Marissa's Slouchy

This hat was designed for a beautiful 19 year that is currently battling cancer You can see her Blog right HERE 

If you like this design PLEASE consider making one for something you or someone you know who is fighting cancer, take it to a hospital or donate one to a charity like Knots of Love




Supplies :

* if you are making one to donate USE SOFT yarn some charities and hospitals only except certain yarn brands so check first! The reason for this is people going through Chemo have very sensitive skin and you can make the most beautiful hat but its of no use if it hurts them! 2  Brands I use are ( not all charities except) Redheart soft ( NEVER EVER use supersavor) and Caron's simply soft ( most charities love this one)

size J hook or I hook

make a magic circle or chain 3 and join
*I worked this hat in the round and used a stitch marker to join

Round 1 - chain 3, 11 dc
Round 2- 1dc,1FPdc, repeat so there are 12 dcs and 12 FPdcs
Round 3- 2dc, 1 FPdc, repeat 11times * All FPdc should line up in every round,
Round 4- 3dc, 1 FPdc, repeat 11 times
Round 5- 3dc, 1 FPdc, repeat 11 times
Repeat round 5 until you have the length you want minus 1 inch
for a little bit of slouchy do a total of 15 rows

* if you hat seem a tad to loose add a few decreases in the first row of the single crochets *
Once you have the length you want skip one stich and sl
Last Round Crochet this tight or go down a hook size  ( repeat until it measures an inch about 3-5 rounds depending on gauge yarn and hook size)
Sc in back loop of each stitch .

Add a flower or leave as is.


Here is a variation of the hat I did! Sorry no pattern at this time for the variation ( its a tad complex and when I figure out how to write it so it's easier to understand I will post it, but have fun with the post stitches and don't forget to share your creations with the Crochet Chiq Facebook FANPAGE

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

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

Christmas spirit Scarf, This yarn and scarf makes me think of the holidays!

This scarf make me want to go out and sing carol with sipping warm apple cider! make it in other colors for other looks! It the white variation it looks sweet and delicate! What color will you make it in?

This is a cute lacy scarf which is extremely quick and easy to make!
I started with a foundation dc here are the instructions in case you need them http://crochetchiq.blogspot.com/2012/07/how-to-crochet-foundation-double.html


 Row 1 - Start with a foundation Dc row of 13 ( if you would like a wider scarf just keep the number odd and you can add as many as you like)

Row 2-turn ch2, 1dc in the first dc, skip 1, 2dc in the next, skip 1, 2 dc in the next,skip 1, 2dc in the next, skip 1 2dc in the next, skip 1, 2dc in the next, skip 1, 2 dc in the last dc of the row

Row 3 until the the last row- turn ch 2, 1 dc in the first, *skip 1, 2dc in the next* repeat until the end of the row.
I added fringe, but this also looks great with a ch3 sl border
