Skill Level - Beginner/Intermediate


Size Estimate - Newborn - 4 months 13-16 inches (size can easily be modified for a larger cap

Abbreviations
DC - Double Crochet
HDC - Half Double Crochet
CH - Chain
SL ST - Slip Stitch

FPDC - Front Post Double Crochet
BPDC - Back Post Double Crochet


Definitions
Front Post Double Crochet - Put your hook to the right of the stitch, around the post and up the opposite side. 
Complete the double crochet.
Left Hand Front Post Double Crochet - Put your hook to the left of the stitch, around the post and up the opposite side. Complete the double crochet.

Back Post Double Crochet
- Put your hook to the backside right of the stitch, around the front, to the left. Wrap the yarn over, pull it through, complete the stitch.

Left Hand Back Post Double Crochet - Put your hook to the backside left of the stitch, around the front, to the right. Wrap the yarn over, pull it through, complete the stitch.

Continual Round -
Put your hook through the top of the first stitch and work the single crochet or stitch that you are working.  This technique is worked instead of joining, to eliminate the seam that will show up when you join rounds.


Yarn Marker -  Marker for the first stitch of each round. I use scrap pieces of yarn to mark the first stitch. 

Work a loose chain of 42. Make sure the chain is not twisted. Join with the beginning chain.



Round 1: Work a chain 1, this will not count as a stitch.  In the same chain, work one double crochet. Work one DC in each chain around for a total of 42 double crochet. Join with the beginning stitch.


Round 2-3:
Work a chain 1, this will not count as a stitch.  We will be working a series of post stitches. *Work a front post double crochet. (see definitions above for details on how to work the FPDC) Work a back post double crochet for each of the next two stitches. (see definitions above for details on how to work the BPDC, continue around from * for a total of 42 stitches. Join with the beginning stitch. Cut the yarn and change color.

Round 4-11: Attach the new color of yarn to the top of any stitch. Work a chain one, single crochet in the same stitch.  Work 1 SC in each stitch around for a total of 42. Work the continual round.  You may want to use a yarn marker to mark what would be the first stitch in each round.  Upon completion, cut a long length of tail. This will be used to sew the top of the cap shut.


Thread your tapestry needle and turn the cap inside out. You will skip 6-7 stitches on each side, sewing the top, center shut. Knot and secure the strand when you get to the to the other side.  Hide the tail between the stitches. Flip the cap right side out.

Cap Corners: Attach the yarn to any stitch in the corner of the stitches that were left un-worked.  Work three rounds of single crochet. This is to make the corner stand up a little higher than the rest of the cap.  Both sides will be done the same way. Slip stitch to finish off, cut off some extra yarn.  Weave the tail through the last round, pull the top shut.

Attaching Pom-Pom: You will run your needle through the center of the pom-pom 5-10 times making sure it is secure. When you go back through, make sure it is slightly over from where you came up so you don't pull your yarn through.  When it is secure, make a knot underneath the ball. Hide the tail between the stitches.

Crochet Team Hat Caleb Crochet Geek - Free Crochet Pattern



Crochet Team Hat Caleb

Written by Teresa Richardson
 +CROCHET GEEK 


Skill Level - Intermediate

Abbreviations
FPDC - Front Post Double Crochet
BPDC - Back Post Double Crochet
CH - Chain
SL ST - Slip Stitch


Materials
Size K/__ mm crochet hook
4 ply yarn
Tapestry Needle


Size estimate will fit a size 22 - 24 inch head, adult size.

You can work this with a smaller crochet hook.  If you use a size I or J, you may want to work 17 or 18 stitches to start, since the size of the hat will be smaller with the smaller crochet hook.  

Chain 6 join.

Chain 1 for the step up on each round, this will not count as a stitch. Work the first back post double crochet around the chain one and the first stitch.

Round 1:  Work 15 double crochet through the chain, join with the beginning stitch. (15 stitch total)

Round 2: chain 1, BPDC, FPDC around each stitch. join with the beginning stitch. (30 stitches total)

Round 3: chain 1, BPDC, FPDC around each stitch. join with the beginning stitch. (60 stitches total) Cut yarn, Change color

Round 4-6: chain 1, BPDC,  FPDC,  join with the beginning stitch. Cut yarn, Change color

Round 7-9: chain 1, BPDC,  FPDC,  join with the beginning stitch. Cut yarn, Change color

Round 10-12: chain 1, BPDC,  FPDC,  join with the beginning stitch. Cut yarn, Change color

Round 13-15: chain 1, BPDC,  FPDC,  join with the beginning stitch. Cut yarn, Change color

Round 16-21: chain 1, BPDC,  FPDC,  join with the beginning stitch. Cut yarn, sew in all the tails.

I have found splitting the yarn to make knots is  a way to keep the tails hidden.  If you sew the tail in as a big strand, there is a risk that it may come out in the wash.  I will sew the tail in a little bit, split the yarn in the tail, sew or hook half of the strand over another strand, then make two knots.    Sew it in a little more, and repeat making knots.

Stitch Instructions and Definitions
Continual Round:  Instead of joining, work a single crochet in top of the first stitch. Working a continual round will eliminate the unsightly seam that occurs with joining a round.

Yarn Marker: A yarn marker is used to identify the first/last stitch of each round. This is so you have an idea when to change rounds with your instructions.  I use left over yarn tails, which are convenient, easy and free.


Chain 4, join with the beginning chain.

Round 1:  Work 10 single crochet through the chain. This is working around the chain, putting your hook through the center of the chain. 
(10 single crochet total)

Round 11: Work 1 SC in ea stitch around  (40 single crochet total)


Scarf:  Work a chain of 45
Round 1: Work 1 SC in each stitch across
Round 3-8: CH 1, Work 1 SC in each stitch across


Fringe: Cut several strands of yarn 4-6 inches in length. To attach, fold the strand in half, insert your hook through the yarn. Put the hook through the end of the scarf, wrap the yarn strands over, pull through and secure.

Seeking Volunteers for Captioning Crochet Videos

I am looking for volunteers to help with subtitling crochet video's in English only. I will be happy to write up a document if you need credit for a course or volunteer work. I am including a link to Universal Subtitles, which is a free subtitle program. I have used the program and it is very easy. It will help keep track of the videos that have captions and the ones that do not. There is a big need for captioning.  The captioned text will provide the ability for the videos to be translated to different languages.  When you subtitle a video, please let me know.





This is the link to the playlists I have created with the video content.  

 http://www.youtube.com/user/tjw1963?feature=mhum#g/p

  • If the video does not have a CC, then captioning has not been created.  
  • You copy and paste the link to the video in the UniversalSubtitle Program.  
  • Please include the name of the video and link when you write. I will need the information to find it.
  • Write to me when the video is complete

I am also providing my email if you would like to let me know when a video is complete, I can go and get the captions.


Thank you, Teresa
