the round
knit in the round for about 6 inches (I think I knitted 45 rounds??)

Decrease as follows:
Round 1: *k13, k 2 together, rep from *
Round 2: k
Round 3: *k12 , k 2 together, rep from *
Round 4: k
Round 5: *k11, k 2 together, rep from *
Round 6: k
Round 7: *k10 , k 2 together, rep from *
Round 8: k
Round 9: *k9, k 2 together, rep from *
Round 10: k

Round 11 on: Decrease every round until 5 stitches remain.
Cut yarn and draw through last stitches….fasten off.
Weave all your cut ends into your hat.

  1. Thanks for the pattern! I really like making hats and would love to make my 3 some. Youts look great and I love the creative crocheting to make it a little longer!
