Materials ~

Yarn ~ 150 Yards of worsted weight wool yarn.  I used Premier Yarns Boreal in Kingfisher -2 Skeins

Hook ~ K

Elastic Hairband

Size ~

22″ circumference un-streatched  and 9″ height

Stitches ~

St – Stitch     Ch – Chain      Sp – Space      Sk – Skip      Sl St – Slip Stitch      Sc – Single Crochet     Hdc – Half Double Crochet     Dc – Double Crochet     Fpdc – Front Post Double Crochet

*Shell – 3 dc in designated st.

*Reverse Sc


Round 1:  52 foundation sc (or ch 53, turn sc in 2nd ch from hook and each across), join with sl st to beginning sc being very careful not to twist the project = 52 sc.*The foundation sc is a bit more stretchy and will make a better base.

Round 2:  Ch 3(counts as Dc now and throughout), sk st, 3dc in next st, *sk st, dc in next st, sk st, 3 dc in next st*, repeat *to* around, join around beg dc(this will make the joining st look like a fpdc by going around and not in the st). = 13 shells & 13 dc

Rounds 2 – 15:  Ch 3, *3dc shell in next st(this will be the 1st st of shell from previous round), sk 2 sts, fpdc around the next dc*, repeat *to* around. Join with sl st around beginning dc. = 13 shells & 13 fpdc

*Attaching hairband – Ch 1, sc around the hairband into each st around, join with sl st to beginning sc.


With right side still facing(outside of hat), join yarn in any st of beginning foundation sc row

Round 1:  Ch 1, sc in each st around, join to beginning sc. = 52 sc

Round 2 & 3:  Ch 2(counts as hdc), hdc in each st around, join with sl st to top of ch 2. = 52 hdc

Round 4:  Ch 1, reverse sc around, join with sl st to beginning st. = 52 rev sc

Finish off, weave in ends.

Congratulations, you now have a Boreal Bun Hat!!!

Happy Crocheting!!

Choosing a Perfect Crochet Project… 3 Great ideas!!

How to choose your next crochet project… How hard can that be??

For many of us it is so hard to choose(or focus on) the next crochet project…  Here are 3 ways I found that makes it easier to find your way to the next best project….

  1.  Find a yarn you love… This inspires me and makes me feel great about starting a new project… Once you have the yarn, you can pop on to the manufactures website and look at the recommended projects they have for the particular yarn.  Ravelry even has yarn listings and you can find what projects other people have made using the same yarn.
  2. Decide if you want an accessory, home project or child’s project… Once you get this far, you can do a Google search for the type of project you want to make(hat, afghan, toy, shawl), or head to Ravelry, All Free Crochet or your favorite designers site… All of these have search areas!!!
  3. Choose who you will be making a project for… This will narrow down the field!  You will know their style, age, size, home decor and more… Next you think of what would benefit or bless them the most!  Then grab your yarn and hook and get started on your next great project!

Start with any of these ideas, or combine all of them together to get a great project started right away… Remember.. There are never to many WIP’s!!!

Happy Crocheting!!
