Inspired by the One Hour Scarf by Laughing Purple Goldfish designs, I have designed a “One Hour Hat” so that I can make a quick gift set. I found the hat can be made in about 45 minutes.
It is actually nice and soft, I filled the inside of it to make it stand up on its own for the photo
This hat can be made using any soft 8ply (DK) yarn. A great pattern for a quick gift, or to use up your stash leftovers.
The hat is worked holding 4 strands together. You will need approx. 35 grams of yarn for each strand. Or approx. 140 grams in total. I used three strands of Panda Baby Lustre 8 ply which I had leftover from some baby items, and 1 strand of Cleckheaton Country Naturals 8ply.
4 strands 8 ply (DK) yarn. (For best results, choose soft yarns).
10mm hook (N/P)
Gauge: 7 DCs = 10 cms, 3 rows should give a height of 6 cms
Pattern is in US terminology.
Holding 4 strands together, Join yarn to hook with a slip knot, leave a 6 inch tail.
ROW 1 – Remove the hook, enlarge the loop a little. Reach through the loop with the hook, YO and pull through a loop. Chain 3. 8 DC into loop. Join with slip stitch to top of 1st ch3 (9 DC in total). Pull slip knot tight to close.
ROW 2 – Ch2, 1 DC in same stitch, 2DC in each stitch to the end, join with sl st (18 DC)
ROW 3 – Ch2, 1 DC in same stitch, *1 DC in next st, 2 DC in next st* to end, join with sl st (26 DC)
ROW 4 – Ch2, 1 DC in same stitch, *1 DC in each of next 3 stitches, 2 DC in next stitch* to end, join with sl st (32 DC)
ROW 5 – REPEAT ROW 4
ROW 6 – Ch2, 1 DC in same stitch, 1 DC in each stitch, join with sl st
ROW 7 – REPEAT ROW 6 until hat reaches desired length.
Fasten off, weave in ends.
Make the matching set: The One Hour Scarf the One Hour Fingerless Mittens and this Hat are all made with the same stitch design. You could embellish them with matching contrasting crochet flowers, or for a man, make the set in dark colours, eg. a mixture of blues or a mixture of browns.
Every effort has been made to ensure the accuracy of these instructions. We cannot be responsible for differences in individual stitching techniques or typographical errors.
