Crochet Class: Basic Hat Design

Unlock the world of crochet with our engaging and hands-on “Basic Hat Design” class! Whether you’re a beginner or looking to expand your crochet skills, this class is designed to teach you the fundamental techniques required to create your own stylish and cozy hats without relying on a complex pattern.

What You’ll Learn:

  1. Hat Band Techniques: We will learn several ways to create a stretchy hat band to fit any head. We will use the basic chain stitch and/or Foundation stitches to begin, then we will see how different methods (front post/back post crochet, or working in the back loop only) will give us different affects.
  2. Variations: The body of the hat can use a variety of different stitches, the easiest being the moss stitch. We will explore ways to vary the look of your hat easily while trying out different crochet stitches.
  3. Assembly and Finishing: This hat is a low-sew design, as it is mostly assembled as we go. We will gather at the end and attach a pom-pom if desired.

Materials Needed:

  • Yarn (about 150yds). Lion Brand Basic Stitch (anti-pilling) works good for this hat. This technique should work with any weight yarn, but worsted is good to start with.
  • Crochet Hook size suggested for yarn chosen
  • (optional) Large Pom-Pom & Button (1/2 – 1 inch)
  • Yarn needle
  • Scissors

Join us for an enjoyable and educational experience as you embark on your crochet journey, creating beautiful hats that reflect your unique style!
