Crochet NBA Hat – Knitting 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:

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.
