{Material}

- 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)

{Procedure:}

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.

Second row: 2,2,..2,2 –> total 12 stitches.
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!

(if you have any doubt, please do not hesitate to contact me!)

Have a nice week.

    wow this is a great idea!! i haven’t thought of using t-shirts for yarn like this. i tried using plastic bags to make bags but that was a royal pain. i think the t-shirt would be much easier!

    Yes, t-shirt is great, since it does not unravels and is really sweet to touch. Unlike other kind of fabrics, which are loosing thousand of little threads for some days, t-shirt is not.

    Thanks for sharing that plastic bags are a royal pain! I was thinking on trying, but will certainly not try them now!

  3. My friend tried to teach me how to knit baby hats but I never did get the hang of it. I love how this hat has the little ear flaps. Thanks for you continued support of What’s In The Gunny Sack!
