Crochet NBA Hat – Yarn Club Fundraising Project #3 – Free Pattern

When I sold my first project- the ear warmer, the associate dean passed by and asked if we would make and sell any items for men.  And he said he would be interested in a basket ball hat.  You name it, I make it.  Here’s what I made for him:

File_002

I used Bernat Premium Yarn (Color: Royal Blue) that I got from Walmart for the blue, and used scrap yarns left from my previous projects for the orange and white.

And here’s the pattern that I made up based on an NBA tuque that I found in google:

ABBREVIATIONS

ch = chain; sl st = slip stitch; st(s) = stitche(es); sc = single crochet; hdc = half double crochet; rep = repeat; * = repeat whatever follows the * as indicated.

Note: At the end of each round of hdc, slip stitch and chain 2, then turn.

R1: Using blue color, 5 hdc in magic ring. – 5 hdc

R2: 2 hdc in each hdc around – 10 hdc

R3: 2 hdc in each hdc around – 20 hdc

R4: *hdc 1, 2 hdc in next hdc*, rep 10 times.  – 30 hdc

R5: *hdc 2, 2 hdc in next hdc*, rep 10 times.  – 40 hdc

R6: *hdc 3, 2 hdc in next hdc*, rep 10 times.  – 50 hdc

R7: *hdc 4, 2 hdc in next hdc*, rep 10 times.  – 60 hdc

R8: hdc in each hdc around. – 60 hdc

R9: *hdc 5, 2 hdc in next hdc*, rep 10 times.  – 70 hdc

R10-R18: hdc in each hdc around. – 70 hdc

R19: change to white yarn, hdc in each hdc around. – 70 hdc

R20: change to blue yarn, hdc in each hdc around. – 70 hdc

R21: change to orange yarn, hdc in each hdc around. – 70 hdc

R22: change to blue yarn, hdc in each hdc around. – 70 hdc

R23: change to white yarn, hdc in each hdc around. – 70 hdc

You will now do the edge of the hat by using front post half double crochet and back post half double crochet.

R24: On each of the 70 hdc from R23, you make 1 front post half double crochet and 1 back post half double crochet alternatively across. – 70 stitches

R25: Make 1 back post half double crochet and 1 front post half double crochet alternatively across. – 70 stitches

Repeat R24 and R25 until you reach the height of your preference for the edge.  I repeated twice and ended in R29.

Fasten off and sew in ends.

Knitted Reversible Twisted Cable Rib Shrug

I have been working on this for a while and finally it’s completed.  I started the pattern with something I found online, but by accident I did it my way which turned into a slightly different pattern.  I originally planned to make this for myself, but it turned out a bit too small for me.  Since I promised my niece to make her a shrug, and this size is just perfect for her, she’s now the owner.  Pattern (that includes both teeager and adult size) is available at Etsy, Craftsy and Ravelry.  Hope you will like it!

Crochet Bouquet and DIY Card as Bridal Shower Gifts

It has been a while since my last post.  Life has been busy with two young ones during summer time, plus we got a pantry bug issue that bothered us for a while.  So finally I got some work done, because of a bridal shower that I went to over the weekend.  Here’s the card that I made (click here for what I came across on Pinterest that inspired me to make my version):

I also made this cute bouquet as a gift for the bride-to-be (click here for instructions that I used to make mine):
