Easy Lacy Crochet Hat-Fold Over Brim Beanie

This hat is a pattern I really loved crocheting!

I have created this simple tutorial to show you an easy way to crochet a bottom up pattern with a ribbed stretchy brim and a beautiful lacy pattern.

Special sts

Crossed double crochet st over 3 sts =when the pattern asks or a crossed double crochet stitch you will skip next st at that point of the row, work 1 double crochet in each of next 2 sts, then work 1 double crochet in skipped st, working over the dcs you have just made and inserting your hook from behind towards the front of the skipped st.

Hdc in BLO: To make a hdc in the back loop only, you have to insert your hook in the middle of the “v” and grab only the part of the “v” that is further from you, that is the back loop. Next, make the hdc stitch as usually.

sc2tog:insert hook in indicated st and pull up a loop,, insert hook in next st and pull up a loop, 3 loops on hook, yo and pull through all 3 loops on look, you have decreased 1 st

BOTTOM UP PATTERN

We start crocheting a stretchy ribbed brim working hdc in back loops


CROCHET PATTERN

           BRIM

Chain 19, (19, 25, 25)

Note: ch1 in the beginning of rows does not count as a stitch

Row 1: insert your hook in 2nd ch from hook and work a hdc, hdc in every ch across till the end, 18(18, 24, 24) hdc, turn

Row 2: Ch1(does not count as a stitch), hdc in every st of prev row

inserting your hook in back loops only of the hdc of prev row, 18(18, 24, 24) hdc, turn

Repeat row 2 for 62, (68, 71, 71) more rows or untill your piece has the desired length to be a brim (when 2 edges are sewn together ) that will fit properly at your head.                                  

Note: you should be careful at the beginning and at the end of each row. Insert your hook in the very first stitch and not in the ch1 you have just made…and at the end of the row, make sure you will be working your last hdc in the last hdc of prev row.

Knowing where to put the first and the last stitch, will help you maintain the same number of stitches and keep your edges straight!


                                                   Sewing

Sew the two sides of the brim, together with a tapestry needle or use your crochet hook to join with slip stitches.

Now we are going to crochet down the side of our brim, turn your work so the side is facing up, we will sc in each side edge space.

We are going to be working in rounds , joining with a sl st every round and always working in same direction, facing the right side of our hat.


 

MAIN HAT PATTERN

Note: the number of single crochet sts in this foundation row should be a multiple of 3 (we need this number for the crossed double crochet pattern)

 Round 1:ch1 (does not count as a stitch), sc in this very first st, sc in every side edge space, so we work 63 (69, 72, 72) sc, join with a sl st in fist sc of the row, continue working a new round

Round 2:ch1(does not count as a stitch), dc in next st, dc in next st, dc in skipped very first st where we joined(, passing in front of the dcs you have just made  and inserting your hook from behind towards the front of the loop of skipped st.*,  a crossed double crochet st over 3 stitches is made),  * sk next st, dc in each of next 2 sts, dc in skipped st, passing in front of the dcs you have just made  and inserting your hook from behind towards the front of the loop of skipped st.*, repeat from * to * until the end of row, 21 (23, 24,24) crossed double crochet sts, 63, (69, 72,72( sts in total

Rnd 3: ch1 (does not count as a stitch), sc in this very first st, where we joined, sc in every st to the end of the round,  63 (69, 72, 72) sc, join with a sl st in fist sc of the row, continue working in same direction always facing right side of the hat.

Round 4:ch1(does not count as a stitch), dc in next st, dc in next st, dc in skipped very first st where we joined(, passing in front of the dcs you have just made  and inserting your hook from behind towards the front of the loop of skipped st.*,  a crossed double crochet st over 3 stitches is made),  * sk next st, dc in each of next 2 sts, dc in skipped st, passing in front of the dcs you have just made  and inserting your hook from behind towards the front of the loop of skipped st.*, repeat from * to * until the end of row, 21 (23, 24,24) crossed double crochet sts, 63, (69, 72,72( sts in total


Repeat rounds 3 and 4 until you reach round 14 for all sizes

 

 DECREASE SINGLE CROCHET ROUNDS

For all sizes

Dec round 1: ch1., * sc2tog, sc in each of next 5 sts* repeat from * to * to the last 2 sts, sc2tog, join with a sl st in first st, continue working in the round

Dec round 2: ch1., * sc2tog, sc in each of next 4 sts* repeat from * to * to the last 2 sts, sc2tog, join with a sl st in first st, continue working in the round

Dec round 3: ch1., * sc2tog, sc in each of next 3 sts* repeat from * to * to the last 2 sts, sc2tog, join with a sl st in first st, continue working in the round

Dec round 4: ch1., * sc2tog, sc in each of next 2 sts* repeat from * to  * to the last 2 sts, sc2tog, join with a sl st in first st, , cut yarn leaving a long tail to sew the hat crown . 26(29, 31, 31) remaining sts after decreases

 

Take the yarn tail and thread it through a tapestry needle and make a knot before beginning so that you can pull the yarn without pulling the yarn through. Begin weaving the yarn in and out through the last round of stitches.

Insert the tapestry needle through the first stitch to the left under the top two loops of the stitch and continue weaving the yarn in and out of the stitches all around the top.

Now to close the top pull gently the yarn tail. To secure, run a few more stitches back and forth across the top, lastly weave in the yarn tail on the inside of the hat and cut the yarn tail.


Turn hat right side  and fold the brim in two , you may sew in place or not , I did it.
