Try the Crystal Ice Hats
Introducing the Crystal Ice Hats by Schachemayr Yarns. This clever design is a lot simpler than it looks. I love how it looks more complicated than it really is.
This pattern can be adapted to change sizes by chaining the starting chain that wraps around your forehead. Keep the chain in sets of 5 and you will end up with a perfectly fitting hat. The final three rounds of the hat are the decreasing rounds which can be done in virtually any size as the top of the hat is bunched up and sewn together.
The zigzag effect is just an optical illusion formed by front post treble crochets that come down over two rows and connected to the next row with the same colour. It makes it appear that you have had to crochet on a zigzag formation but that’s where the fun is.
With the brim using a Camel Stitch, you will notice that the brim will have nearly a double thickness to it. This is perfect for those, like me, who live in cold regions of the world. The free pattern has been removed by the publisher as they have gone out of business.
