Helmet Hat

Introduction: Helmet Hat

About: Faitmain-Faitcoeur : Handmade-Heartmade / Done with my hands from the bottom of my heart!

- 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:

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:

Cut 230 strands about 17 cm in the red yarn.

Step 4:

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:

Go on for all red stitches.

Step 6:

The visor

Rnd 32 : 1 Dc in each stitch (16) (dark grey)
Rnd 33 : *2Dc tog – 2 Dc* (12) (dark grey)
Rnd 34 : 1 Dc in each stitch (12) (light grey)
Rnd 35 : 5 Dc - 2Dc tog – 3 Dc – 2Dc tog (10) (light grey)
Rnd 36 : *2Dc tog – 3 Dc * (8) (light grey)
Rnds 37 & 38 : 1 Dc in each stitch (8) (light grey)
Rnd 39 : 2Dc tog (repeat) (4) (light grey)
Take a strand to make a loop and crochet 10 Dc in this loop (light grey)

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:

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…

    Question 1 year ago on Step 1

    Help! This is he first time trying to follow a pattern and I don't think I'm doing it right. I'm on the 13th row, third row of 100 dc, and it looks like a doily, am I doing something wrong?

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

    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

    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.

    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 ;-)
