Hat Crochet Patterns

Aug 17, 2007
Hats are a common these days for people young and old. Some wear them to keep the hair from flying but many just want to protect their heads from the sun and rain. Many people use them in cold climates as the thickness of the yarn warms their head.

Hats can be worn year round. Manufacturers who sell them certainly make them available in all sizes and the yarn used is dependent on the climate. If a person knows how to stitch, then they can get some good ideas from stores, magazines and internet to make crochet hats and possibly add some modifications in the pattern at a later date.

Before fashion designers launch their collections into the market, a fashion show is typically done. By catching the show on television, a person can also get some good ideas to incorporate into one's stitching skill. There are also some instructional shows on TV that teach beginners and those that have experience on what is the "in thing." Friends who love to stitch can give some advice on the design to follow and make.

The fashion world follows the four seasons. Crochet patterns for hats are very dependent on these seasons. During the first part of the year before the snow has melted, patterns for the hat tend to have a lighter color shade. Small stitches of a darker color can also be used in it to blend. Other things that can be added are lines or stripes at the top of the hat or along the sides.

The arrival of spring enables the crocheter to still make hats with light colors. Putting birds and butterflies in the center of the hat or in the sides will really the hat look good. Others would like different shapes which is perfectly safe as long as the general color is in with the season.

Light colors change to dark ones with the coming of fall. Hats come out in colors such as dark blue or navy, black, violet, gray - just to name a few. With the leaves beginning to fall, putting some art work about nature will still be able to give it a nice touch.

There is so much that a person can do with winter on the way. Hats can still be dark but touches of red and black can also be added. Christmas trees in green, snowflakes in white are a good combination during this time as they will really bring out the holiday spirit. Some people who don't live in cold climates still prefer to wear hats with crochet patterns.

The proper equipment for stitching crochet patterns in hats are very easy to obtain. A person can pretty much buy it and then begin work at once. There are many ways that crochet patterns can be done and with practice, the person will be able to make a crochet hat without the help of an instructional video or book. Just remember, there are hats for just about every occasion.
