Lattice Hat Back to Patterns


This is not a beginner's pattern.
This pattern uses front post double crochet (fpdc) as well as back post double crochet (bpdc) There are several good tutorials online of how to complete these stiches, as well as Youtube videos that will walk you through them. It is expected that you know these stitches and are comfortable with them before beginning the pattern.


Items Needed:
Less than 4oz. of WW yarn
H hook for body
G hook for ribbing

Gauge:3 dc with H hook=1", 2 rows of dc=1" Height isn't as important as width since rounds can be added on.

Stitches used: Single Crochet (sc), Double Crochet (dc), Front Post Double Crochet (fpdc), Back Post Double Crochet (bpdc), Lattice Treble Cluster (LTC) explained below.


Lattice Treble Cluster (LTC):
Yo 2 times (3 loops on hook):

Insert hook under first LTC from round before last:

Yo:

Pull through (4 Loops on hook):

Yo, pull through first 2 loops on hook, yo, pull through next 2 loops on hook (2 loops on hook):

Yo 2 times (4 loops on hook):

Insert hook under next LTC from round before last:

Yo:

Pull through (5 loops on hook):

Yo, pull through first 2 loops on hook, yo, pull through next 2 loops on hook (3 loops on hook):

Yo, pull through all three loops, LTC is complete:



Ch 2 at the beginning of each dc row, counts as first dc. For rows beginning with fpdc: ch 2, fpdc down into stitch you slipped to (will force the ch 2 behind the fpdc) and ignore ch 2. Slip to first stitch at the end of every row.

For color changes: color change at the beginning of a dc row, this will insure that the LTC that goes down over the row will match.

1. 9 dc in Adjustable Ring
2. 2 fpdc in every dc (18 fpdc)
3. *Fpdc in fpdc, dc in the space between last fpdc and the next, fpdc in fpdc, fpdc in fpdc, dc in the space between last fpdc and the next, fpdc in fpdc* repeat from * to * around (18 fpdc, 9 dc)
4. *Fpdc in fpdc, dc in dc, fpdc in fpdc, dc in the space between last fpdc and the next* repeat from *to* around(18 fpdc, 18 dc)
5. *Fpdc in fpdc, dc inc in dc, fpdc in fpdc, dc in dc* repeat from *to* around(18 fpdc, 27 dc)
6. *Fpdc in fpdc, dc in dc, dc in dc, fpdc in fpdc, dc inc in dc* repeat from *to* around(18 fpdc, 36 dc)
7. *Fpdc in fpdc, dc in dc, dc inc in dc* repeat from *to* around(18 fpdc, 54 dc)
8. Dc around (72 dc)
9. ch 1, sc in same st, sc, LTC (crochet under fpdc instead of LTC as shown in instructions), *sk 1 dc, sc next 3 dc, LTC* repeat from * to * 17 times, sk 1 dc, sc next dc, sl in first sc (18 LTC, 54 sc)
10. Dc around (72 dc)
11. ch 1, LTC, *sc in next 3 dc, LTC, sk 1 dc* repeat from * to * 17 times, sc next 3 dc, sl to first LTC (18 LTC, 54 sc)
12-21. Repeat rows 8-11, ending with row 9. (if you desire a longer hat you can continue to repeat until an inch shorter than desidered length, ending on an odd numbered row)
Switch to G hook

22. *fpdc down into last LTC, bpdc, fpdc, bpdc* repeat from * to * around (36 fpdc, 36 bpdc)
23-24. fpdc in fpdc, bpdc in bpdc around (36 fpdc, 36 bpdc)
Tie off and weave in ends
A note on all my patterns: I offer my patterns free, and I'd like them to stay free, therefore feel free to print them out and pass them out to as many people as you'd like, I simply ask that you put my web address somewhere on the pattern, so people know where it came from. Never ever sell my patterns or present them as your own. You can give away items made from my patterns, but if you want to sell them online you need to state that the pattern is free and available here. This means that every single listing for any item made with my pattern must state that the pattern you used is free and you must also post a link to it. I'm not trying to be mean, I just want the most people possible to have access to free patterns. Please don't violate these rules and ruin things for everyone else. Thanks!
