  • 00:32: to need more than one so you're going to be using the 5 millimeter hook to make the brim of the Hat and I'm going to be doing the biggest size hat which fits on males and women but if it's too big for a woman then you can decrease it by two stitches because you know by two stitches you know it could be 4 6 8 doesn't matter it just has to be in twos so to start this off don't I get my 5
  • 01:02: millimeter hook and I'm going to chain 70 and when you get your 70 done I'll see you back here when you get your 70 chains or how many that you're working with well my side I'm going to have a pattern about this stitch and it's going to tell you what size you need to make for a child or toddler or baby so you may want to check that out so anyway making sure
  • 01:34: that your chain is all facing the right direction you want to go into the first chain I'm only going to be using the top stitch of my chain the bottom two I'm leaving alone so single crochet into that first stitch single crochet into the second stitch then I'm going to go ahead and get my marker and I'm going to put it in that first stitch just so I know where my beginning

  • 02:36: butterfly stitch what you do is you go in through the next stitch pull up a loop go through one of the loops then you go through the next stitch pull up a loop three loops on your hook go through to go through to essentially you double crochet and then you chain one go in through the next you essentially chain
  • 03:06: one using half the stitch then you go in through the next and you double crochet then you chain one always make sure you chain one after if not then you would be decreasing so go through the next stitch pull through one loop go through the next stitch three loops on the hook go through to go through two then chain one and that completes your butterfly stitch
  • 03:37: we'll continue to do that all the way around until you get back to the beginning okay it come to my last stitch of my round and in the stitch you just go in this is your first stitch that you made this was your single crochet and then this was your first butterfly stitch and by doing that stitch you created a this long stitch here and that's the stitch you want to slip
  • 04:08: stitch into and then from here you're going to be doing the same thing except you're going to be using the wings of the butterfly you'll go in - no need to chain I don't chain at the beginning I just go in through the front the first wing chain one then I go in through the next wing and then I do money double crochet then you chain one and just like in this
  • 04:43: previous round this is going to be the stitch that you slip stitch into at the end of the round and you'll just continue to do the stitch for if you're going to to make an adult-sized it's going to be - 25 centimeters but if you're making a smaller hat I'm going to have all this on my web page and I'll have a link to my web page in the description of this video and you can see all the sizes and in inches and
  • 05:14: centimeters and it'll have all the information there for you again I want to show you how to do the butterfly stitch using the butterflies go into the first wing we chain one and then you complete the stitch by going in through the other wing do a double crochet chain one and then just continue to do it and every round to slip stitch at the beginning and continue on and I'm going to be doing this until it reaches 25
  • 05:45: centimeters and I believe that 17 inches and not ten percent but um you can always easily find out and I can check it out and when I come back I'll tell you in inches as well okay real quick I looked it up 25 centimeters and inches is 9.8 so it'll be 10 inches so when you get this ten inches then I'll come back and I'll show you how to close off your hat I wanted to show you I forgot there's something different about round
  • 06:18: two of doing the butterfly stitch then first round you want to do the last stitch of the round this is the place that you slip stitch and at the end of the round and it creates a hole here see this is the stitch you want to slip stitch into but you want to do the last butterfly stitch using this little hole here so you'll go in through this first hole and do the first part of the stitch and then you
  • 06:49: want to go into this little hole here pull up a loop and finish the stitch with that one you chain one and then you slip stitch into that beginning stitch and you'll do that for every round every end of the round can't just got done with my 25 centimeters or 10 inches so now I will show you how to finish the Hat once you get to the end of the row
  • 07:22: like I did here you want to go ahead and start singer single crocheting in each stitch so go ahead in single crochet each stitch around till you get back to the beginning and I'm going to go ahead and move my marker here from the bottom to
  • 07:52: the top single crochet around this row and I'll see you back here in a minute I just got to the end of my row and now for this next round I want you to go through each do a decrease stitch and then do a single crochet then do a

  • 12:45: just to make sure that my hole isn't going to come out I liked also actually tie a few knots into my hat what I do is I'll just pull and just use the slope to just tie knot or two in there because you really don't
