The Anahata Hat is beautiful when crocheted in one solid color. It is also lovely when crocheted in more than one color. Simply by changing where you make your color changes you can transform the hat completely. I have included images of 4 of the hats I have crocheted with this pattern and each one is different. I’m not sure which is my favorite!

The pattern includes shaping instructions to make the hat follow the curve of the head. If you would like it to be more slouchy simply work additional rounds of the repeat section before beginning the shaping instructions.

I chose 3 pretty colors from the LoveCrochet Paintbox Simply DK line to make these designs. This yarn is lightweight and beautiful to work with. The colors are bold and bright and the yarn is soft to the touch. The yarn did not split while I was working and even though I frogged and restarted a number of times before coming up with this finished design, the yarn did not fray or lose it’s stitch definition. It held up very well to my unraveling and reworking. This is the very first time I have tried Paintbox Yarns and I’d like to thank LoveCrochet for giving me this opportunity to try their product.

The finished hats are designed to reach the base of the earlobe (nape of the neck) when pulled down. They can also be worn back on the head as a slouch hat and since they are shaped to the curve of the head, they do not have a lot of excess fabric weighing down the back of the hat. These lovely lightweight caps will make great chemo caps too. There are no large spaces between the stitches and the length allows you to cover the hairline completely.

Special Stitch

Long Double Crochet (long dc)

Center Stitch Placement for Long Double Crochet Oombawka Design Crochet

The long dc is worked the same as a regular double crochet except  you need to adjust the height of the stitch to match the height of the current round of stitches. The long dc is being worked into the center stitch beneath the ch1sp from the previous round.  The center stitch is the second stitch in the set of three sts that were worked 2 rounds previous. 

Yarn over the hook, insert the hook into the stitch or space indicated (2 rounds previous), yarn over and pull up one long loop. Allow this long loop to come up to the same stitch height as the current round of stitches. Yarn over and pull through 2 loops. Yarn over and pull through the remaining 2 loops.

Notes:

  • We count the initial ch 3 as 1 dc BUT do not join into it at the end of the round. Instead, join into the first ‘real’ dc you worked. 
  • To finish off: ch 1, cut yarn and pull the yarn end through the loop
  • Sl st does not count as a stitch in the row end counts.
  • When the pattern indicates to work into the center dc, found 2 rounds before, if you have a slip stitch in that dc already, simply crochet into that sl st as the center dc.
  • The hat band is seamed using a simple whip stitch technique using the yarn end you left at the beginning of the pattern.
  • Stitch multiple is 4

A Note About Color Changes

The pattern is written as though you are working in a single color of yarn. To make color changes, after you slip stitch to join at the end of a round, finish off the color.  Join a new color of yarn in the next ch1sp with a standing dc. You may substitute a slip stitch to join and ch 3. This will then count as the first dc of the round.

Since you are joining your new yarn color directly into the ch1sp, you will need to skip the:  sl st in the next dc, sl st in the ch1sp part of the instructions. Here’s what it looks like when we work in a single color yarn:

Working in a single color slip stitch to the ch1sp to begin the next round. Oombawka Design Crochet

 

So, when we change colors and join directly into the ch1sp we don’t need to slip stitch over to it.
So you will Skip
: “Sl st in the next dc, sl st in the ch1sp.” Then follow the pattern as written until you decide to change colors again.

The hat is worked from the band to the crown in one piece. We begin by crocheting the band, back and forth in rows and then move to the body of the hat.

  1. Hi Annie, If you click on the PrintFriendly button at the top of the post you can click to remove all images from it (at the top it is an option) and then you can click on anything that you don’t want in the post and it deletes it 🙂 That way you can keep only what you need or want. Hope this helps! I will also consider how I can make this work on future patterns – I’ve been thinking about it but I am worried that Google will penalize my site with a duplicate content warning if my posts written text is the same (without the images and with). I will see what I can come up with as I totally understand not needing all the images and such! Have a lovely week, Rhondda

  2. Lovely hat pattern. Just a thought though, on the pattern. I’m trying to print and it’s a good 20 pages! You give amazing detailed instructions, but for people that have crocheted for years, in my case a good 55 yrs, It would be great to have a print option that has 1 picture and remove all the details that aren’t needed for a very experienced crocheter. It would be nice to be able to print on just a few pages. Even if all the size ranges are included, it should be able to be printed on about 8 pages, maybe less, I’m guessing. Is this possible? Thank you!
