Are you almost done with the MILES of stockinette or single crochet in the Febrary hat??  Don’t forget to post a photo of your finished hat on Instagram with #WS12Hatsof2020 or in our Facebook group (12 Hats of 2020 Members).  Of course, you can always come and show us before the end of February as well, and we’ll get you entered in the drawing to win the yarn for this next month’s hat pattern.


Ready for March’s hat patterns??


The knit pattern is…

Still by Anna Johanna—around $7.50

This very pretty hat is knit with two strands held together, a fingering and a lace weight yarn. From Ravelry: “The hat starts off with a very neat long tail tubular cast on (photo tutorial included) and a tall ribbing which can be folded in half for a more fitted beanie look. The rest of the hat is easy lace with crown decreases hidden in the lace pattern.”





March crochet pattern:

Lacy Leaves Hat by Maggy Strong–FREE

This hat is very similar to the March knit hat—it is made with a fingering weight and a lace weight held together. It can be slouchy or beanie style by folding up the brim.


However, after making this hat, I have a few thoughts.  The final product came out pretty large.  I have a big head, so this isn’t a problem for me, but if I were to make the hat for someone else, I would go down a hook size to a size D.


Also, there is errata for the pattern.  In Row 4, the pattern should read, “Worked into the group of 5: 2 dc in first stitch, 1 dc in next 3 st, 2 dc in next st, ch 2, skip 2 st.”


As this is a free pattern, we can’t be too upset that the pattern isn’t QUITE perfect! The rest of the pattern is fantastic, and I hope you all love crocheting it!
