Free Pattern:

This pattern works in a continuous circle. We work with back and front posts to achieve this pattern. The basket weave stitch is in groups of 6. There is 3 rows between the basket transition. We need to ensure you are matching the posts properly and we have to ensure when we are grabbing a post by the opposite side that it’s on purpose to match the pattern properly. Step 3 is critical for establishing this pattern properly.

  1. Ch 3, HDC 6 times into the BEG CH to form circle. SL ST to the top of the BEG CH.
  2. CH 2, 2 HDC into each stitch. SL ST to the top of the BEG CH
  3. CH 2, *First stitch is FPDC, next stitch gets 2 FPDC around the same post. Next stitch gets BPDC, next stitch gets 2 BPDC. Repeat from *all the way around. SL ST at the top of the BEG CH.
  4. CH 2, *First two stitches gets FPDC, next stitch gets 2 FPDC around the same post. Next two stitches gets BPDC, next stitch gets 2 BPDC. Repeat from * all the way around. SL ST at the top of the BEG CH.
  5. CH 2, *First three stitches gets FPDC, next stitch gets 2 FPDC around the same post. Next three stitches get BPDC, next stitch gets 2 BPDC. Repeat from * all the way around. SL ST at the top of the BEG CH.
  6. CH 2, *First four stitches get FPDC, next stitch gets 2 FPDC around the same post. Next four stitches get BPDC, next stitch 2 BPDC. Repeat from * all the way around. ST ST at the top of the BEG CH.
  7. CH 2, follow same posts that are underneath. Please ensure you match the FPDC and BPDC to keep the ribbed effect going. SL ST at the top of the BEG CH.
  8. Repeat Step 7 – 14 times.
  9. CH 2 and HDC all the way around. SL ST to the top of the BEG CH.
  10. Repeat step 19 – 4 times.
  11. Fasten off and weave in the ends.
Enjoy

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.

    It appears I am doing something wrong after step 7 where it requires step 7 be repeated 14 times. I am able to keep the pattern going; however, my hat is not getting any wider, just longer. Would you please advise what I am doing wrong?

    Many thanks – Claire

      that would be correct after round 6 it stops increasing and you start creating the body of the hat. You were doing it right.

  2. Carolyn says:

    Thanks, Dinnelle!! I’ll give it a try!

    Can’t print the pattern. No place to do it listed.

      Sorry, this pattern was from 2012. In light of your comment, I just created a downloadable pdf. It is now linked to the pattern. Thanks for the chance to improve.

    That is adorable! How could I adjust this to an adult size?

    1. Mikey says:

      I’m sorry, I haven’t figured out the mathematics or test trials to know the answer for this at this moment.

    2. Dinnelle says:

      I just finished an adult version of this. I continued increasing by 6 stitches each round until I got to 66 stirches around. 11 fpdc, then 11 bpdc around. Then follow the pattern until you reach the desired length. I do dishes with 4 rounds of sc. I came out amazing!
