View Full Version : Crochet Help on Pattern

I found a pattern for a hat that I loved. The hat is a knit ear flap hat. I have been knitting for a few years and decided to make something different. I am making this hat for 4-H and I just got done knitting the hat and found that I had to crochet the bottom of the hat around as the edge of the hat. I don't really know how to do this at all. I have tried to learn but I really can't figure this out. Please help me if you can!

This is what the pattern says to do:
With right side facing and crochet hook, attach yarn at center back; ch 1, sc around lower edge of hat, including earflaps, taking care to keep work flat; join with a slip st in first sc. Fasten off.

I have done a video on my website showing how to crochet a border around a knitted piece. You can view it HERE (http://www.hookedonneedles.com/2008/11/how-to-crochet-border-around-knitted.html). If you need help with basic crochet stitches, you can check out THIS LIST (http://www.hookedonneedles.com/2008/09/library-of-video-tutorials.html) of video tutorials which might have something you could use.

Hope this helps!

That really has helped but I have a few more questions.

How should I go crochet into the stockinette stitching on the right side of my hat? I wonder this because the bottom edge of my hat is curling up and I am curious as to how this will affect the crochet edge.
