flower hat flower hat


MATERIALS: J hook; ww yarn approximately 2 oz


I would rate this hat Advanced


Row 6 Tutorial

Note 1: beginning chain does not count as a stitch
Note 2: join in first "real" stitch of round, ignoring beginning chain
Note 3: numbers in ( ) at end of rows depicts number of stitches for the row
Note 4: "eye" refers to the ch 1 that colsed a cluster

ABBREVIATIONS USED:
ch = chain
cluster = group of stitches worked all in the same stitch
dc = double crochet; wrap yarn around hook 1 time and work off loops 2 at a time.
ea = each
dtr = double treble; wrap yarn around hook 3 times and work off 2 loops at a time.
sc = single crochet
sk = skip
st = stitch
yo = yarn over; wrap yarn around hook

ROW 1: ch 3, 12 dc in first st. Join in first dc. (12 sts)

ROW 2: ch 2, 2 dc in same st as join, 2 dc in ea st around. Join in first dc. (24 sts)

ROW 3: ch 2, 2 dc in same sp as join, 1 dc in next st, (2 dc in next st, 1 dc in next st) around. Join in first dc. (36 sts)

ROW 4: ch 2, 2 dc in first st, 1 dc in next 2 sts, (2 dc in next st, 1 dc in next 2 sts) around. Join in first dc. (48 sts)

ROW 5: ch 2, 2 dc in same st as join, 1 dc in next 3 sts, (2 dc in next st, 1 dc in next 3 sts) around. Join in first dc. (60 sts)

ROW 6:
step 1: ch 6,
holding last loop of ea st on hook,
2 dtr in 6th ch from hook (3 loops on hook - leave them there)

step 2: sk 5 sts
holding last loop of ea st on hook,
3 dtr in next st (6 loops on hook)
yo, draw thru 6 loops on hook
ch 1 to close cluster

step 3: ch 6,
holding last loop of ea st on hook
2 dtr in 6th ch from hook (3 loops on hook - leave them there)

step 4: holding last loop of ea st on hook
3 dtr in same st as last cluster (6 loops on hook - leave them there)

step 5: sk 5 sts
holding last loop of ea st on hook
3 dtr in next st (9 loops on hook)
yo, draw thru all 9 loops
ch 1 to close cluster
note: the last step 5 cluster of row 6 is worked in the base of the first ch-6

Repeat steps 3 - 4 - 5 around, ending with
repeat step 3 (3 loops on hook)
yo, draw thru 3 loops
join with sl st in eye of first cluster.

ROW 7: This row is worked in the eyes made in row 6 instead of skipping stitches.
step 1: ch 6
holding last loop of ea st on hook
2 dtr in 6th st from hook
yo, draw thru 3 loops
ch 1 to close cluster

step 2: ch 6
holding last loop of ea st on hook
2 dtr in 6th st from hook (3 loops on hook - leave them there)

step 3: holding last loop of ea st on hook
3 dtr in same eye as first cluster (6 loops on hook - leave them there)

step 4: holding last loop of ea st on hook
3 dtr in next eye (9 loops on hook)
yo, draw thru 9 loops
ch 1 to close cluster

Repeat steps 2 - 3 - 4 around, ending with
repeat step 2 and 3 (6 loops on hook)
yo draw thru 6 loops
ch 1 to close cluster
join with sl st in eye of first cluster.


Note: row 8 is worked in the eyes and the ch-6 of the first clusters, place the stitch around the chain instead of in it.

ROW 8: ch 1, sc in same st as join, ch 3, (1sc in next ch-6, ch 3, sc in next eye, ch 3) around, end with sl st in last eye, sl st in first sc to join.

ROW 9: ch 1, sc in same st as join, (2 sc in ch-3 sp, sc in next sc, 2 sc in ch-3 sp) around. Join in first sc.

Fasten off and weave in ends.
