The Wrapped in Love Hat was kind of a random idea, to be honest. 😅 I was working on another design, and doing my darnest to only use the yarn in my stash… I had to send my husband to Joann Fabric twice in order to finish the first idea… That doesn’t count as yarn shopping since he bought it and not me, right??? 😂

Anyways, with the remaining yarn, I could have put it on the shelves for a later time, but my imagination screamed, “Make a bowl hat!”

I chose a smaller, but large hook to make the hat for shaping since I wanted to add a brim. Some crochet hats double the yarn or use wire to hold the shape of the brim, but to double a super bulky yarn would have been tough on one’s hand and wrist. By using a slightly smaller than recommended hook size, the stitches are tighter to hold their shape.

To me, this hat reminds me of Blossom… Did I just age myself with that reference?? A larger brim hat would have been similar to summer sun hats, and that would create a different vibe for the style.

In designing the Wrapped in Love Hat, I wanted to include more than one heart, but I wasn’t happy with the outcome, so I frogged the row, and stopped at one heart that floats like a brooch. If you want more hearts, feel free to add them!

This is a top down constructed hat, which means that you start at the center of the crown, create the sides, and you can stop where it covers your ears or add the brim. I decided to offer two versions of the hat in an adult size, in case you don’t feel like bringing a 90’s vibe.

YARN

*Disclosure, for the use of affiliate links.

I chose Lion Brand Wool-ease Thick & Quick for this design for a few reasons. One reason is that it matches another design (coming soon 😉). A second reason is that it’s a classic yarn that I always have in my stash, especially after my mother scored A TON of it when a store closed years again in Atlanta a third reason is that it’s super soft and has great stitch definition. As a super bulky yarn, it doesn’t split when crocheting, so it’s a must use yarn, if you haven’t given it a try.

Each skein is a generous 106 yards/97 m, so there’s plenty leftover to make one of each style hat.
