Love, one of the easiest and most complicated positive emotions. Please read this post to learn about the “Positive Psychology and crochet” link and find out more about why our favorite hobby makes us so happy. This year I want to write patterns with happiness in mind. When I set out to make a hat for this season it was COLD! My mind immediately went to creature comforts. The free crochet slouch pattern has a double brim that I made to keep my loved ones nice and toasty. I am a mother of two and it makes me very happy to know my kids are comfortable and warm. Lion Brand’s Wool Ease seemed perfect for my mission to create a snugly slouch as the animal fibers will retain heat better than solely acrylic yarn.
The pattern for this simple crochet cable beanie has been floating around my hook and computer for almost a year now. When Lion Brand’s Heartland Yarn joined the mix, I couldn’t wait any longer to share the free pattern here. If you are new to crocheting cables, check out this post for a photo tutorial. The pattern below is adult medium woman’s size. Hint: make this without the pompom and get a classic cable beanie for men
I set out to make a striped hat but somehow it did not dawn on me that my stripes would turn out vertical until I started 🙂 . How fun is the vertical illusion that the moss stitch brings to this project? You will work this striped crochet hat from brim to crown. The pattern is really very easy and would be fun in any colors. This is one of those stitches that can work for super chunky yarn and sport weight alike. It always creates a cohesive, almost knit look fabric and I definitely will use it again for a hat.

Ever wondered how to get rid of that clumsy seam when you make a hat with double crochet stitches? When I first started making hats this was my number one problem. I was proud as can be when I had finished the hat, until the person turned around! Maybe I am a bit OCD (okay, maybe a lot OCD) when it comes to crochet but a badly noticeable seam will ruin my work for me. I want to show you how to make a seamless crochet join.
