Elegant Toddler Girl Hat

IMG_1038

Well this is long overdue, and I apologize. What more can I say than life is hectic?! We have been busy with renovations, yard clean-up, expanding our farm, and adjusting to life on an acreage in Manitoba. Although it is busy, we absolutely love it here!

Now that colder weather is coming and life it settling down a bit, I have some time for hobbies again. WHOOT WHOOT! And two of these hobbies are, you guessed it, blogging and crocheting. So without further delay, here is the long awaited Elegant Crochet Hat pattern! ( For the Wavy Infinity Scarf pattern shown in the picture, click here .

This pattern is a little more intermediate than the scarf.

To make this hat smaller, I simply use a smaller hook. For a 12-24 month size I use a 5.00 mm hook for the hat and a 4.00 mm hook for the rim.

Toddler Girl Infinty Scarf

  
Making a scarf for my daughter has been on my to-do list for well over a year. Now that fall has arrived, I decided she simply cannot go without a scarf this year! After looking at several photos of toddler scarves and reading through a few patterns, I came up with this one. I am thrilled with how it turned out!

Wavy Infinity Scarf Free Pattern

This pattern is great for beginners.

Wavy Infinity Scarf
Size – Toddler

Hook size – H (5.00mm)

Row 1: Ch 22

Row 2: hdc in third ch from hook, *hdc in next 2 ch, 3 hdc in next ch, hdc in next 2 ch, skip 1 ch, reapeat from * twice, hdc in last ch, ch 2, turn.

Row 3: in back loops only – hdc in same st as ch 2, *skip 1 st, hdc in next 2 sts, 3 hdc in next st, hdc in next 2 sts, skip 1 st, repeat from * twice, hdc in last st, ch 2, turn.

Row 4-112 (or until desired length): repeat row 3.

Using a yarn needle, join the last row to the first row to form a loop.

Fasten off. Weave in all ends.

For alternating colours, this is what I did:
main colour – 6 rows
second colour – 6 rows
main colour – 2 rows
second colour – 2 rows
I followed this pattern 7 times.

You can definitely switch up the colours in whichever order you prefer; have some fun with it!

TIP – if you don’t like weaving in all the ends after changing colours, simply carry them up the side of the scarf. Then go around the edges afterward in sc to make a border.
