Old Blue Jeans is a fun and easy hat to make. By selecting a yarn for the brim with some elastic in it, you can select any sort of yarn for the main hat and not have to worry about stretch issues. Even plant-based yarns that don’t bounce back will work fantastically! Using very simple stitches and an easy to repeat pattern, this hat will work up in just a couple of hours!
This pattern is written in US terminology.
Old Blue Jeans is very versatile and lends itself to semi-solids/solids, long striping, and gradients too.
Techniques and Difficulty
Old Blue Jeans incorporates the following crochet techniques:
- Basic stitches (chain, single crochet, double crochet)
- Intermediate stitches (front post double crochet, a new type of working in the round)
Old Blue Jeans is worked by first making the brim as a flat piece then seaming the two ends to make a tube. Then working in the round you will pick up stitches on one edge and continue the pattern.
You can adjust the length of Old Blue Jeans by adding or subtracting round repeats. You can change the width by adding or subtracting multiples of 2 stitches.
If you would rather use a different weight of yarn, I recommend weights from fingering to worsted in order to keep the stitch definition.
