Learn to crochet this amazing Big Stitch Crochet Hat featuring Patons Roving and Patons Colorwul by Yarnspirations.

I love this wonderful wool hat. I’m in the country here at home and this is exactly the type of projects I see in the wintertime. It has a homemade look and feel and yet trendy and fashionable. It’s the mix of both warmth and style at the same time.

This hat is relatively easy to crochet. It’s using the Slip Stitch Technique of the brim which takes longer but looks so more refined and finished. It has a beautiful elastic feel to the project.

There is only two balls required. One is Patons Roving and the other is Patons Colorwul. The colours interchange with each other without having to fasten off or on each time. You just carry the yarn through the project. It’s out of sight and saves you a lot of headaches.

Video Tutorial

Mikey, aka Michael Sellick, of The Crochet Crowd, started this online journey back in 2008. A mere hobby in trying to reach out to others as he was mentally struggling with his own issues. His goal was simple, find others in the yarn communities, like him, that have a common interest.

The journey and main baby of the whole idea started with a YouTube Channel and then in 2011, an official website was developed. Michael is not only the face of The Crochet Crowd but also the working engine behind the crowd in self-taught programming, social media and so much more.

Enjoy the stitching journey. Life is short, enjoy this wonderful hobby and all of the learning opportunities that come with it.
