As I promised, I am going to publish the tutorial of October’s “The Sunday Bonnet” that got more comments. Which has been the lucky winner??? Drums please…brrrrbrrrbrrr… With 14 comments the winner is:
Thank you everybody for participate!
Well let’s go to the tutorial:
Have to say this hat is pretty easy to do, even for no initiated ones.
- T-shirt fabric, made yarn as on my tutorial: from fabric to yarn – make your own yarn (also check this trick on how to convert t-shirt fabric into yarn).
- A crochet
- A marker (optional, it can be a paperclip)
Work the (a) part as follows:
Step 1) Start with a magic ring, and single stitch 6. (for those who don’t know how to make a magic ring, please check the tutorial on How to make a Magic Circle). Put the marker at the beginning of the row.
Step 2) Work as follows, the numbers indicate how many stitches you should work on every stitch from the previous row.
Third row: 2,1,2,1…2,1 –> total 18 stitches.
Fourth row: 2,1,1,2…,2,1,1 –> total 24 stitches.
Fifth row: 2,1,1,1,2…,2,1,1,1 –> total 30 stitches.
Step 3) Follow increasing as indicated. Make as many rows as to cover the crown of the head (as a jewish Kippah). I cannot tell you how many rows it should be, as it depends on the head size and on the wideness of the yarn you made.
Work the part (b) as follows:
Step 1) Work as many rows as to cover the head till the forehead (this time without increasing the stitches).
Step 2) Cut the yarn at 5 cm. Draw yarn through last loop. Pull the yarn tightly. Weave loose yarn through back of work with a tapestry needle.
Work the part (c) as follows:
Step 1) Measure the forehead.
Step 2) Take the hat and decide where the forehead will go, mark it with needles. Start working with single stitch from one of the needles till the other needle, leaving the forehead space without working. Work a second row.
Step 3) Cut the yarn at 5 cm. Draw yarn through last loop. Pull the yarn tightly. Weave loose yarn through back of work with a tapestry needle.
That is! You have a fabulous t-shirt fabric hat done!! Hope you like it!

Have a nice week.
