Crochet Bumble Bee Hat

I'm taking a break from crocheting for now and return to my crystals because orders just came in. But before doing so, I had to finish first my crochet beanie project, a cute bumble bee design hat for my son.

 

This is actually my first project wherein I followed a written pattern. Yep! Congratulations to myself because I can slowly understand crochet patterns now, though I still need the help of the ever reliable internet for stitches that I still do not know. Like in this project, I learned how to make magic ring and single crochet decrease


This project was made by yours truly with the help of a pattern from Sarah  of www.repeatcrafterme.com called the Crochet Bumble Bee Hat.

To start with I used two 18 grams of Monaco Acrylic crochet yarns (yellow and black), size H hook and yarn needle.


Doing the hat is quite easy though, I can actually made it in just few hours hehehe (pero hindi straight ha... may long breaks in between hehehe) yabang ko noh! hehe


And now for the antennae. The hardest for me, because I did 2 trials before getting the "not so right" pair of antennae but considerable na rin.


I stuffed the antennae with black yarn, so it will  stick up a little. This is also where the yarn needle came in, sewing the antennae on to the hat.



And the finish product! charaaaaan!



The Bumble Bee Hat....



So what do you think?

I will post photo of my son wearing this hat soon...

  1. Congratulations! At first talaga, mahirap sundan ang mga patterns. Different countries had their different names on stitiches. Like for example, in UK dc is equivalent to sc in US, tc is dc in US but eventually you can already do your own pattern by looking on the design.
    By the way, I just made bumble bee hat this week as one of the orders.

  17. Daddy Allan is right. Sa una lang mahirap talaga. Like the way you hold the yarn and the hook, to how well you control it and so on. Reading the patterns is also a big challenge as you need to learn the different terms and abbreviations. Sa una talaga nakakaloka but after sometimes it be easier until ikaw na mismo ang gagawa ng pattern. We have that Bumblebee hat too paired with booties. Way to go sis.
