yarn wrap the yarn over pull it through this is what we have through 23 rounds
you can leave the cap like this or you can add an ear flap this will show how
to add an ear flap I have attached a slip knot to my crochet hook I am going
to skip over the half double crochet the front post double crochet the half
double crochet skip the front post double crochet skip the half double
crochet attach the yarn right through the top of the front post double crochet we have two segments here we have
skipped over theirs half double crochet on each side this will be the back
section I’m working a chain one now I’m going to work one front post double
crochet in each of the next four stitches the chain one did not count as
a stitch it is the step up work a half double crochet in each of
the next two stitches one to work a front post double crochet in each of the
next four stitches one two three for work a half double crochet in
each of the next two stitches one to work a front post double crochet in each
of the next four stitches one to three for this completes the first row we are
going to turn we will work a chain one this time we are going to work back post
double crochet and we are working from the back side around to the front to the
back and then complete the double crochet and put your hook from the back
to the front to the back and this will be in each of the four stitches you work a half double crochet in each of
the next two stitches one to work one back post double crochet in each of the
next four stitches and I’m putting my hook from the back around to the front
to the back and it’s the same thing as the front post only we’re working from
the back now we will work the two half double
crochet one two now we’re to the final segment of the four back post double
crochet one two and going from the back to the front to the back three and for
this last one I’d like to go through the stitch but keeping my threads pushed to
the front this is to keep the stitch in place now we will turn and you can see
how the back post double crochet now look just like the front post double
crochet this is the last row we completed which is row two
it was a row of back post double crochet and they all look the same
then we’ll chain one working for front post double crochet and the stitches on
the side I kind of like to go through the stitches and this is to hold it in
place so it does not slide around one working front post double crochet two three for work an individual half double
crochet in each stitch one to work an individual front post double crochet in
each stitch one two three for one half double crochet in each of
the next two stitches now we’re working the final four front post double crochet I’m working the last stitch just working
right between the threads that completes Row three and will turn row 4 will be
the back post double crochet this time I’m going to work through the stitch
like that that just keeps it in place you can do it however you want to that’s
just something I like to do one two three for work one half double crochet in each of
the next two stitches one two now work one back post double crochet in each of
the next four stitches one two three for
work one half double crochet in each of the next two stitches one two work one
back post double crochet in each of the next four stitches one two three I’m working the last stitch which is
number four and then we flip it around we have completed four rows continue
working front post and back post double crochet through row nine I have
completed the ninth row of stitches ending on the front and flipping it
around row ten will be one single crochet in the first stitch then a
single crochet decrease one single crochet in the next stitch and then a
single crochet decrease and that’s putting your hook through the top of the
stitch wrap the yarn over pull it through leave the two loops on the hook
put your hook through the next stitch wrap the yarn over pull it through there
are three loops on the hook wrap the yarn over pull through all three loops
and I’m going to continue across working one single crochet and then a single
crochet decrease one single crochet and then a single crochet decrease and we do
not have to be exact with numbers at this point one single crochet a single
crochet decrease and then we’ll end with one single
crochet on the end and so if you end with a decrease that’s okay it’s still
going to work we’re going to wrap the yarn over pull it through and I’m
pulling through a little bit of an extra length and then cut the yarn pull it
through give it a tug I have threaded my needle with the tail and I am going to
weave it between the stitches on the end like this and I’m pulling it weaving the
needle between the stitches and you can see how I’ve picked them up I’ll show
that again leaving the needle between the stitches just like this and then I’m
giving it a tug like that pulling them together I’ve got them all pulled
together like this what I wanted to do is make a knot here at the end like that and I’m going to run it back through
just to make it a little bit more secure like that and then give it another
little tug and then make another knot here at the end like that
now my yarn is right here and I’m going to run my needle through this side and
then pull it over like that and join the two ends together and I want to make
sure it’s nice and secure you know we’re going to make a knot just
like that and I’m going to make another knot you can make as many knots as you’d
like to make that’s probably pretty good and I’m going to go ahead and sew the
tail end on the inside of the cap here working on the inside of the ear flap
just hiding the tail between the stitches like this I like to skip over or go through a
strand of yarn work back in the opposite direction between the stitches then cut off the yarn when the cap is
complete we have two segments of post stitches on the backside we have one two
three four on the front side between the ear flaps and this is what it looks like
and the remaining tails will be sewn in the same way there will be tails at the
beginning and you will want to pull that shut to make sure it’s nice and snug
this is going to show how to make the braid I am working with strands of yarn
they are approximately 40 inches 102 centimeters you can make them as long as
you want to I am working with six strands altogether
I want to fold them in half and the ends will meet at the beginning I’m going to
find a center down here on the ear section and put my crochet hook through
like this and they all may not go through at once so you may have to do
them individually pull the halfway point through and then just pull through one
side like this you will want to even them up and make sure the ends are
matching the ends do not have to be perfect you can cut them off even at a
later time you will divide the strands of yarn into sections of four there’s
the first section there’s the second and this is the third and then we will start
braiding them now I’m down here at the end what I’m
going to do is make a knot and I’m just holding the ends over and putting them
through like this and then making a knot like that then pulling it snug and then you can cut all the ends off
even some of mine aren’t even but that’s alright just like that you

  • Jayne's hat is 3 different colors and it isn't cabled.

  • Are rounds 4,5,6 just 18 single crochet around?

  • Whoops I get it now. Lol
    Thank you so very much for the tutorial!!!

  • Hi 😊
    At round 11, I need to make this hat for a big and tall man, so at that point would I need to work another increase row? Or simply use a bigger hook?
