I’ve decided that since free patterns got me started, I want to share the patterns that I’ve come up with. I figured the best place to start was with my Halloween themed hats.
You have permission to sell your finished products, but please do not sell the pattern. Also please give credit to this site if you are selling online. If you do plan on using this pattern and others found on this site for profit, please consider donating to my cause. Thanks for your cooperation!
It’s actually really simple.
It’s a basic beanie in half-double crochet (hdc) and then I stitched a spider web on there.
Since I use this basic pattern in most of my hats to some extent I’m going to go ahead and post it here.
I hook (5.5mm)
Yarn (black and white)
with black, make a magic circle
Rnd 1: ch 2, 8 hdc into circle, join
Rnd 2: ch 2, 2 hdc in each st around, join (16 hdc)
Rnd 3: ch 2, *2 hdc in next st, hdc in next st, rep from * around, join (24 hdc)
Rnd 4: ch 2, *2 hdc in next st, hdc in next 2 st, rep from * around, join (32 hdc)
Rnd 5: ch 2, *2 hdc in next st, hdc in next 3 st, rep from * around, join (40 hdc)
Rnd 6: ch 2, *2 hdc in next st, hdc in next 4 st, rep from * around, join (48 hdc)
Rnd 7-14: ch 2, hdc in each st around, join (48 hdc)
Rnd 15: ch 1, sc in each st around, join and tie off (48 sc)
Sew in loose ends
And that is the body of the hat! For the different sizes I’ve listed the total number of stitches you will need for the last increasing round.
0-3 mo. = 44 stitches
3-6 mo. = 48 st
6-12 mo. = 52 st
Toddler = 56 st
Child/Preteen = 60-64 st (depends on head circumference)
Adult = 64 st
Now for the web.
Using my yarn needle and white yarn…
I started with 4 straight lines, crossing each other in the middle.
Then I started with the smallest circle…
Then the middle circle…
And then finally the last and largest circle, and voila! You have a spider web.
