Learn to Crochet this Women’s Peaked Hat
This pattern has a unique and fun easy stitch and will challenge you as well. It’s a great project for something stylish for yourself or even something for charity giving.
This hat can end up being too small if your tension is tight. I have a solution for you though.
Increasing the Size – NOT IN PATTERN
Some crocheters are experiencing a sizing issue. If your hat is appearing too small by the time you finish round 8. I am going to give you two additional rounds to follow to increase the diameter of the hat by 2″.
My advice will put 4 DC’s between each spoke instead of just 3. It will make a significant difference.
ROUND 9 – Ch 2, *1 dcfp around next dcfp. 1 DC into the next 3 dc, 1 dcfp, 2 dc into next dc and then 1 dc into the next 2. Repeat from * AROUND
Round 10 – Ch 2, *1 dcfp around next dcfp. 2 DC into the next dc, 1 dc into the next 2 dc, 1 dcfp, 1 dc into next 4 dc. Repeat from * AROUND
Once you get this done…resume the pattern as normal starting at Round 9 as per the pattern.
