Granny Hat Free Crochet Pattern


In English notation, so remember if you're American if the pattern says treble crochet, do a double crochet, etc.

Notes: I changed colours and finished off every round. If you don't do that - you're working in one colour, etc. then you'll have to add a few slip stitches to the start of each round to get you to the chain space.

To do the first treble in the new colour, make the slip knot on your hook, hold in place with your index finger, yoh, push through stitch, yoh, pull through 2 loops, yoh, pull through 2. No chaining required.

Bobble: is basically a tr2tog but into 1 stitch instead of 2, so, yo, insert through st, yo, pull through st, yo, pull through 2 loops on hook, yo, insert back through same st, yo, pull through, yo, pull through 2 loops on hook, yo, pull through remaining three loops on hook.

Gauge: foundation round & round 1 = 6cm / 2.5 inches

Note: every time you chain 3, the first chain will trap the chain from Colour A.

Leave a long end to sew it to hat with.
