Justa Hat

Over the holidays, I was asked by someone if I could make a hat for them. I’m not sure if she really wanted a hat or just wanted me to make something for her… but anyway, I’ve made a hat.

I started off with the magic ring and did the “circle” increases until I was working with hmmmm 14 stitches between increases? I think that’s what it was. I wanted it to be large at the top and then decrease it to fit a head.
Next I did double crochet, chain, skip a stitch, double crochet for two rows.
Next, I did two rows of linked double crochet (linking the stitches together so it will be warmer.)
The next 2 rows were decreases, working primarily with: 2 linked doubled crochets and then a decrease. I kept testing it on my head to get the right circumference.
When it was the right size, I finished off with a row of single crochet and then tied it off.

I like it
I would wear it.
(And I like that it is larger on the top so less likely to get the “hat head” effect on the hair.

Vorlicek ...

I like how your hat turned out.

It is nicely done, and there is no such thing as “justa” hat because anything you make, no matter how complicated or how simple, is special. After all, not everyone knows how to create. Good job.

thanks Vorlicek & flamingfountain1 :)

I used to write an article for our local newspaper re: nature (and more). I often talked about the “justas” — just a crow, just a dandelion and how we minimize something because it is so familiar.

“JUSTA” something I made. You are right – there is nothing un-special about that!
