Instructions for Bow

  • Fold swatch in half.
  • Take one side and fold that in half backwards.
  • Use tapestry needle to sew the fold down*.
  • Take the other side and fold it in half backwards.
  • Use tapestry needle to sew the fold down*.
  • At this point the bow should look like this. (The bow should look like bow-tie macaroni)

  • Wrap the bow with yarn and it will look like this.


*When folding the sides backwards you are actually folding them to the front of the bow and sewing them to the front as well*

I'm sorry for the hard explanation of the bow. If there are problems with understanding this, then I will make another tutorial for this bow.

ENJOY!

I ask that if you use my pattern that you do not resell the pattern as your own. You may sell any hats that you create from this pattern. If you recreate this hat and post it on your own blog/shop please put a link to give credit to me, the author. Thank you!

  1. I found your pattern on Ravelry and made it yesterday. Took me about 3 hours total (including some frogging). I altered it slightly to work for me, but it came out adorable. Thanks for the great instructions!

    1. In order to create a hat for a 1 year old, you will need to find what the size that is required for a 1 year old's head.

      You can use the same measurements from this website:
      How to properly size crochet hats. Chart for correct sizing, including Magic Circle Sizes

      When I create a new hat, I use the measurements and do the math to find how many stitches are needed to increase to the appropriate circumference.

      I used this website to find out that information:
      HOW TO DESIGN A HAT (PART 2: THE MATH)

      Once you create the top of the hat (the circle) continue with the pattern, you will want to keep increasing. This is what makes it bigger at the top like a beret. You will end up changing the amount of stitches you do each row when doing the length of the hat. You will also need to increase how many rows you do. I would add to rows 13 - 21 and 27 - 29 evenly.

      For example, if you need to add an inch in length and by your gauge notice you need to add four more rows. I would add two more rows to 13 - 21 and two rows to 27 - 29.

      If you find that you need to decrease by one more row. Then I would add one more row to 13 - 21, do row 25 twice, do row 26 twice, and add a row to 27 - 29. This way it will continue to be uniform with one more decrease added.

    1. When creating a hat for child of a specific age, you will want to change the amount of rows and stitches you do for the hat. The size of the needle will make the hat larger, but not large enough to fit a four year old.

      If you take a look at my comment above, I have linked to two great websites that explain creating specific hat sizings.

      To get the size you will need for the circumference and length for a 4 year old, you can get that information from here:

      How to properly size crochet hats. Chart for correct sizing, including Magic Circle Sizes

      To do the math for how many rows, increase of stitches, and rows for the length, this blog has explained it perfectly.

  7. I cannot figure out the pattern after row 3. It seems as if skipping to every 4th stitch reduces the stitches and pattern. I am new to crocheting - what am I missing?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. For row 3, you will do a single crochet in the first 4 stitches. Then you will want to do 2 single crochets in the 5th stitch and repeat.

      Rows 1 through 12 are to increase by 6 stitches in each row. This is creating the top circumference of the hat.

      Welcome to the crochet world! If you have any other questions, please let me know :)

    1. Sorry for the later response, it appears I never received a notification for your comment.

      Not this should not pinch their head. Before creating the hate, you may want to measure the babies head to ensure that it won't be too tight and adjust the pattern accordingly.
