This week I thought I'd send a pic of a Thanksgiving hat, and the pattern for how it was done. We had Key Lime Pie to celebrate...not as traditional as Pumpkin but it was yummy.
Anyway, knit using the normal hat pattern, but start off with large needles, then after a few rows use medium needles, small for the middle bit, medium and back to large again. That will give you the 'dip' in the middle of the hat. It's a great cheat's way to make a hat that gets narrow in the middle, without having to reduce and increase stitches!
Once you made the body of the hat, you can crochet a brim onto the edge. Just crochet two double stitches into each cast on stitch. It's really easy! You can add a brim to any sort of hat...maybe a witches' hat for Halloween.
I'm off on holiday next week...and I'm taking my needles with me!
