Craft lesson: Flapper Hat tutorial

Crochet, Hat  |  August 25th 2011  |  0 Comment

This pattern uses back post double crochet (bpdc) there are several good tutorials online of how to complete this stitch, as well as Youtube videos that will walk you through it. It is expected that you know this stitch and are comfortable with it before beginning the pattern.

Items Needed:
115 to 130 yards of WW yarn
G hook (or hook needed to obtain gauge)

Note:This hat was made using a lighter WW yarn with a lot of drape. If you use a stiffer more bulky yarn the bpdc ridges will be much more pronounced than in the picture. Some like this effect, others do not. If you wish to leave out the ridges you can substitute dc for the bpdc throughout the pattern.

Gauge:7.5 dc stitches should be 2″ across. 2 rows of dc should be 1″ high

Finished Size:Unstretched circumference is 22″ but the hat can easily stretch to larger sizes. It’s supposed to be more of a loose fit since the style is more dressy than beanie-style hats, so don’t worry if it’s a bit larger than your head.
