Slideshow of 50 hats E2 boxed up today

Here are pictures of the fifty hats I boxed up today. I'll mail them tomorrow.

Please ignore any extra "stuff" on the table (magazines, notes, the box the hats are going in, the price sticker from the Styrofoam head...).

Some of the pictures are duplicates, and a number could use some notes. Perhaps I'll touch it all up later. No promises.

If you're on a mobile device that won't support the slide-show, you can see the whole album and click the photos at your leisure.

If, for some reason, that link to the album doesn't work, here's some HTML that's supposed to be spiffy:
E2 Hats boxed 14 Oct 2013

Update - 10/16 - Fifty hats mailed on Tuesday, 10/15. I've put comments on every photo in the album. The PO said that photographing and blogging the hats would be sufficient proof as to the value of the contents of the box should the box get lost or destroyed. That's not happened yet, but I'd be devastated if it were to happen. The box is insured. One can only get the value of the yarn back via insurance, in a worst case scenario. But that would be better than nothing. The labor time can never be insured.

Crochet Basic Roll-Brimmed Hat

From 310 Hats

Worsted weight yarn
I hook (5 mm)

  • Chain 2
  • 6 sc in 2nd chain from hook. Place marker in last stitch.
  • 2 sc in each sc (12). Move marker.
  • (1 sc in first stitch, 2 sc in next stitch), repeat around (18 sc). Move marker.
  • (2 sc in each of first 2 sts, 2 sc in next stitch), repeat around (24 sc). Move marker.
  • (3 sc in ea of first 3 sts, 2 sc in next stitch), repeat around (30 sc). Move marker.
  • Continue in this manner for 13 or 14 rounds (increasing the number of scs before the increase by 1 each round) until your radius is about 3", diameter about 6", and circumference about 18". (78 scs or 84 scs). This should make a nice flat disc, which is the hat top.
  • Work even without increasing. It will start making a bowl shape. Continue even until the depth is about 6". It needs to be long enough and and big enough around to cover a Kindergarten-age child's head and ears.
  • To create a rolled brim, increase the stitches by 50%: (1 sc, 2 sc in next stitch) repeat around.
  • Work a few rounds even.
  • Slip stitch around to give a nice tight, neat edge.
  • Cut yarn. Work in ends.
  • If the hat is too "airy", you can weave colored yarns through the stitch spaces. Colored yarns will be very decorative.
