Herring Bone Beanie




I designed this hat for my younger sister, it varies between a tight fit and a slight slouch depending on the size of your head. It could also be suitable for men. 

A printable version is available for download on my ravelry account.

  • ·         Less than 170g aran or worsted weight yarn (I used Redheart Yarn With Love in Pewter)
  • ·         5.00 mm (H hook); I used Clover Amour H hook
  • ·         Scissors and needle for finishing 


STITCHES AND ABBREVIATIONS
  • ·         Single Crochet, Back Loops only (SC BL): Pull one loop through half of the stitch furthest from you, yarn over and pull through two loops.
  • ·         Herring Bone Double Crochet (HB): yarn over and pull up a loop (3 on hook), pull first loop through second loop (2 on hook), yarn over and pull through first loop (2 on hook), yarn over and pull through both loops to finish








  • ·         Herring Bone two Together(HB2TOG) This is the decrease stitch: Yarn over, pull up a loop,, (3 on hook) pull up a loop in next stitch (4 on hook), pull first loop through second loop, (3 one hook), yarn over, pull through 2 loops (2 loops on hook) yarn over pull through 2 loops to finish.








  • ·         Single Crochet (SC)
  • ·         Slip stitch (SL)
  • ·         Chain (CH)

GAUGE
  • ·         12 SC for the ribbed brim should measure approximately 3 inches
  • ·         4 rows measure approximately 1 inch.

OTHER NOTES AND TIPS
  • ·         Ch 2 in each round does not count as a stitch
  • ·         Sl to the top of the first stitch, not the ch in each round to join
  • ·         There are simple increases and decreases using the stitch described above

BRIM
1.      Ch 13, SC in 2nd ch form hook, continue working SC until end of chain (12)
2.      Ch 1, turn, SC BL in each SC to end of row (12)
Repeat 2 for an additional 66 rows (68 Rows total)
Join back to first row with Sl in each stitch to form ring, do not tie off, begin hat stage
