Crochet Patterns

THE ROBBIE HAT

This pattern was the very first design I had ever created. I crocheted this hat on the last day of 2015, hence the name Robbie’s New Year Hat (Robbie is my husband’s nickname) but now, I changed the pattern name to The Robbie Hat. After sharing it on my Facebook page and getting some great compliments, I decided on writing up the pattern. Then I posted it on my Ravelry as a free download. Well, as a newbie to the design world then, I didn’t know that I should have my pattern tested first. Thankfully, people were so forgiving and they had commented and corrected my errors.

Last month, I revisited my pattern because I wanted to use it for my “#hatnothate campaign” hat donation. This gave me the idea to revise my pattern and blog it. I also came up with another hat design which I will share soon.

Shall we begin?
