Super Simple Super Bulky Hat

I came up with another easy hat pattern for charity. I'm currently in the middle of my second one. Here is the first one:

It's about 21" around, gauge of about 2.5 hdcs to an inch.

Abbreviations used: sl st=slip stitch, hdc=half double crochet, sc=single crochet, ch=chain,


2 skeins of worsted weight yarn. The hat is made with two stands held together. As you can see, I'm using a solid and a variegated, but you can use two of the same color or two solids.

9mm or size M/N crochet hook.

Yarn needle and scissors.


Chain 3, join with slip st to make a circle.

Round 1: Ch 1, hdc 9 times in the circle. Join with sl st, ch 1. (10 hdc)

Round 2: Hdc in same st as join. 2 hdc in each st around. Join. Ch. 1. (20 hdc)

Round 3: Hdc in same st as join. 1 hdc in next st. *2 hdc in next st, 1 hdc in next st*. Repeat from * around. Join. Ch 1. (30 st)

Round 4: Hdc in same st as join, 1 hdc in next 2 st. *2 hdc in next st, 1 hdc in next 2 st.* Repeat from * around. Join with sl st. Ch 1. (40 st.)

Round 5 through 14: Hdc in each st around. Join with sl st. Chain 1. (40 st.)

Round 15: Sc in each st around, join. Finish off, weave in ends.

Nine Lines Washcloth

Hello again. How is everyone? It's going about the same here, Jerek's still in the same shape. I did have a nice weekend. It was the circuit assembly, which is a two day series of Bible talks that takes place every year, along with the District Convention (three days) and the Special Assembly Day (one day.) There were many upbuilding Bible-based talks, and it was good to see a lot of people I haven't seen in a while.

As you can tell by the title of the post, though, the assembly isn't the main point of my writing to you this time. I made a washcloth last week. I used a stitch pattern that I learned last fall from a afghan block. It was called Plowed Rows, but I didn't think that name fit the washcloth. Instead I am calling it Nine Lines, because it has nine lines. (I know, ain't I creative? (-:)

Here is the cloth. Not a great photo, but as good as I can do right now.

And on to the pattern.

I think this would be a great pattern to learn how to slip stitches with…
