I have always loved Polka Dot fabric and this hat pattern is my crochet version of it. Does polka dot hold its own charm or does the attraction lie in the fact that we subconsciously associate it with Minnie Mouse? It is surprising how a brand name can become so larger than life that it takes the place of the actual object itself. Now that I have seen the connection, I would definitely be making a few in darker color combinations. I had always wanted to try my Bella Ruffled bag in Fuchsia but never found the time. Now, if there were more hours in a day……….
This hat has been a joy to make and gave me the Eureka moment for cracking down how to work a polka dot pattern in crochet. The pattern uses bobbles and Spike Sc and can be classified as advanced beginner. Since the pattern describes with pictures how to work a bobble as well a a spike sc it should be easy for beginner level crocheters too. Please note that a bobble is not a popcorn and is far easier to work though they both look quite similar.
The crochet pattern includes sizes newborn to woman. It is written in Standard American Terms and worked using an H (5mm) hook. The pattern for making the pom poms are also included. It is worked using Worsted weight yarn ( size 4 medium) also know as "Aran" in UK.
