Aligned Cobble Stitch Fingerless Gloves Crochet Pattern

These gloves are functionally comfortable; the aligned cobble stitch pattern adds a layer of warmth on those cold winter days without adding too much bulk. I also love that my fingers are free for texting and responding to emails while I’m out and about.

This pattern can be worked in two different sizes, with an option to add additional stitches to customize the fit.

I was feeling brave and decided to make a matching pair for myself and my preteen daughter. I survived with minimal eye-rolls and even got a little smile (she secretly still thinks it’s cool to have matching things).

Elizabeth Stitch Crochet Hat Pattern

| Crochet

The Elizabeth Stitch Crochet Hat Pattern - this free crochet pattern is perfect for kids and adults alike and makes a perfect birthday or Christmas gift.Elizabeth Stitch Crochet Hat Pattern

You may have noticed lately that I’ve really fallen in love with the Elizabeth stitch…maybe it’s because it’s just so easy to crochet. Not only that, it also looks great!

After I created the pattern for the Elizabeth Stitch Fingerless Gloves (which has quickly become one of the top patterns on Dabbles and Babbles), my daughter Noelle ask me if I could make a pair of gloves for her as well as a hat to go with it. I’m always up for a challenge so I decided to give it a try and voila, the Elizabeth Stitch hat was born. 

The hat is almost as easy to make as the gloves, you simply need to crochet a little more for the hat. It’s done in two parts, first the ribbing and then the rest of the hat. Finally, you seam the ends together and join the top.

The final pièce de résistance is the adorable faux fur pom-pom which is all the rage this year. Perfect for kids and adults alike, this hat makes a perfect birthday or Christmas gift.

Elizabeth Stitch Crochet Hat Pattern

NOTES: Pattern in U.S. crochet terminology

SKILL LEVEL: EASY

MATERIALS:

  •        Hook: U.S. 5.0mm
  •        Yarn: Size 4 worsted weight yarn – Caron Simply Soft in White and Lavender Blue
  •        Faux Fur Pom Pom (or regular yarn pom pom)
  •        Darning Needle & Scissors

ABBREVIATIONS:

  • st = stitch
  • ch = chain
  • sl = slip stitch
  • sc = single crochet

NOTES:

This crochet pattern is worked in two sections, the ribbed cuff and then the rest of the hat (purple part of the hat in the photo). To finish it off, the sides are seamed together and the top is cinched together.

Elizabeth Stitch – see video tutorial here

Insert your hook into next stitch, pull up a loop, yarn over, back into the same stitch and pull up another loop, yarn over and pull through all four loops on the hook. ch 1.

 

PATTERN:

Hat Ribbing

Chain 13 stitches. 

Row 1: Starting in the 2nd chain from the hook, sc into each stitch until you reach the end of the row, turn.

Row 2: Ch1, sc into the back loop in each stitch across the row, turn. (see photo below for help finding the back loop).

Row 3 – 89: Repeat the steps in Row 2 (it should end up approx. 20-21” long)

Turn the ribbed cuff portion you’ve completed. You’ll now start crocheting along the long side of the section you just made.

Upper Hat Portion

Row 1: 1 sc into the end of each row from the cuff, turn.

Row 2: Ch3, 1 Elizabeth Stitch (see above for Elizabeth Stitch instructions) in every other stitch across the entire row, turn.

Row 3: Ch3, 1 Elizabeth Stitch in every other stitch across the entire row with the last stitch being worked under the turning chain, turn.

Rows 4 – 20: Repeat the steps in Row 3. If you would like the hat larger, simply add additional rows.

Finishing

Fold two short edges in half and stitch together using the mattress stitch, using the appropriate yarn color for each section. 

Once you’ve seamed up the two edges, get a 24″ piece of yarn the same color as the top of the hat. Using the darning needle with the yarn in it, weave the yarn in and out of the top edge of the hat all the way around (every few stitches) until you’re around the entire top. Cinch the two ends of the yarn together so that the top edge of the hat all comes together. When you’ve got it pulled as tight as you can, knot the yarn together and weave the yarn ends into the hat.

Add a faux fur pom pom to the hat and you are DONE!

Tulip Textured Crochet Dishcloth Pattern

Tulip Textured Crochet Dishcloth Pattern

This post is late coming but each year, at the end of the school year, I like to make gifts for all of Noelle’s teachers and coaches. It’s a little tradition I started a few years ago and have now grown fond of. I’ve had a lot of very sweet comments from my daughter’s teachers expressing gratitude for receiving something handmade and personal. One of my favorite gifts is my handmade soap accompanied with crocheted washcloths.

This is a perfect opportunity to test out a new pattern so this year I created these very pretty dishcloths using a stitch I’ve been wanting to try, the tulip stitch. It has a really beautiful repetitive pattern with a lovely bumpy texture.

As with many crochet patterns, this pattern is really easy and moves along quickly once you get past the first couple of rows. The stitches are very basic, it’s just a matter of getting the stitches in the right place.

I hope you enjoy this sweet little pattern as much as I do. Happy hooking!
