Juniper Knit-Look Crochet Hat

Sharing is caring!

And the fun with Magical Stitches continues, this time with the Juniper Knit-Look Crochet Hat!

The Juniper Knit-Look Crochet Hat has been in the works for quite some time now and was part of the early inspiration for the Magical Stitches Course. As I was playing with the split single crochet for the Juniper Hat I really saw what the combination of stitches could do.

If you are new to Knit-Look crocheting the Juniper Hat is a great place to start. You will be able to practice the placement of your hook and really see just how special these stitches are.

The Juniper Knit-Look Crochet Hat is a bottom-to-top design, with an easy-to-modify stitch repeat to get the perfect fit each and every time.

If you love the Knit-Look crocheting technique I would recommend taking a look at the Fair-Isle Crochet Hat and the Crochet Knit Purl Hat Pattern.

Notes:

The Juniper Knit-Look Crochet Hat is worked in rounds from bottom-up. First, a single crochet ribbing is worked in rows and joined. Then the bodywork portion of the hat is worked with a 4-stitch repeat. Last, a pompom is placed on top if desired, and then it’s ready to wear.

Since this is worked continuously, a ch 1 at the beginning of the round is not needed. It is helpful to place a stitch marker on the first stitch of each round.

Sizes are written as: Preemie (Newborn, 3-6 Months, 6-12 Months) (12-24 Months, Toddler, Child) (Adult Small, Adult Medium, Adult Large)

Special Stitches:

Split Single Crochet (ssc), also known as the waistcoat stitch: Insert hook between the legs of the stitch (on the back of work the hook should be under the horizontal bar and between the upside-down ‘V’ shape as well), yarn over, pull up a loop to the height of a single crochet, yarn over, pull through both loops on hook. Tip: Keep a loose tension so the stitches are easily worked. https://brianakdesigns.com/split-single-crochet-round-flat/
