3291  CROCHET / Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller / baby hat, I am so not crochet friendly any more on: January 07, 2010 11:54:07 AM
Many years ago I started irish crochet, I made an elaborate collar which took ages and ages as its very fine thread and a small hook. Since then I havent done anything. But a friend of mine had a baby recently and I got another friend to knit some hats and stuff, (I am not knit friendly either!!) but the hats have been lost.

I am working on posting a project on every completed project boards here on craftster. so I thought it would be a good idea to crochet the baby a hat. This is the result. I mostly used the pattern from the happy hooker, but with a slight modification here and there, mostly to make it a bit bigger as I didnt think the 'body' of the hat was long enough.

No baby in the house at the moment, so its modelled on a bowl!


its made from worsted weight wool, (for those of you who speak european, double knitting,!) on a size 4 hook

I am still not a huge crochet fan, but bow down in admiration at those who do, Its just a little slow for me, I am far too impatient.

Thanks InShambles. BTW I am off to the Uk next month, let me know if there is anything in particular you want. newspapers are always easy, they dont use tokens for the tube, mostly stored value cards these days, but i am sure we have the odd paper ticket or two knocking around here somewhere, my daughters dad lives in London so we go there regularly.

As an organiser, if you have someone wanting to participate, its their first swap and they dont have a date of birth on their profile. I am assuming that there is no way of checking that they are actually over 16, except their word? Or am I wrong?

Muria well if its any consolation, Re the knitting. i started knitting a shrug from a ravelry pattern (this was when i decided that the nuns werent going to win, i am going to knit and bought a lot of -cheapish-yarn) so the pattern was basically a big rectangle that you sewed together to make two sleeves. So I am about one sleeve lenght in and think its going to be a silly shrug, I am too big to have it drape properly. So i am torn, Do i knit another sleeve and then figure out (ie wing) the body to make a t-tunic shape. Or do i turn it into a (big) scarf. Option A actually means clearing out my craftroom a little to find the original pattern.

Or do I just keep dusting around it and start a baby hat! O

I think you are right a baby hat it is, i just need a pattern now.

hey I am a seriously traumatised knitter...read this post and you will understand..lol
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=297898.0

But my friend has a 5 month old baby who needs a hat, so I figure even I can knit a baby hat..

although for some bizarre reason I am tempted my socks..but I figure if I go and lie down for a while the urge will go away.

Any tips from those that have already made them, Did you glue them before or after cutting, would glueing after make it easier to cut, I assume you glue the edges and not the individual pages.

I wonder if you could glue the pages, but not the cover , clamp them down well and drill a hole through the pages and then use something like a coping saw or fret saw to cut them all out at once. And then glue down the back cover.
