Luscious One Skein Crochet Hat & Fingerless Mitts (and cowl too!) - Free #crochet patterns!

The Luscious One Skein Crochet Hat has two versions – as written it’s slightly slouchy, and very very cozy. This “dangerous slouch” really does use every inch of the skein, so only leave 6 inches or so for a tail at the beginning – and weave it in carefully when you finish up the brim! If you don’t want to risk it, go with the “safe beanie” option, and omit Rounds 9 and 10, continuing with Round 11 as written. This gives you a bit more room to play.

    I’m usually bit tight of a stitcher, but using a .M 9.0 hook and Loops and Threads Charisma Bulky Category 5, I have a length of 20.5″ at only 38 FDC. Advice pretty pretty please with cherries on top? I’ve been dying to make this hat ever since I discovered it!!!

      Doh! Of course my stitch count was off, I forgot that I started with 40 FDC instead of 48! pattern worked out nicely once I realized my error. Love the hat, I plan to add a bow or flower and list a project page on Ravelry .

    I was doing ok until I got to round 17 is very confusing. I had to guess and do the way I though it should be. I love this hat pattern.

    I love this hat! I made one for my daughter and I’d love to make one for a 2 year old and a 6 year old. Could you help with how many FDC to start? Thanks!

      Hi Faith! Thank you! This hat uses a stitch repeat of 8, so you’ll need to make a gauge swatch and figure out your stitch counts from there! :)

      Hi Jeanie! The Print Friendly button shouldn’t print out the comments, and you can click on anything else you don’t want to print to remove it too. :)

    Overthinking round 4…working over the ch 3; do you work into the middle st of the top ch3 or the middle of the bottom slipped stitches.

    Thanks 😊

    Is round 2 suppose to start with a chain 1 or should it be a chain 2? I just started this but round 2 looks funny when I do the chain 1
