Gauge

8 squares (ch 3 + 3 dc) = 4 inches

Gauge is very important for this pattern.

To check your gauge, crochet the first 12 rows of the pattern. Measure how many squares you have over 4 inches.

If you have less than 8 squares in 4 inches, your gauge is looser than mine. Try a smaller crochet hook.

If you have more than 8 squares in 4 inches, your gauge is tighter than mine. Try a larger crochet hook.

Pattern Notes

  • Crochet Heart Hat is worked flat using the corner to corner technique.
  • The brim is made separately and then sewn onto the hat.
  • You can choose to follow the pixel graph or the written instructions.
  • Crochet the pixel graph using the corner-to-corner (c2c) technique. Use the traditional method of making a chain 3+ 3 double crochets for each square.
  • Chain 6 to start each new row and chain 3 at the beginning of each square.

Abbreviations

  • dc = double crochet
  • dc2tog = double crochet 2 stitches together
  • sc = single crochet
  • ch = chain
  • ch(s) = chains
  • st = stitch
  • st(s) = stitches
  • rem = remaining
  • blo = back loop only

Explanation of the Corner-to-Corner Method (C2C)

Corner to corner (c2c) crochet is a technique where you crochet “squares” in diagonal rows, starting in one corner (usually the bottom right) and ending in the opposite corner (usually the top left). Each row is increased by one square.

Each square = chain 3 + 3 double crochet

C2C Increases

Increases are made at the end of each row. To make an increase you will chain 6, DC in the 4th chain from your hook and DC in each of the 2 remaining chains.

You will have a chain 3 + 3 DC square. This is your first square for the beginning of the next row. Turn your work and join with a slip stitch to the chain 3 space from the last square made. 

C2C Decreases

The first decreases for both the width and length for each square will create corners.

To make a decrease, when you reach the end of the row, you will turn your work and slip stitch across the 3 DC’s in the last square made. Join with a slip stitch to the chain 3 space and chain 3 + 3 DC. 

Crochet Stitches

Chain (ch)

  1. Start by making a slip knot on your crochet hook
  2. Hold the hook in your right hand (or left hand, if you’re left-handed) and the yarn in your left hand. With the hook, catch the yarn and pull it through the loop on the hook. This creates one chain stitch.
  3. Continue making chain stitches by repeating step 2.

Slip Stitch (sl st)

  1. Insert hook into next stitch.
  2. Yarn over and pull through the stitch and through the loop on your hook. 

Double Crochet (dc)

  1. Yarn over & insert hook in next stitch.
  2. Yarn over and pull up a loop. You will have 3 loops on your hook.
  3. Yarn over and pull through 2 loops. You will have 2 loops on your hook.
  4. Yarn over and pull through remaining 2 loops on your hook.

Double Crochet Decrease (dc2tog)

  1. Yarn over & insert hook in next stitch.
  2. Yarn over and pull up a loop. You will have 3 loops on your hook.
  3. Yarn over and pull through 2 loops. You will have 2 loops on your hook.
  4. Yarn over & insert hook in next stitch.
  5. Yarn over and pull up a loop. You will have 4 loops on your hook.
  6. Yarn over and pull through 2 loops. You will have 3 loops on your hook.
  7. Yarn over and pull through remaining 3 loops on your hook.

Single Crochet (sc)

  1. Insert hook in next stitch.
  2. Yarn over and pull up a loop. You will have 2 loops on your hook.
  3. Yarn over and pull through both loops.

Single Crochet Back Loop Only (sc blo)

  1. Insert hook in next stitch in the back loop only.
  2. Yarn over and pull up a loop. You will have 2 loops on your hook.
  3. Yarn over and pull through both loops.

Cut the yarn between each set of arches.

Use your scrap piece of yarn to tie the pom pom. I recommend you double/triple knot it.

Carefully open the arches.

Use a hot melt adhesive to place a dab of glue in the center of the pom pom. This will help prevent it from unraveling.

Fluff your pom pom and trim any long ends.

Use a tapestry needle to attach your pom pom to the top of your hat.
