Oh wow, thanks everyone for the comments! I'm glad that you guys like them!
@CDEeeek: It's funny you say that. I truly think the Zim hat was maybe one of the easier crafts I did. I also think I didn't do anything someone else can't do. Just takes a bit of thinking and willing to figure some things out, like formulating the shapes. I think the Megaman hat proves it, because I've seen BunnieBard do a hat extremely close to this one way before me,
. I just wanted to demysitfy the concept instead of waiting for her to restock hehe. Since she wasn't revealing the pattern (which I understand, because she sells that on her online store), I had the honors of coming up with a pattern for it like she did...
@thania: I can help with learning how to make a hat if you want. I learned how to work in the round my second day, and the rest was history. I learned the circle chain, which I completely hate, and then I learned the magic circle a day later. Now I magic circle all beanies.
@Oath Keeper: Steal them, but beware, you are stealing them from someone who is a big Mega Man fan lol. Seriously, if you did, it'd just give me a reason to try and recreate them faster :3
@spaz2phreak: I feel the same way about knitting. I suck at it, crocheting seems SO much easier.
@n3k0cupc4k3: Nice 1337! From what I've noticed, this works for me with all my beanies, but I know there are multiple ways to do these.
All my beanies come from basic concepts, with an exception of a couple of unthemed hats:
If it's HDC or higher:
after your first round, you increase in each stitch (x2 your stitches), and then add a single stitch in between each increase in each following round, so if you'd did a pattern to make a HDC basic beanie you do this...
MC 10 HDC (round one, 10 st)
HDC inc (2 HDCs in 1 st) in every stitch, which should be 2 in every stitch, which equals 20 in round 2
then [1 HDC in the first st, 2 HDCs in the next st]. Repeat in brackets all the way around, which should equal 30
then [1 HDC in the first st, 1 HDC in the next st, 2 HDCs in the next stitch] Repeat til you get 40 stitches.
then [1 HDC, 1 HDC, 1 HDC, 2 HDCs] Repeat til you get to 50.
then [1 HDC, 1 HDC, 1 HDC, 1 HDC, 2 HDCs] Repeat til you reach 60.
then 1 HDC in every stitch for each round after that.
then with SC hats, I'd follow a similar increase pattern, except once I reach a round with at least 40 stitches in it, I'd do a round with just 1 sc in each st before I'd do the next increase, and since I normally do sc hats in 8s, I'd do 8, 16, 24, 32, 40, 40, 48, 48, 56, 56, 64.....
Those are what works for me, but I'm sure there are many others.
@All who love a man that crochets: Awwww <3
