started! To begin our hat, I’m using a J hook which
is a size 10, 6mm, and I’m using a medium weight yarn. Here I’m going to begin with
a magic circle. If you’re not comfortable with using a magic circle you can also do
4 chains and then slip stitch into the first chain, and then work your first round inside
of the circle. But here I’m going to start with a magic loop,
and I’m going to go ahead and chain 3, 1, 2, 3 and this is going to count as my first
double crochet. But now here I’m going to do 8 more double crochets. So, here’s 1, .. fast
motion, Ok, here I have my 8 so let me count here, I should have 9 total including the
this third chains, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 and going to pull this shut my circle nice
and tight and then I’m going to go ahead and slip stitch into the third chain.
1, 2, 3, just right there, and now my second round I’m going to do an increase in each
stitch… so here I’m going to chain 3, 1, 2, 3 and and in that same stitch.. let me
get closer you can see what I’m doing better, in that same stitch I’m going to do a double
crochet.. so I’m going to be doing a double crochet in every stitch and I shall have 18
stitches. so here, the next stitch I’m going to do 2 double crochets.
Ok, I finished my last increase so here I should have 18 including this 3 chain, so
I’m going into 1, 2, 3 I’m going to slip stitch into that third chain and now here I’m going
to go up and I’m going to chain 3. 1, 2, 3 so here in this round we’re going to do increases
in every stitch including this three chains, but we’re going to be working alternating
between front posts double crochet and back post double crochet. so here after I do this
here, I’m going to yarn over and I’m going to go in here and I’m going to do a double
crochet in the front post, just like this… so now we’ll have that chain 3 and the double
crochet, oops, I split the yarn let me do that again because I don’t like the way that
looks. so here I’ve done my chain 3 to go up, and
then I’m going to yarn over into the front post (my third chain) and i’m going to do
two double crochets in the front post. so, it’s two front post double crochets. and now
in my next stitch I’m going to do two stitches as well, another increase but I’m going to
go in the back post, so here I’m going to yarn over I’m going to come thru the back
you can see here, that it’s coming thru the back I’m going to pull out my yarn and then
I’m going to finish my double crochet just the same but it’s coming from behind. It’s
the back post. so now here I’m going to be alternating so now the next will be two double
crochets in the front post… so here’s my next stitch here. 2 double crochets in the
front post. and then the next one will be two double crochets in the back post. So go
ahead and do that all the way around. ok, here I’m coming to the end of my last
increase for the back post and now here I’m going to slip stitch into the third chain
to go up. Remember that third chain counts as a double crochet . So here we were going
front, back, front back.. alternating all the way around. so now here for my next round
I”m going to go ahead and I’m going to chain three, 1, 2, 3 and now here I”m going to
an increase in each of the second stitch of my front post. so here I’m just going to do
a front post double crochet into the first front post double crochet, and then in one
here, I’m going to do an increase.. so now I’ll have three front post double crochets,
then three back posts double crochet all the way around. so here I’m going to do an increase
so this second stitch will have 2 front post double crochets ok.. so now here I have three
front posts double crochets.. so now in this one in my back posts I’m going to go back
into that first stitch and do 1 back post double crochet in the first stitch and then
in the next back post I”m going to do an increase. so here I’ll have two back post double crochets
in that one. so we’re just increasing by one more stitch in each cluster on this round.
so now it’s getting a little wider. Now, here in my front posts I’m going to repeat the
same thing I did here.. so here is one front post double crochet in the next one I’m going
to do an increase. so I’ll do two front post double crochet. and then I want you to repeat
the same thing all the way around. so here you would have one back post double crochet,
in the second back post you’ll back two back post double crochet. all the way around. I’m
going to go ahead and finish and we’ll come back and work on the next round.
Okay so I’m reaching the round.. so now here in round 6, we’re going to slip stitch here
to the third chain to connect, and now here I’m going to go chain 3 to go up. 1, 2, 3,
and now here in my first two stitches I’m going to do, if it’s a front post then I do
a front post and then if it’s a back post I do a back post. but on the third stitch
I do an increase. so here I’m going to do one front post double
crochet in each of the first two stitches 1, and then 2, and then on third stitch I
will do an increase because I want to get to four stitches in every one of my little
clusters. so here now, I have four front posts and then now here I want to increase these
three back posts to four back posts. the first two I’m going to do one back post
double crochet, so here is 1, let me get some more yarn, and in the second one .. 2, sorry
I think the air conditioner just kicked on. and then in the third one..the last one here
I’m going to do two back post double crochet. I’m going to do an increase. So we’re bringing
out stitch count from three to four. so now you see that it’s starting to get bigger.
that little stitch, I don’t know if you can see it or really tell here because it’s not
3D. So now here I want you to once again one front post in the first two stitches, 1, and
then 2, and then here you do an increase. I’m going to repeat that all the way around..
Ok, so I just finished my my round, I’m sorry I apologize this is row 5, I think I said
it was row 6. So now we’re going to start row 6.. so now in the third chain, 1, 2, 3,
I’m going to slip stitch So now here you can see that each of our groupings here are have
4 stitches. 1, 2, 3, 4 for the front posts and then 4 in the back, 4 in the front, 4
in the back, etc. all the way around. so here we are going to start our first of the basket
weave because we want to make that pattern that kind of criss cross. SO for row number
six we’re going to do our first little switch-a-roo, so I’m going to chain 3 to go up, 1, 2, 3,
and now in this row 6 wherever you see a front post double crochet you will reverse it, we’re
going to work a back post double crochet, so you will work a back post in each front
post and a front post in each back post because we want to twist that stitch, to make that
basket weave look. So here I’m going to yarn over I’m going to go thru the back because
if this is a front post on row 6 I’m going to do the opposite, so here I’m going to go
ahead and do a back post double crochet, and there are no increases. so now here on my
next one, same thing, back post double crochet, so now you’re going to see that little line
right there… and then the third one the same thing. and then this is the fourth one.
so now you can see here, let me finish this, I’m going to show you, you can see that these
were front posts and now I turned them into back posts. Now these back ones I’m going
to do the opposite.. I’m going to do those to the front. so you’re just going to do the
opposite if you find a back post, you work it to the front, if you find a front post
you work in the back. so here these back posts i’m going to yarn over and come in thru the
front this time. and i’m going to repeat that all the way around. so my back posts I’m going
to work to the front, and my front posts I’m going to work to the back.
all the way around. Ok, so now you can see that it’s going to
start changing now. Ok, now I wanted to put this on the table
so you can see that it’s not flat. so don’t get worry if it’s a little bit wavy. it’s
starting to get bigger. So now here for three rounds for rounds 7 – 9 I’m going to go ahead
and slip stitch into that third chain, and then I’m going to chain 3, to go up, 1, 2,3
so now for three rounds If you find like a stitch that is a back post you will work a
back post, if it’s a front post you will work a front post. so basically you’re going to
be following what you have here. so here there are no increases. so here all of these are
in the back, so I know that here I’m going to continue working these in the back for
the next four stitches, and then the next four stitches after that are for the front.
so we’re just going to keep following that pattern.. so here if it’s a back post you
do a back post, if it’s a front you do the front. let me just show you.. so you’re going
to this for three rounds, ok. when you get to the end you slip stitch into the third
chain, and then chain 3 and go up… so now these are here in the front so these will
be worked in the front posts so we’re following the same thing. that we did here. I hope you
understand what I’m trying to say. I’m coming to the back posts so these would all be done
in back posts. then these in the front, and all the way around. I’m going to work three
rounds like this and then we’ll come back and work on the 4th round together.
Ok, I did my three rounds and I tried it on but I think it’s a coming out a little big,
so the J hook might be have been a little bit big.. this is probably a be perfect for
a man’s size. I’m going to put a disclaimer at the beginning you might try a different
hook. So here, I did my three rounds, so here I’m
going to go ahead and slip stitch into the third chain, now I’m going to chain 3. 1,
2, 3 and now for this round 10.. where I see a back post I’m going to work a front post..
wherever I see a front post I’m going to work a back post because I’m trying to switch..
this is my first of squares here.. well it’s here my first set and my second set and I’m
going to do two more sets. Repeat rows 6 – 9. for two more times.
I finished my last round and i can cut my yarn. I can fasten it off.. and now all I
need to do is sew in my tails. You can try your hat on now, you can see the basketweave
on here. If you want it a little bit longer you can add another set.. just repeat the
four rows again, rows 6 – 9 once again. but here you can see the different basket
weave pattern. Let me show you what it looks like on the mannequin.
Ok, the hat is ready and all I need to do is now is sew in the tail. I hope you enjoyed
this video tutorial, please subscribe if you haven’t already done so that way you don’t
miss any new videos, and hit the notification button that is right next to the subscribe
button it’s a little bell that way you get notified whenever when I put up a new video.
The hat is a little larger than I thought it was going to come out.. but if you have
a lot of hair that will be fine. For the size J I think it’s a little bit large maybe for
a man, for a different one and I’m going to ahead and move down to an I hook, and for
children I would probably use either, for young kids maybe a G hook, or an H hook. So,
anyway I hoped you enjoyed it, please share with your friends and family. Have a great
day and remember always that “God loves you.” THanks for watching.
