Quick Colourful hats

hatcircleI do so love a small, stash-busting project every now and then, in between a biggie, don’t you?

These fab hats are a doddle to do, perfect for using up those leftover bits of yarn and for hooking away whilst in front of the TV/DVD/Radio!hatsThe pattern, by Jenna Wingate, is really straightforward and is one of the easiest crocht-rib techniques I’ve come across.  I did the ribbed bands with a US size F (3.75mm) hook, and upped to a UK 4mm for the main body of the hat.  Also, brilliant Jenna has even worked out a range of sizes, from Very Tiny Person to adult – what a star!redhatsThe braids were much easier than I expected and only took about 20 minutes to cut, attach, and finish.  I went with the length suggested and was really pleased with how they turned out.  I reckon they look pretty smart!bluehatsYou can find the pattern either on Ravelry (search for ‘Scrap Busters Hats’, or on allfreecrochet, HERE. Perfect for winter hooking and wearing!hatparadeOh, and if by any chance you live in Herefordshire and fancy purchasing a ready-made version, I have news for you on our Christmas craft fair coming soon!

Wishing you all a cosy, colourful weekend 🙂
