Coolishek designed by Krampolinka. Free pattern included.

As you probably know I am crocheting sets for babies not only for photo props but also for babies to go home from birthing centers.

One day I got a message from a customer, let´s call her Helenka, who asked for two hats for her baby. She wanted to use them both for photo props and to be regularly worn. Wow. That was a challenge. Photo props hats are usually more extravagant in opposite to an ordinary hat. So I designed a coolishek. This plastic pattern and details will do a perfect photo and the yarn is soft and warm just perfect for a baby. I am so happy to share this pattern with you. I wrote it down in two sizes.

Let´s get started.

Brown coolishek with a pompom free crochet pattern

Weight: Super Bulky
Meterage: 100 g (3.53 ounces)/120 m (135 yards) (! be careful original yarn Himalaya is a little bit thinner than Bernat blanket yarn so the result might vary)
Hook size: 6 and 5 (I crochet pretty tight so you may need smaller hooks)
Pompom (I made my own from Kartopu Tavsan Simli)
Needle and thread
Decorative button

Price to sell this hat is 190 CZK plus shipping.
Suitable for pre-intermediate

US terminology:
MC – Magic Circle
Sl St – slip stitch
CH – chain stitch
SC – single crochet
HDC – half double crochet
DC – double crochet
FP HDC – front post half double crochet
3BL HDC – back loop half double crochet, crocheted in so called third thread, video here

Each row starts with either 1 CH = Single Crochet or 2 CH = Half Double Crochet/Double Crochet and ends with SlSt. With the use of markers you can crochet around without using SlSt.

Brown (hook 6)
1st row: 10 SC into MC
2nd row: 2 DC into each SC from previous row (20 DC)
3rd row: 2 DC into each DC from previous row (40 DC)
4th row: start with 2 CH = half double crochet, repeat FP HDC and 3BL HDC around the hat (40) – this row is a little bit difficult to make but when you proceed you are almost the winner 🙂
5th – 11 row: repeat FP HDC to FP HDC from previous row and 3BL HDC into 3BL HDC around the hat (40)
White (hook 5)
12th – 15th row: SC around the hat (40 SC).

Hanging loop:
Start inside the hat in the last row. Start with SlSt, make 1CH. Continue with 3 SC into SC from the last row. TURN. Repeat 4 times.

Finish:
Make/sew the pompom to the hat. Sew the button through the hanging loop and the hat.

Dnes přináším slibovaný návod na háčkované vzorované kulíšky. Jak vidíte na fotečkách, lze čepičku různě obměňovat. Můžete přidat ouška (návod jak na ouška bez šití naleznete zde) nebo můžete přidat kytičku (návod na srolovanou kytičku jsme si přinesli zde).
