Very Vivid hat



This is the easiest and quickest hat ever. I left the tail unwoven for the photo, to show you that I used almost every inch of the skein of yarn.

This used one ball of Red Heart Vivid in Powerful Pink (50 yards/45 metres) and a 15mm crochet hook.


I started with a magic loop, ch2, 9hdc into circle, ss into first hdc (9 sts)

Rnd 2: ch2, 1hdc into same st, 2hdc into each st around, join to top of chain with ss (18)

Rnd 3: ch2, 1hdc into same st, 1hdc into next st, (2hdc into next st, 1 hdc into next st) around, join to top of chain with ss (27)

diameter at this point was 7.5″

Rnds 4 – 8: ch2, 1hdc into each st around

fasten off


I would have liked to add some sort of embellishment but I ran out of yarn. I only have one ball of each colour.

Outside circumference is 23″ but it is deceptively snug because of the super-bulkiness of the yarn.

Abbreviations used:


hdc……American half double crochet
