Following on from my crochet block stitch ear warmer I am continuing with the winter accessory theme, I really like the effect the plaid/interlocking blocking stitch gives and thought it would look really good as a hat so decided to make a plaid effect hat with pom pom detail.

The wool I used was already in my stash (love a project which can use up some of my leftover wool).

The grey: DK wool, no idea where I got this one from, I normally keep them with the labels but for some reason this one seems to have lost its one!.

The green: DK wool, Stylecraft Special DK in Spearmint (1842) – I love this colour, I definitely need to order some more.

The blue: DK wool, Stylecraft Special DK in Aster (1003).

Materials:

  • 4mm crochet hook.
  • Scissors.
  • Darning needle.
  • Wool: 3 colours. I used grey (colour 1), blue (colour 2) and spearmint (colour 3).

Notes:

Fasten off.

  • Fasten off all loose ends.
  • Fold hat in half with right sides together and slip stitch down the side to join.
  • Turn out the right way.
  • Sew around the top edge of the hat weaving in and out of the middle tr/dc in each set of 3 on the 2nd row down from the top.
  • Pull tight and sew to secure (make sure the top of the hat is tucked inwards).
  • Attach the pom pom to the top of the hat by casting on at the top of the hat and sewing up through the middle of the pom pom and down back to the hat until the pom pom feels secure. Fasten off.
