O’Hara Hat

REBECCA VELASQUEZ

Typically, when you think of the pineapple motif, a doily or perhaps even a shawl comes to mind. I knew I wanted to try something a bit different; something fun and modern; something wearable by many women with many different styles. A hat!

FINISHED MEASUREMENTS

Fits average woman’s head. Hat band circumference = 19″ (48.5 cm).

YARN

DK Weight (#4 Medium).

Shown here: Berroco Vintage DK (50% acrylic 40% wool, 10% nylon; 288 yd [263 m]/3.5 oz [100 g]): #2192 Chana Dal, 1 hank.

HOOK

Sizes G-6 (4.25 mm) and H-8 (5.00 mm). Adjust hook size if necessary to obtain the correct gauge.

NOTIONS

Locking stitch markers; tapestry needle for assembly and weaving in ends; one 1″ (2.5 cm) button.

GAUGE

16 sc by 20 rows= 4″ x 4″ (10 cm x 10 cm) with size G-6/4.25mm hook.

NOTE

The hat is worked from the bottom of the crown portion to the top, then the hat is turned and the band is added by stitching into the bottom loops of the foundation chain.

HAT BAND

With RS facing you, turn hat so that you will now be working into the unworked loops of the foundation chain.

Shell (sh): (2 dc, ch 1, 2 dc) in indicated st or sp. When a shell is worked into the next shell, all sts are worked into the ch-1 sp of the indicated shell. Work the following rows with a G/4.25mm hook.

Row 1: Ch 1, sc in same ch as sl st just made, remove m, sc in each ch around, ch 10, turn—87 sc, 10 ch.

Row 2: Sc in 2nd ch from hook and in each of next 8 ch, sc in each sc across, turn—96 sc.

Row 3: Ch 1, sc in first sc and in each of next 91 sc, ch 3, sk 3 sc, sc in next sc, 2 sc in last sc, turn.

Row 4: Ch 1, 2 sc in first sc, sc in each of next 2 sc, sc in each of next 3 ch, sc in each sc across, turn—97 sc.

Row 5: Ch 1, sc in each sc across, shift piece so that you are now working along the side of the buttonband, sc into the tch of row below, sc into side of next sc, sc into the tch of row below, shift piece so that you will now be working into the bottom loops of the button extension, 2 sc in first loop, sc into ea of next 8 loops, finish off. Weave in all the ends.

 

TECHNIQUE TIDBIT

For the most part, the basic pineapple lace is started with a half circle of a taller stitch, such as a double or treble crochet. On the next row, each tall stitch gets a single crochet and chain space. Then each row after has one less chain space than the previous one, which in the end makes up the pinecone shape of the pineapple motif. The fill around the motif is usually another chain space with either shells or V-sts that draw the eye to the pineapple. Once you can see the pattern, crocheting and finding mistakes become a tad easier to see.

 

BLOCKING AND SEWING

Liberally spray crown portion of the hat with water. Partially blow up a balloon. Without stretching the hat band, insert the balloon into the hat. Continue to blow up the balloon until it lightly stretches the lace/crown of the hat. Tie the balloon closed and allow the hat to air dry. When dry, pop and remove the balloon. Using project yarn and a yarn needle, with the RS facing you, sew the button to the hat band opposite the buttonhole, weave in the ends.
