I want to make a hat but i don't understand how you crochet in a circle and then continue the rows. Ive tried it a few times and can't figure it out. Can someone explain it to me or post a link for a tutorial, please.

thank you.

If you crochet a ring of 2 or 3 sts, then st 1 ch 1 every row, you will have a flat circle. One way to make a hat is to first measure how many sts go around your head, then make a flat circle until you reach the predetermined number of sts. Once it's big enough, don't increase anymore, just keep crochetting singles or doubles, or whatever you want, until it is long enough! That's a pretty easy way. Good luck!

the crochet me is a good site you can also try about.com and search for crochet for tips there.

the basic is a simple chain of 5, then slip stitch to join (5)

the next round doubles every stitch put in the appropriate amount of chains for the first stich i.e. 1 if you are doing singles, 2 if you are doing half doubles and so on then you put 2 stitches in every one (10), slip stitch and join

the next round and every row following just add a stitch between sets of two stitches

round 3 add 1 stitch between every other set of two stitches (beginning chain, two stitches in next, 1 stitch, 2 in next)

round 4 add 2 stitches between every other set of two stitches (beginning chain, 1 stich in next, 2 in next, 1 stitch in next 2 stitches, 2 in next)

round 5 add 3 stitches between every other set of two stitches
round 6 add 4 and so on until you get to the size you need the flat round to be

after that you can pretty much crochet around the round until it is the length that you want it to be.

Another easy way to do a hat that is not round is to just do a chain, measure it around your head to make sure that it fits, crochet straight across and back until it is the length that you want it to be and sew up the side and gather the top.

I am making one of those hats now because the last one I made was sooo warm.

Let me know how you make out!
