I used a 4.00mm hook
Double knit (worsted)

You will need a darning needle to finish off and secure wig to hat.


To make the Hat:
Using your Black Yarn
Chain 4 slip into 1st chain to create a ring. (keep loose and do not tighten yet)
Rnd 1Chain 2, Double Crochet (Work the first Double Crochet into the base of chain 2 for each round)
Double Crochet around working into circle Slip into top of Chain 2 to join, (slip into top of chain 2 in each following round)
Rnd 2.  Chain 2: Double Crochet around. (fig1)
Rnd 3: Chain 2, Double Crochet , 2 Double Crochet in next, repeat around around (increasing every 2nd stitch) Slip into top of Chain 2 to join (Fig2)
Rnd 4: Chain 2, Double Crochet around Slip into top of Chain 2 to join
Rnd 5 : Chain2, Double Crochet in next 2 stitches, 2 Double Crochet in next (increasing every 3rd stitch) Slip into top of Chain 2 to join
Rnd 6-9: Dc around (remember always 1st Double Crochet into the base of Chain2, this creates a small increase in each round as you go) Slip into top of Chain 2 to join (fig3)
Rnd 10: chain 2, Double Crochet around, Slip into top of Chain 2 to join (fig 4)
Rnd 11:Chain2, 1 Double crochet in next 3 stitches, 2 Double Crochet in 4th stitch repeat around, Slip into top of Chain 2 to join
Rnd 12: 2 single crochet in each stitch around
Rnd 13: single crochet around

.....and just because I did not want to leave it at round 13 as its Halloween, and unlucky for some....
If you feel you want the hat with a larger brim at this point, just do another increase round here, or Dc around.but finish with a single crochet round, to make the brim stiffer.
Rnd:14 Sc around (figure 5)

How to make the Witches WIG or the Hat With Braids

Create Several lengths of yarn all the same size (I used my daughters arms and wound the yarn around a few times until I felt there was enough to make thin plaits/braids.
Lay out the lengths of yarn straight.
to make the fringe,
Start in the middle point of our lengths of yarn
we are going to use smaller lengths (made in the same way as above, do NOT cut these yet) attach by slipping one end through the other end, and tightening (figure 1 & 2)
Continue until you have a Fringe effect in the middle of your length of yarn
Cut all the looped edges, and straighten fringe.
Pleat the braids on both sides (Figure 3 &4)
Secure ends of pleats with orange yarn tightly wound round to hold together
trim to even up ends

Attach your braided hairpiece to the front of your witches hat.
Use Black yarn for this (figure 5)

Free Crochet Lavander Potpourri Holder Pattern (Great Gift Idea)

Beautiful easy crochet lavender potpourri holder. Ideal as a gift for someone special or for just making for the home.
I have my little lavender pot on my bedside table and love the soothing effects of the scent. Excellent for helping you drift off to sleep. I suffer from Rheumatoid Arthritis, I try not to let it get me down, and find lavender very beneficial for helping me when y symptoms flair up. Lavender is mostly known for its health benefits and also the beautiful flowers are so delicate, I have the most beautiful FRENCH LAVENDER -( Lavendula stoechas) In my front garden and every time I see it I have always wondered if I could somehow re-create it with yarn.  I eventually decided to go with a single crochet V stitch, as I loved how it looked like the main part of the flower. And went on to re-create the leaves with descending stitches all worked into the one stitch.  Just add in your favourite Potpourri finish off with a white ribbon threaded around through the alternate DC V rounds and if I do say so myself I think it turned out spectacularly.
