She found this hat in my shop, and asked me if I could make one like it, but smaller (for a newborn) and with more stripes.
Here's what I came up with:
I forgot to set my camera with the "close-up" setting, so it's a little blurry. Still, this gives the the general idea.
To make it, I followed my basic beanie pattern , with the following adjustments.
- I used a F size crochet hook
- I had 6 sc in my center
- I went until there were 7 sc in between each set of doubles, then I started just going around evenly on each row.
- Once I got to where I wasn't doing any more doubles, I went a row or two with the green, then added two rows of tan. Then 4 more rows of green, then two more rows of tan. Then 9 rows of green, the another row of green, but just in the front loop (making the "fold up" row). Then I turned and crocheted the other way, making 3 rows of green and ending with two rows of tan
