to be using a medium weight yarn. This is just a camo color I had and I’m going
to be using an I hook / 5.5 mm you can use a size J if your head is a little bigger. If you’re doing this for a child you can move
down to an H size hook 5mm. I’m going to just need some little scissors
to clip with no stitch markers needed today. So here I’m going to leave a little tail so
it will be easier to weave that in at the end. Let’s begin with a slip loop. I’m working from the top to the bottom. You can also work from the bottom to the top
but I prefer it this way. I’m going to begin with 24 chains. You want to have your little loop loose enough
where you can move your hook. I’m going to wrap my yarn and pull it thru
that makes one chain. There’s 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11,
12 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 23, 24 Now it might look kind of big but don’t worry
because you can use a drawstring at the end if this is too big. Now what I want you to do here WITHOUT twisting
your chain.. I just grab my yarn this way, go like this
and then I stick my hook in there. The first chain. ok, I did this earlier and I grabbed the wrong
yarn, so make sure it’s the yarn coming from the skein or the ball not the tail. Then I pulled it thru just like that and now
that’s my tail there. I’m sorry the little tail is kind of getting
in the way. So here now I’m going to go 1, 2, 3.. 1, 2, 3, this counts as my first double crochet. Now here I’m going to work a double crochet
in my next chain and in every chain across. You’ll have 25 stitches including these 3
chains. So yarn over and go ahead make one double
crochet in every stitch around. Just like this. So, this is what it’s looking like… you’re
going to do that in every chain all the way around your circle. Ok, here I’ve done one double crochet in every
chain so I have 24 stitches. Here now to close my little circle I’m going
to slip stitch into the third chain. 1, 2, 3 and I should mention that now wearing
my glasses I’m going to grab them here I don’t it doesn’t seem like that much but sometimes
I have trouble seeing there.. so let me grab my little fancy pink glasses. Now
I’m going to go up to my second round here and do 3 chains,
remember those chains count as first double crochet so I’m going to go into that same
space and do a second double crochet there because in this round I want to have two double
crochets in every stitch for a total of 48 double crochets. So here my next one I’m going to do an increase
in that one too, so 1, 2 so now this would count as four double crochets. The 3 chains count, 1, 2, 3, 4 and I want
you to repeat that all the way around. Two double crochets in every stitch. I’m going to go ahead and do that and come
back and we’ll work on our third round together, just like that, an increase in every stitch. Ok, I’ve finished my all my stitches two in
every double crochet so total of 48 stitches. Now here I’m going to go ahead and slip stitch
into the third chain to close that second round. See this is the hole where your pony tail
or bun is going to come out thru. If this is big enough for all your hair, then
no problem. I like to do a little drawstring and then
close it because that way it can accomodate different amounts of hair, Remember this will
stretch so it can have really big pony tail. So, now I’m going to chain 3. 1, 2, 3 this counts as my first double crochet. I’m going to do a double crochet in each of
the next four so that I can have a total of 5 double crochets, So here is 1, 2, 3, 4,
and 5. Let me get more yarn. So here you’re going to have repeat the pattern. 1 double crochet in each of the first 5 and
then on the 6th stitch you do an increase. So here on the number 6 stitch I’m going to
do 2 double crochets. I’m going to repeat that pattern all the way
around. So here now the next 5 stitches double crochets
I’m going to do one double crochet and then on the sixth one I’m going to do an increase,
meaning two double crochets in that stitch. When I come to the end I’m going to slip stitch
into the third chain. So go ahead and do that and then we’ll come
back and I’ll give you the instructions for the remainder of the regular rows. Ok, so now here I’ve finished doing all of
my increases. You should have 56 stitches all the way around. This is our third rounds, so here is 1, 2,
3 I said rows.. rounds, I’ve been working on several projects and sometimes I get confused. So this is kind of like a row but it’s turned
into a round because we joined here. So now what we’re going to do here is that
right here I want you to go ahead and slip stitch into the third chain like we’ve done. Now for remainder of our rounds we’re not
going to have anymore increases. You’re going to chain 3, 1, 2, 3 and now you’re
just going to one double crochet in every stitch all the way around no more increases. When you get to the end then once again you’re
going to slip stitch into the third chain and go up to your next round. Now here we’re in the third round. We’re going to do one double crochet in every
stitch all the way around until we have our 10 rounds. So here I’m going to go ahead and do that
and then you can come back and we’re work on the brim. If you want to just have a plain edge just
like this you can do two more rounds and then you’ll be done for a total of 12 rounds. I’m going to show you how to do little brim
that kind of looks like rib. A mock rib stitch with a front post double
crochet and a back post double crochet to give it some shape. So I’m going to go ahead and finish all my
10 rounds. Make sure I have 10 rounds so here I have
1, 2, 3, 4 so I have this round and 6 more rounds to go. Ok, so here I finished my 10 rounds. 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10
now here I’m going to go ahead and slip stitch into the third chain and now for the next
two rounds. You can do three rounds if you wanted a thicker
brim or if your head is a little larger. I’m going to go ahead and work a mock ribbing
effect by doing front post double crochet and back post double crochet. I’m going to chain 3. 1, 2, 3 this one will just remain that way,
remember that those 3 chains counts as a double crochet. So here I’m going to start by going into the
front post double crochet. When you see this abbreviated on patterns
it’s usually abbreviated fpdc so I’m going to yarn over like I normally would but I’m
going to go thru the front here not on top of the chain.. here pull up you’ll have 3
loops on your hook. pull thru the first 2 and then the next 2. that will be the front post the next one I’m
going to go thru the back. So I’m going to yarn over but now I’m going
to bring it in thru the back, right there and grab my yarn and pull it up.. oops I have
to move my hand. You’re going to do the same thing pull thru
the first two and then the next two. You’re going to continue that all way around. You’re going to do that for two rounds. Front post double crochet (one more time)
then in the back grab your yarn pull out your yarn.. and remember you have that little gear
icon in the lower right hand side of the video that you can slow down this portion. Go thru it again and i’m going to continue
that all the way around. When you go thru your next and last row or
round, excuse me. You’re going to do the front post double crochet
on the ones that have the front and then the ones that are on the back you’re going to
go in the back. So you’re going to repeat that. There will be two rows of this will give you
a nice little brim. So I’m going to go ahead and finish that all
the way up. There is also some videos on my channel on
how to do the front post double crochet and the back post double crochet if you want even
more instruction. Grab it go to the back.. if you need to move
your hand forward this way you can do it this way so you can move your piece up and you
can see there.. grab your yarn. Once you have more practice you’ll be able
to do it quickly. So I’m going to go ahead and finish these
last two rows when I get here of course I’m going to slip stitch into the third chain. do my 3 chains and do my front, back, front
back double crochet posts. I’m going to finish 2 more rows to give me
that brim. Ok, I finished doing my two rows here I know
it kind of hard to tell with this hat because of the yarn you know that is varieated but
you two rows of ribbing and then you have your opening here. Now if you don’t have quite enough hair..like
if you want to make this tighter around your pony tail, what I did here was I made a chain
of 75 chains here and I made a little drawstring with 75 chains. Here at the end I’m just going to make another
little knot. I already had one there and that kind of went
over there and I’m going to cut that there. The same thing here, let me get closer so
you can see. Just kinda make a knot over the first,.. kinda
half of the first chain there. like that. I already had one other knot there .. then
you cut it. You can put a little bit of freychek if you
like. When you put on your messy bun hat. You’re going to have your opening here and
you pull out your hair thru there or your bun.. then you can pull the drawstring tight
around your bun and you can make a little bow like that. If you don’t want to do it with crochet you
can also use a little ribbon like a silk ribbon. Hmm, you can also use something like this..
this is of course a different color. But you could use a ribbon and I just put
it in and out every two stitches. That is my hat. This is the easiest way I found to them because
it’s just kinda of like all very similar to my other hats. I hope you enjoyed this video tutorial please
