In this week I will share with you a new toddler hat pattern. This beanie was my first kid project and I loved it.
But firstly I have to explain the crochet stitch, I have used. I was just twirling my hook with the yarn and this stitch has turned out. I was browsing on the internet for it, but didn't find. So I named it to X-stitch (X-st).
Note: If you know its official name, please, let me to know!
It is basically a combination of two basic type of stitches: it includes two double crochet stitches (dc) and a half puff stitch. Really easy to hook and so puffy :)
I am trying to explain you. As well as I am not too good in explanation, I show it also in pictures.
It is a little bit different than the others, because here the X-stitch is actually not the same, it is not a crossed stitch.
The first stitch
Ch6 and join to a ring.
1. chain 3
2. 1 dc
3. make a half puff stitch:
yarn over, insert hook in the ring, yarn over, insert hook in the ring again (4 loops on hook), pull through and bring yarn up to height of rest of stitches
1. 2 dc
2. a half puff stitch
In the further rows
0. chain 3 and turn (just by the first stitch in the row)
1. make 2 dc into the same stitch (in the first stitch just 1 hdc)
2. acrossed the dc's make a half puff stitch into the stitch below:
yarn over, insert hook in the previous stitch, yarn over, insert hook in the previous stitch (4 loops on hook), pull through and bring yarn up to height of rest of stitches
Please, leave me a comment if I was understandable. Thank you :)
I made a video about the stitch (it is not the start, but I hope it helps you)
