Crochet Aviator Hat Pattern



Two of Matthew’s classmates celebrated their birthdays last month. We were informed late and had no time buy gifts. Mommy and I made simple crochet aviator hats.


One of our clients requested if we can make the aviator hat in stripe instead of plain. Tassels were also requested on each ear flaps. Here it is:



Here is the pattern for the aviator hat that will fit a 22-inch head circumference.

Materials:
4-ply worsted acrylic yarn, two contrasting colors.
3.75mm or 4.0mm hooks
Tapestry needles for sewing and weaving
Two buttons.

Pattern:
Make a beanie hat first.
Round 1: Ch4, 10 dc in the first ch. Sl-st to the top of ch4.
Round 2: Ch3, dc in the same st as ch3, 2dc in each st around. Sl-st to the top of ch3.
Round 3:  Ch3, dc in the same st as ch3, *dc in the next st, 2dc into the next st. Repeat * around. Sl-st to the top of ch3.
Round 4:  Ch3, dc in the same st as ch3, *dc in the next 2 sts, 2dc into the next st. Repeat * around. Sl-st to the top of ch3.
Round 5:  Ch3, dc in the same st as ch3, *dc in the next 3 sts, 2dc into the next st. Repeat * around. Sl-st to the top of ch3.
Round 6:  Ch3, dc in the same st as ch3, *dc in the next 4 sts, 2dc into the next st. Repeat * around. Sl-st to the top of ch3.
Round 7:  Ch3, dc in the same st as ch3, *dc in the next 5 sts, 2dc into the next st. Repeat * around. Sl-st to the top of ch3.
Round 8:  Ch3, dc in the same st as ch3, *dc in the next 6 sts, 2dc into the next st. Repeat * around. Sl-st to the top of ch3.
Round 9:  Ch3, dc in the same st as ch3, *dc in the next 7 sts, 2dc into the next st. Repeat * around. Sl-st to the top of ch3.
Round 10:  Ch3, dc in the same st as ch3, *dc in the next 8 sts, 2dc into the next st. Repeat * around. Sl-st to the top of ch3.
Rounds 11-20:  Ch3, dc in each st around. Repeat * around. Sl-st to the top of ch3.
Fasten off after round  15 and weave ends using a tapestry needle.

Note:
You can make larger size by adding more rows before round 11 until you reach the desired head circumference. This means increasing the number of dc in between 2dc's.
Hat height can be increased too by adding several rows after row 20.

For the ear flaps:
Count 10 sts from the end of the last row.
Sl-st the yarn and do ch3, dc on the next 14 sts.
Ch3, turn, dc on the same st and each of the next sts. Repeat this step 5 more times.
Fasten off and weave ends.
Do the earflap on the other side.

For the front flap:
Attach the 2nd color on the front loop on the st next to the earflap.
Ch 3, dc on the front loop until the st next on the earflap on the other side.
Ch 3, dc on the same st and on each of the next sts. Repeat this step 8 more times.
Fasten off and weave ends.

Do edging with the 2nd color using hdc on each of the stitches. Fasten off and weave ends.

Flip the front flap and sew the button into each corner.



Happy Crocheting!

Double Crochet Cluster V-Stitch Tutorial



Here is another crocheting style guide -  Double Crochet Cluster V-stitch. Sounds complicated but honestly, this style is as simple as regular stitches.

Work a chain 8 first.

Chain 8
Yarn over and insert the hook into the 4th chain from the hook, Pull a yarn. That’s 3 loops in the hook.

Yarn over and pull through 2 loops (with 2 loops remain in the hook).


Yarn over, insert the hook into the same space and pull a yarn.
Yarn over and pull through 2 loops (with 3 loops remain in the hook)
Yarn over, insert the hook into the same space and pull a yarn. 
Yarn over and pull through 2 loops (with 4 loops remain in the hook)
Yarn over and pull through all the loops.
Chain 2.
Repeat steps 1-7 by inserting the hook on the same stitsch as the first set of cluster double stitch. You have now the first set of Double Corchet Cluster v-Stitch.



To work on the second set, skip 2 stitches and repeat the steps above.

Two sets of Double Crochet Cluster V-Stitch
Next, I will share a pattern of a scarf that used the Double Crochet Cluster V-stitch
