Quick and Chunky Crochet Hat

Pin It



I've never had the pleasure of using T-shirt yarn before.  I've seen it in the shops of course and all over the Internet, but until there was a sale at my local Lincraft I hadn't really been too tempted to give it a try, but boy I'm glad I did.  I found it really easy to work with and its chunky nature is brilliant for quick projects,  This hat took a couple of hours one afternoon, and is a very simple cluster pattern, with additional rows of double crochet.  One size fits most.


What you will need:
Size 8 Crochet Hook
2 x 100g balls of T-shirt yarn. (One ball got me to half way through the last round of the hat, so you will only need a very small amount of the second ball)


Cluster patterns:

Double cluster:  Work 1 dc into stitch/space as instructed leaving two loops on the hook.  Work second dc in same stitch/space until 3 loops remain on hook, yarn over and draw through 3 loops on hook.

Triple Cluster:  Work 1 dc in stitch/space as instructed leaving two loops on the hook.  Work second dc in same stitch/space leaving 3 loops on hook, work 3rd dc in same stitch/space leaving 4 loops on hook.  Yarn over and draw through 4 loops on hook.
