Simple Hats

A friend of mine asked me to make two hats for her daughters for Christmas. One of them loves blue and the other loves purple.

These hats are so simple I can't believe it.  You just chain 41, then you turn.  Single crochet in second chain from hook, then all the way across.  Ch 1, then turn.

You do this until you have 90 rows.  Then you sew the two short edges together using the same yarn you crocheted with.  Now you have a tube.

Take a long piece of yarn on a yarn needle, between the 8th and 9th row from the top, beginning by the seam, you weave in and out of the rows until you get to the seam again, then you cinch it tight and tie it off.  Don't cut the ends.  You need to pull them to the inside of the hat and weave them into the crochet.  Then clip off the ends.

I embellished these hats with flowers that I purchased from JoAnn Fabrics, because I wanted them to be removable for laundering purposes.  I also crocheted ribbons from other yarns to decorate the tops of the hats.

I think they turned out pretty well.  What do you think?
