Crochet Tutorial: Beast Hat

Standard

In keeping with my costume theme that began with my Enchanted Rose Cape, I have finished designing Part 2: The Beast Hat. From the outside, he may appear menacing, but underneath is a heart of gold. He’s my perfect beast!

This beast hat encapsulates the fierce persona that one would like to portray in this costume. If you are looking to do the Beast from Beauty and the Beast, this particular hat is just the right way to achieve that!

Beyond the Beast, this hat has a lot of versatility! You can remove the horns, change the colors, change the ears to create your own adult hat in various animals such as a bear, a skunk, a panda, or the like. This is a very warm and heavy hat perfect for those winter days. Enjoy this tutorial and written pattern!

Crochet Tutorial: Hometown Honey Sunhat

Standard

For the first time, I tried my hand at crocheting with raffia yarn. It was definitely an interesting experience in trying something new. I made this floppy brim Hometown Honey Sunhat! Just in time to protect yourself from the rays! Whether on the beach or in the garden, this will come in handy!

Working with raffia while creating this hat was interesting. I may have to try again on another project to fully provide a fair opinion of this type of yarn. I ran into a few frustrating challenges, but still managed to achieve a decent result. Some tweaking and blocking this hat pattern will continue to improve its look.

Hometown Honey Sunhat2
When working with Raffia Yarn, always remember, you will have to give your hands a rest from time to time. Depending on the type of Raffia you use in your project, it can be a little rough on the hands.

Hometown Honey Sunhat3
In making this hat, my initial concern was over the hook size because of the pattern it was creating. The yarn looks thick/bulky, but it is actually quite thin when you start working with it. It created a stitch that wasn’t as tight as I expected it to be using my G6 crochet hook. Be aware of that when you start your project. This Raffia yarn is also not as firm as I expected it to be in the final product.

Hometown Honey Sunhat
When I wore the hat, the brim of the hat was very floppy and did not hold a firm shape. I had a feeling that would happen while I was crocheting this in the video tutorial. At that point, I realized I had to do something to acquire the the wide brim look that I was hoping for. I decided to block this piece after I had my dad photograph it.

Below you will see the photo of the hat in the blocking process. I pinned it to a towel and saturated it with water. It will be dry within 24 hours and it should hold a better shape. Upon doing further research, I have learned that you can also starch raffia/straw sunhats by using liquid spray starch or making your own starch with 16 oz. of hot water mixed with a tablespoon of corn starch. You can spray the mixture on your hat. It will not wreck it, and it will give you a more desired shape.

For those of you who want a floppy brim, the original result will give you that. It’s cute no matter what!!

Blocking Hat
