crocheted ravens hat



Even though we only live about an hour for Baltimore, we have no affiliation with either team in the Superbowl. My husbands not even that excited about it. However, being from this area, we know a number of Raven's fans and I was asked to make a few hats for the big game.

If you'd like to make your own, follow along with this pattern (feel free to adjust the colors to coordinate with your favorite team!)


This pattern is adapted from Repeat Crafter Me's Owl Hat Pattern

Baltimore Raven's Crocheted Hat with Earflaps:
What you'll need:
1. Medium worsted weight yarn
2. Crochet hook size H
3. Darning needle (for weaving in loose ends)

Abbreviations:
ch - chain
SC - single crochet
DC - double crochet
HDC - half double crochet
HDC decrease - half double crochet decream
sl st - slip stitch
Here is Repeat Crafter Me's pattern with my alterations for the Raven's hat in RED :)

do not fasten off, begin on first earflap 

Earflaps:
In PURPLE
Row 1: Chain 2, HDC 12, chain 2, turn
Row 2: HDC decrease, HDC in next 8, HDC decrease, chain 2, turn
Row 3: HDC across, chain 2, turn (10 HDC)
Row 4: HDC decrease, HDC in next 6, HDC decrease, chain 2, turn
Row 5: HDC across, chain 2, turn (8 HDC)
Row 6: HDC decrease, HDC in next 4, HDC decrease, chain 2, turn
Row 7: HDC across, chain 2, turn (6 HDC)
Row 8: 3 HDC decreases
Row 9: 2 HDC decreases, chain 2, turn
Row 10: HDC decrease, fasten off leaving long tail.

Leave 25 stitches along the front for adult size hat... begin second earflap. After second earflap, Continue to SC around the entire hat. Join to first SC and fasten off, leaving long tail.

Braided Tails: 
Cut three SIX 1 yard strands of each color (9 18 strands total). 
Double over & pass loop through last space in earflap. You should now have 18 36 strands to braid with. Make a knot and braid approx 5.5 inches long, knot, trim ends.

Make a fun pom pom (YELLOW & WHITE) to add to the top :)


Now, go on - make a fun hat! If you need other sizes, check out Repeat Crafter Me's patterns. They're the best! I'm now going to focus on some yummy snacks for the game instead.

  4. This is super cute! The pretty purple just doesn't show up on the linky party. I live in the heart of Ravens territory but I'm not a football fan. My son is a Redskins fan and my hubby, Dallas Cowboys. Wish I could crochet. My MIL tried to teach me several years ago but I was stupid about learning.

  5. Your hat is adorable!! You did a fabulous job. We're not very excited about the Superbowl this year either. Even though we live in Louisiana, we are huge Cowboys fans. Probably shouldn't even admit that!! LOL Thank you so much for sharing at A Bouquet of Talent last week. So glad you did! Have a wonderful weekend!! Hope to see you at the party tonight.

    Hugs

  8. Lol, I couldn't make this even if I tried... but my daughter on the other hand was gifted with the ability to crochet so I'll have to show her this super cute hat idea. She could just switch out the colors and make it all girly :)

    Thanks for sharing it at my weekend link party @The Weekend re-Treat
