Introduction: Helmet Hat

Picture of Helmet Hat

- Mom, if you have no work in progress (!!), I would like a helmet hat !”
- Did you find a pattern on the web ?
- You need a pattern ? Even if I tell you exactly what I want ?
- ….!!

I need to clarify : I have never made crochetwork, except amigurumis !
(so with this tuto anyone can achieve it...).

Supplies :
- 2 light grey yarn balls (50 gr – 133 m – 3-6 US needles)
- 1 red yarn ball (50 gr – 133 m – 3-6 US needles)
- some dark grey yarn leftovers.

Step 1:

So, let start by the hat, it should be the most easier part…
Take the light grey yarn.

10 double crochet (Dc) in a magic ring (10 treble crochet if you are UK…) (10)
Rnd 1 : 2 Dc in each stitch (20)
Rnd 2 : *1 Dc – 2 Dc in the next sticth* (30)
Rnd 3 : *2 Dc – 2 Dc in the next sticth* (40)
Rnd 4 : *3 Dc – 2 Dc in the next sticth* (50)
Rnd 5 : *4 Dc – 2 Dc in the next sticth* (60)
Rnd 6 : *5 Dc – 2 Dc in the next sticth* (70)
Rnd 7 : *6 Dc – 2 Dc in the next sticth* (80)
Rnd 8 : *7 Dc – 2 Dc in the next sticth* (90)
Rnd 9 : *8 Dc – 2 Dc in the next sticth* (100)
Rnds 10 à 23 : 1 Dc in each stitch (100)
From now on, turn your work at the end of the row
Rnds 24 à 33 : 60 Dc

Step 2:

Picture of

Fold the hat in two and pick up 44 stitches on each side of the fold.
(still in the light grey yarn)

Rnds 1 à 4 : 1 Dc in each stitch
Rnd 5 : 1 Dc in each stitch (red)

Step 3:

Picture of

Cut 230 strands about 17 cm in the red yarn.

Step 4:

Picture of

Fold 3 strands in two. Slip the loop in both sides stitch.

Tie by slipping ends in the loop. Tie 3 other strands in the same stitch but slippling the loop in the opposite direction.

Step 5:

Picture of

Go on for all red stitches.

The visor is symmetrical along the vertical axis but it’s not symmetrical along the horizontal axis (“I want the visor to cover my chin to prevent breeze“).

Step 7:

Picture of

For more comfort, I sew a piece of mesh inside the visor.

A sewed button to fix the visor on the left side. On the right side I sewed scratch to fix it without problem while wearing sunglasses or ski mask.

Step 8:

Et voilà!

I want to tan” or “it’s freezing”, he doesn't go unnoticed on ski run !

Warning : it’s my first crochet work !!
I did an empirical approach, thinking I was Penelope (⇒ often starting over !)
You may adapt my pattern…

THIS IS FANTASTIC XD

Thanks!
It has been washing (machine) 3 times and it still seams new, even the crest. And my son is still using it while skiing (21 years old!).

BobbyG11 (author)2015-10-18

I got it! What you mean is 1dc in next 2(3)(4)(...) Dc's than 2dc in in the next dc. Repeat.

BobbyG11 (author)2015-10-18

Ok i still dont understand how in rnd 3 you can get 40

TSwithKS (author)2014-12-03

And here's the second one... To fit my 11 month old niece. :)

So cute!!

Beware : all your family will ask you one...

TSwithKS (author)2014-11-30

First one finished!

TSwithKS (author)TSwithKS2014-12-03

It's actually grey, just not great lighting for pictures.

Nice done!
I like it in brown :-)

TSwithKS (author)2014-10-13

I'm wondering what weight of yarn did you use and what size crochet hook? Thanks!

The label on my ball yarn says : 3-4 mm / 3-6 US.
There is also a ball yarn pictogram where it's written "3-light" (100% acrylic to prevent scratch)

I used a 4mm crochet.

Enjoy and send a pic when finished...

The pictures look like you have some single crochets instead of Dc

See the detail of the 1st pic : it's Dc ;-)

RickyD1 (author)2014-09-23

ummm im new to crochet and i have tried following your notations but have no idea how you get to your end row numbers (10) (20) (30) (40)

the first:

10 double crochet (Dc) in a magic ring (10 treble crochet if you are UK…) (10)
Rnd 1 : 2 Dc in each stitch (20)
Rnd 2 : *1 Dc – 2 Dc in the next sticth* (30) all adds up to the end amounts.

but from there on it does not add up to the (40) if i were to do Rnd 3 : *2 Dc – 2 Dc in the next sticth* (40) I would end with (60) please could you maybe explain it to me better thanks.

Did you finaly find the 40 st at the end of the row?

Sorry I have not detailed the crochet patterns legend. You have to repeat what is in the "*...*" loop.

I think you are agree for the Rnd1 (if you crochet 2 Dc in each first 10 stitch you will have 20 stitches).

Rnd2 : *1Dc - 2DC in the next stitch* = 1Dc - 2DC in the next stitch - 1Dc - 2DC in the next stitch - 1Dc - 2DC in the next stitch - 1Dc - 2DC in the next stitch.... until the end of the round (so you have to make this 10 times). You will have 30 stitches.

Rnd3 : *2 Dc – 2 Dc in the next stitch* = 2 Dc – 2 Dc in the next stitch 10 times. You will be at the end of the row with 40 stitches.

Hope it helps you, send me a pic when finished ;-)

Awesome!:-D

Thanks !

Bartoche (author)2014-09-22

Montjoie! Saint-Denis! Que je trépasse si je faiblis! What an amazing idea! I will try to make such an helmet for my next ski session.

Thanks !

My English is so much French?... ;-)

L'anglais absolument pas! mais le pseudo oui :-)

:-p ça m'apprendra à réfléchir avant de causer...

Thanks

f5mando (author)2014-09-21

Brilliant, cool, and wickedly good-looking hat! Thanks for this!

Thanks ;-)

mworrall (author)2014-09-21

Just what I needed for my son-I hope mine turns out as neat as yours.

I'm sure it will !
Just beware at the size : I crochet tightly...

Send me a pic ;-)

Will do!

DeandrasCrafts (author)2014-09-20

So awesome! It's amazing that you counted all the pieces of string for the Mohawk. That look like it took so much time. Thanks for sharing the pattern with us!

To save time, wrap a 15 cm wide book (or other item) and cut on both slices.

Hop, 230 strands quickly done! :-)

PhilTee (author)2014-09-18

That looks amazing! Can you explain what a magic ring is?

It's a loop in which you crochet your first stich. Very useful!!

You will easily find videos searching "magic ring crochet".

Thanks!

awesomelumens (author)2014-09-18

too nice looks like a warrior

enelson8 (author)2014-09-18

This is great!

seamster (author)2014-09-18

Very nicely done!

Thanks.

I should have done it when he was a child : it's impossible to lose him on the ski run! ;-)
