2 – 4 Years Old Family Ridge Hat
This quick to make hat is called the Family Ridge Hat. The pattern picture is showing the adult version but this tutorial and instructions are provided for 2 – 4 years of age.
The pattern starts off in the brim and works it’s way to the top of the hat. The pattern consists of two rows that are constant which is Back Loop Half Double Crochet and the other round is single crochet. Nearly all of the decreasing rounds are in the single crochet round which makes it very easy and hides the decrease nicely.
In the tutorial, I show you a tip on how not to twist your starting chain. For those who need help with the instructions, my tutorial will guide you all the way through. Being this is the 2 – 4 year size, this pattern hooks up quickly.
Stitch it Forward
Yarnspirations has released their latest Lookbook called Caron, Stitched with Love. The book of free patterns for both knitters and crocheters have one central theme, charity. It focuses on simple projects and some that require a bit of knowledge of crochet. Personally, I love how the Lookbook allows new crocheters to learn new skills but also for the ones who have some skills to go a step further. Not only is this book charity oriented, but it also a great starting point for crocheters and knitters to do something more than practice with stitches. It will allow them to learn, grow and contribute to their own community with the projects they create.
The project above is from this Lookbook. In this article is one specific pattern and I have a tutorial that matches it for those who need an extra helping hand with the instructions and skills needed to complete the project.
