FREE Adult Crochet Hat Pattern (looks like Knit)

Looks like Knit But its Crochet Warm Cosy Winter Hat (FREE Pattern)

A Beautiful Cosy Crochet Hat FREE Pattern   Being Warm at this time of year is essential. I find a lot of the basic crochet hats quite drafty. Here in South West Scotland winds are strong and it's chilly. SO I am always looking for a good thick warm hat. It makes it even better when its a fast, easy pattern.  Worked in Rows, using the amazing 3rd loop stitch of the HDC aka...Camel stitch.  Which makes this hat look like it's been knitted. But Its definitely crocheted.     You can BUY A PDF of This Pattern  From Ravelry Thank you for your continued Support   CLICK HERE  

Unique Crochet Baby Shawl Blanket Pattern Perfect Gift for a newborn

ree crochet baby shawl patterns crochet stitches baby blanket crochet baby blanket patterns easy free easy crochet baby blanket crochet baby blankets for beginners quick crochet baby blanket easy crochet baby blankets for beginners double crochet baby blanket quick and easy crochet baby blanket


A Unique crochet Baby Blanket, with beautiful crochet stitches, finished with an easy crochet decorative border.   This baby blanket will become a family heirloom for all the future babies within the family.

I was looking for a baby blanket pattern that looked impressive yet would be easy and quick to make. I hunted all over and whilst I found several beautiful crocheted baby blanket patterns, none just seemed right for the recipient. I wanted a really unique crochet pattern.

Eventually, I stumbled on a crochet pattern design ( not an actual pattern) which looked delicate and would create a nice lacy textured blanket.

In today's modern world more a stroller or car seat sized blanket, yet could be used for those glorious days when out and about with a pram.

But the beauty of this pattern stitch is that you can just keep repeating the established pattern which is worked from the center out (think granny square but with shells and chain stitches)

for the baby set and blanket I used the beautiful Snuggly Sirdar 4 ply ( 2 x 100grms for the blanket...with a little leftover, which actually made the booties ( I cannot get over how beautiful this yarn works up for baby items-
I made this blanket using Sidar Snuggly I am a HUGE fan of this yarn BUY NOW Sirdar Snuggly 4 Ply 50g - Cream (303)*crochet baby blanket


Whilst I do not claim to be a professional crochet designer I am a crochet hobbyist and addict, crochet is my passion. I love to experiment and come up with crochet designs, that get shared around, thus leading to people contacting me and asking to help them or if I have a pattern for them. I spent more time via emails and face book answering questions about my work, I decided to create this blog to help inspire and help others to create beautiful crocheted pieces of work. So sometimes the patterns will be written as how I have made and understood and interpreted them. Sometimes I may even make something, Not take notes and need to go back and work out what I did. 
As Always I welcome any constructive feedback.  

I used a 3.5mm hook and pattern is written in US terms.

The blanket can be made to ANY size you wish, the blanket featured was suitable as a prams blanket / small shawl.
 
 
Notes: This is actually based on the Classic Fantail Shell stitch but worked in the round.
I have added a video tutorial I found on youtube of the basic stitch pattern
The pattern is made up of basic combinations of
Shell: [7 dc] in the specified chain space
V stitch: [dc, ch1, dc]

Slip to join. when you are joining the shell rounds, I like to catch the top of the chain, to slip stitch,  as I am finishing off the single crochet.

Shell Cluster: Worked In the v-stitch clusters from the previous row 7dc in first ch1 space, SC in ch3 space, 7 dc in next ch1 space – shell cluster made. 
Double V-stitch  CORNERS : [dc, ch1, dc, ch3, dc, ch1, dc].  (these are worked into the SC in the middle of the previous rounds shell clusters – these are worked in each of the 4 corners of the blanket)


In alternate rounds, you will secure the ch 5, of the previous round by working a single crochet into the middle of the shell round BELOW.
I found a video explaining the crochet stitch it can be viewed here- If the video is not showing you can click here to go to YouTube to view HERE - for finishing and completing this blanket you will need to come back to this website
