After making the Winter Walk Headband, I decided some of us might want a stylish hat in this same “easy to make and wear” design…  Using self-stripping yarn make these projects work up like a breeze and look so fashionable!  This Winter Walk Beanie is a great grab and go hat for those cold mornings that are headed our way and also a great gift idea!!

Materials:

Yarn ~ 200 yards of worsted weight yarn ~ I suggest using Red Heart Boutique Unforgettable!!  Photo is in color way Echo…

Hook ~H & I

Stitches:

St ~ Stitch     Sl St ~ Slip Stitch     Sk ~ Skip     Ch ~ Chain     Sc ~ Single Crochet     Hdc ~ Half Double Crochet     Dc ~ Double Crochet     Fpdc ~ Front Post Double Crochet     Bpdc ~ Back Post Double Crochet

Dec Hdc ~ Decrease Half Double Crochet… Click here for tutorial

*Tips ~

You will not turn while working the ribbing, all other rounds you will turn.

By joining around the ch 3 sts instead of in the top of the st for the ribbing, you will keep the first st of each ribbing round looking like a fpdc.

Size:

19″ around the ribbing~ This will stretch up to approx. 23″, The crown of the hat is slightly larger due to using a larger hook.

Instructions:

Using the H hook… Ch 66, When starting leave a long tail(3-4″) to join the bottom edge round.

*You will work the first Round across, then join.  This technique makes it easier not to get your project twisted. You just join the bottom together with the tail.

Round 1:  Dc in the 4th ch from hook and each ch across. = 64 dc Join carefully not to twist project

Round 2 -6:  Ch 3(Counts as dc now and throughout), *bpdc around next st, fpdc around next st*, repeat * to * around. Join with sl st around the top of the beginning ch 3. = 32 bpdc, 32 fpdc

Change to the I hook

Round 7:  Ch 1, (sc,dc) in the first st, sk st, *(sc,dc) in the next st, sk st*, repeat * to * around. Join with sl st around the beginning sc. = 32 (sc,dc)

Round:  8-24:  Ch 1, turn, (sc,dc) in 1st st, sk st, *(sc,dc) in next st(this should land in sc sts from previous round), sk st*, repeat * to * around. Join with sl st to beginning sc. = 32 (sc,dc)

 

Round 25:  Ch 1, turn, (sc,dc) in 1st st, sk st, *(sc,dc) in next st, sk st*, repeat * to * 7 more times, sc in next st, {sk st, repeat *to* 9 times, sk st, sc in next st}, repeat {to} 1 more time, sk st, (sc,dc) in next st, sk st, (sc,dc) in next st, sk st. Join with sl st to beginning sc. = 61 sts

Round 26: Ch 1, turn, (sc,dc) in 1st st, sk st, (sc,dc) in next st,*sk 1 st, (sc,dc) in next st*, {sk 1 st, repeat *to* 9 times} repeat {to} 1 more time, sk 2 sts,^(sc,dc) in next st, sk st^, repeat ^to^ 7 more times. Join with sl st to beginning sc. = 58 sts    *tip- you are skipping 2 stitches 3 times, its easy to miss this between ** & {} sections

Round 27:  Ch 2(counts as hdc), turn, hdc in next 5 sts, dec hdc, * hdc in next 6 sts, dec hdc*, repeat *to* around. hdc in last st. Join with sl st to top of ch 2. = 50 sts

Round 28:  Ch 2, turn, hdc in next 2 sts, dec hdc, *hdc in next 3 sts, dec hdc*, repeat *to* around. Join with sl st to top of ch 2. = 40 sts

Round 29:  Ch 2, turn, hdc in next st, dec hdc, * hdc in next 2 sts, dec hdc*, repeat *to* around. Join with sl st to top of ch 2. =30 sts.

Finish off leaving a long tail.

To close the top of the hat, weave the long tail in and out of each of the 30 sts and draw closed. Secure yarn and weave in ends.

Using the long tail of beginning ch, sew the bottom edge of the headband together.

*To make this hat smaller or larger… it is in 2 st increments and increase or decrease rounds in between rounds 8 & 24*


Congratulations!!!  You now have a Winter Walk Beanie… You can experiment with different yarns to see what effects you get, but keep in mind that it may change the look and sizing of the project…

Happy Crocheting!!

How to change the sizing

To change the sizing of this project you can decrease or increase the beginning chain by increments of 3, it is approximately 1″ per 3dc shell which is an increment of 3. Your end stitch count will change so note the amount you increase or decrease and add or subtract that to the end of each row for the totals.  The ties can remain the same… but you can also make them longer or shorter as desired.

Congratulations… You now have and Amazing Grace Bathing Suit Wrap!!!

Amazing Grace Bathing Suit Wrap... Free Pattern


To wear ~

Bring skirt around your back, have even amounts of the waist(not including the ties) on each side. With the longer tail, wrap it around your front and insert the end of the tie from the inside of the skirt through to the outside. Pull tail through. Wrap the long tail around the waistband around your back and tie it to the short ended tail.  Adjust the skirt  to the desired position.

And of course my faithful helper always love to get in the picture…..
