The Diamonds Hat was inspired by learning the post extended stitches while completing the Sparkle and Shine Tunic by Cre8tion Crochet. By adding an extra yarn over and pull through, your post stitches become a little looser to keep your hat flat.
Whether you use a solid color, variegated or striping worsted weight yarn, you’ll crown will be surrounded in diamonds.
This is a shorter hat that’s perfect for the spring and summer months. If you prefer to wear hats in the fall and winter, just added a few more rows after the diamonds.
