A Chiq Almost Floppy Hat for Grandma- a crochet almost floppy brimmed hat

Hello Everyone!
For mother's day this year I made my grandma floppy hat that wasn't made from cotton but from soft yarn.
If you would like a firmer brim go ahead and use cotton yarn :)

supplies

size F and J hook
4 ply yarn - your choice. _ I used redheart soft yarn



Using size J -make a magic circle and use a yarn marker.
R 1- 10 dc in the ring
R 2- 2 dc in each
R 3- 2dc in the first, 1 dc in the next *repeat pattern (2,1)*
R 4-2 dc in the first, 1 dc in the next 3 * repeat pattern (2,1,1,1)
R 5-11 1 dc in each (silp stitch at end of round for a clean seamless color change, I didn't however and just put the Loopy flower over it)
with Black
R 12 - 1 hdc in each stitch
R 13 - 1 dc in each stitch
 With White
R 14 - 1 front post dc around each black dc
R 15 - work 1 front post DC and one dc in each stitch.. [ we do this to increase the brim diameter, for a larger brim repeat this round only do this pattern ( 1 front post dc , 1 dc, 1 front post dc, 1 front post dc, 1 dc)]
R 16 - 1 dc in each
With Black
R 17 - 1 hdc in each
R 18 -chain 3 slip stitch in each stitch
R 19 - chain 3 and slip stitch in each chain 3, fasten off eave in ends


Create a loopy flower in black and attach :)
Loopy flower written directions

Cross Bangle

I wanted to crochet a sideways cross bracelet for some time now but it wasn't until I received this lovely STARDUST( by Red Heart yarn ) that I actually sat down to make it!  This project will fly by you will want to make one for everyone at church :)


Stardust - any color you like I used #1303 Brown * this requires very little yarn, so make a lot!*
E crochet hook

Skill - Advanced Beginner
(* HINT this is basically a vertical row or a shell*)
First stitch***
Ch3, hdc 3rd ch from hook, ch1, 2 hdc ( all in the same space)
Every other one***
*turn, slip stitch until you and in the ch1 space, ch2,1hdc,ch1,2hdc* repeat until you have the length desired, * it should stretch slightly to slide on and off your wrist.. **

suggested lengths _
Woman's s/m ~18 shells
l/xl ~20 shells
Mans~ 23 shells
child~ 11-15 ( 11 fits most five year olds)

sew the 2 ends together and weave in your tail at least 4 inches worth so it will not come undone.

***Add the cross part***


attach the yarn to the sid…

Thread Cross Bookmark

I used Aunt Lydia's Crochet thread and a size D hook.

Make a magic circle

Round 1
Ch3, 2dc, ch2, 3dc, ch2, 3dc, ch2, 3dc, ch2 and join.

Sides and top of cross
Ch3 2dc, ch2, dc3 in any ch2 sp. Turn and *sl to ch2, ch3,2dc, ch2,3dc. *Turn and repeat * repeat everything in this step 3 more times. Cut thread and weave in ends at the ends of the sides.

Bottom of the cross
When you get to the last side repeat the * section 2 more times for a total of 4 shells for the bottom and 2 shells for the sides not including the center.

On the top of the cross attach yarn and chain 26, skip the first 5 and sl to the first chain. Then I added a tassel.
