CABBAGE PATCH DOLL HAT

CABBAGE PATCH DOLL HAT


This ever-so-ute cap has been (im)patiently waiting in my “to-do” list for a long time.. and finally it’s turn has come.  I am pretty sure this is on your list as well, so let’s get to it together, shall we?

This is not my pattern.  These are my notes using yarns available in India.

Thank you for joining me as we work on this lovely pattern together.

Materials used : Today I’ve used some unbranded 6/8 ply acrylic yarn with a 5.5 mm crochet
For Indians : I purchased my yarn from Samrat Megastores, Pune (check Facebook for the page link & info).  Pradhan Stores, Mumbai, also has similar yarn.

Abbreviations used :
fsc : Foundation single crochet                                 dc : Double crochet
ch : chain                                                                    ch-sp : chain space
sp : space                                                                    rep : Repeat


Stitches used :
Magic circle : To refresh your skill, please view this easy video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WLuSVyKvoUg

Chainless dc start : Instead of the usual start with ch 2 or ch 3, I’d like to introduce this lovely new way of starting a dc row.  Do take a look at this self-explanatory super video http://www.mooglyblog.com/chainless-starting-double-crochet/
In case you are unhappy with this start, or do not like it, do continue with the usual ch-2 or ch-3 start.  However, all instructions will be given assuming that you are using the chainless dc start.

Please remember to add the original blog link when you share your pattern.

I have not really changed much for this pattern – it was just perfect the way it is.  I have just written these notes so we Indians know that this pattern is available, and that we can work it (without any change) using the locally available 6-8 ply yarns. If my blog has added any value for you, I’d appreciate a mention too.  Thanks

The most challenging and fun part are looping those loops.  It takes a bit of work, but once you get started, believe me, you’ll blitz through it.
As we are working in rounds, we don’t work a row of sc between loop rounds.

Remember to pull each loop tight before you move onto the next loop.  Do not pull it too tight, as you need that sc to work in the next round of loops J

If you’d like a fringe (as against these curly loops) along the border of your cap, then as suggested in the video link, snip through the loops.. and Voila! You have a fringe!

Have fun creating something oh, so cute! .. and I hope the recipient loves it too.
