Hat Warmers

I've gone


One (reversible) for summer (sewing project)...
Once again, the pattern is by the fabulous
little things to sew


and two for winter (crochet-ed).
My own creation

which goes something like this:

Ch 4, join with sl st to form a ring
Rnd 1: Ch 2(counts as first dc), 9 dc in ring. Join with sl st to top of beg dc. (10 dc)
Rnd 2: Ch 2, dc in same st, 2dc in next st and in every st around. Join. (20 dc)
Rnd 3: Ch 2, 2 dc in next st, *dc in next st, 2 dc in next. Repeat from*. Join. (30dc)
Rnd 4: Ch 2, dc in next st, 2 dc in next st, *dc in next 2 st, 2 dc in next st. Repeat from*. Join. (40)
Rnd 5-11: Ch 2, dc in every st around. Join (40dc)
Rnd 12: Ch 1, hdc in every st around. Join. (40 hdc)
Rnd 13 Picot Edging: *Ch 3, sl st in first chain, sl st in next 3 st**. Repeat from* to ** until the end. Join.

The little white flowers were made like this:

First a basic for the petals:
1. one flower petal: 5 dc, take hook off loop, put hook (from front to back) through 3rd chain (the last ch of space before the 5 dc) and the ”loose loop”, then you pull through both loops on hook.

At the start
Chain 4, Slip Stitch into first chain (to make the first circle)
1st round:
chain one, 7 single crochet in circle. end round with slip st in chain.
2nd round:
make 1 flower petal in each single crochet with chain 3 between each one, end round with slip st in 3rd chain at beginning of round = 8 petals

Makes sense?

If not, just email me/comment and I'll do my best to describe it to you...
