Free Pattern: No More Snow! a hat

No More Snow! a hat

No More Snow! a hat

It cannot possibly be snowing again. But it is.

To vent my frustration I made another hat. A cross between Big Worm and Worm on a Hook, No More Snow! is a little larger than Worm on a Hook without the taper rows and with a smaller slip stitch ribbed edge than Big Worm. No More Snow! probably ended up to be the closest of the three hat patterns to Wurm.

Here’s the pattern for No More Snow! (and I mean it):

No More Snow Crocheted HatMaterials:

275 yards of worsted weight yarn (I used around 1.25 skeins of Paton’s Classic Wool Worsted Weight )
H crochet hook (5.0 mm)
J crochet hook (6.0 mm)
Tapestry Needle

Abbreviations:

BLO: Work in the Back Loop Only.

BBL: Work in the Back Back Loop only. This is the loop BEHIND the back loop.

Top of work where you can see the work done in the BBL
1 – For HDC in BBL, YO, insert hook into BBL
2 – YO, pull up a loop
3 – YO, pull through all loops on hook

Ch: Chain
FHDC:
Foundation Half Double Crochet
HDC: Half Double Crochet
RSC: Raised Single Crochet (special stitch). After using this stitch in the Fritillary Scarf, I did some research to see if there was an official name for this stitch. While I found the stitch mentioned in a few places, I did not see it named anywhere else, so I’ve used the name from the Fritillary Scarf (if it was in American terms). This is similar to a back post stitch. Insert hook from back to front, under top two loops of stitch, then from front to back, under top two loops of next stitch. Hook will be around the post. YO, pull up a loop, YO, pull through both loops on hook.

Raised SC: 1 – Back to front under top loops of stitch
2 – Then from front to back under top loops of next stitch
3 – Your hook will now be around the post. Now YO, pull up a loop.
4 – YO, pull through both loops on hook, stitch is finished

RHDC: Raised Half Double Crochet (special stitch). Similar to the Raised Single Crochet, but this is the Half Double Crochet version. YO, insert hook from back to front, under top two loops of stitch, then from front to back, under top two loops of next stitch. Hook will be around the post. YO, pull up a loop, YO, pull through all loops on hook.
HDC2TOG in BBL: Half Double Crochet 2 Together in Back Back Loop
SS: Slip Stitch
Video tutorials for the special stitches used in this pattern can now be found on the Crochet Video Tutorial page.

Closeup of No More Snow! a hatBack of No More Snow HatPattern:

Pattern is written for an adult size hat. Notes are included to adjust for child size hat.

Body of Hat (with J hook):

The body of the hat is worked in the round. You will be joining at the end of each round. Do not turn at the end of the round.

First Ch 1 at the beginning of the round does not count as a stitch.

For a Child size hat, start with a foundation row of 78 stitches.

To make the hat smaller or larger than the pattern, you can just add more or less stitches to the foundation row and do more or less repeats of rounds 2-4.

Round 1: Ch 2 (does not count as a stitch), 83 FHDC, then for final FHDC you will connect the foundation row. Make sure the foundation row is straight, put the two ends side by side, yo, insert hook into top two loops of chain of working side, then insert hook from the back to front of two loops of chain of the other side, yo, pull through both sides and pull up a loop, yo, pull through all loops on hook, ss to connect to top part of stitch. (84)

Round 2: Ch 1 (does not count as a stitch), RSC in each stitch around, SS to connect to top of first stitch (84)

Round 3: Ch 1, RHDC in each stitch around, SS to connect to top of first stitch (84)

Round 4: Ch 1, HDC in BBL of each stitch around, SS to connect to top of first stitch (84)

Round 5-22: Repeat Rounds 2-4 six more times

Round 23-24: Repeat Rounds 2-3

Round 25: Ch 1, HDC2TOG in BBL of each stitch around, SS to connect to top of first stitch (42)

FO leaving long tail. Weave the tail in and out of each stitch of the last round and pull tight to close. Stitch a few stitches to secure and close up opening.

The body of the hat is done. Now for the edging.

Edging of hat (with H hook):

You will be turning at the end of each row.
Be sure to count stitches as you go. It is easy to lose stitches if you don’t.
Keep your tension VERY loose.
You’ll want to use something to pick up the first and last stitches of each row. I used the eyehole side of a yarn needle.
Upon request, a video of the edging is now available.

For a Child size hat, Ch 6 instead of 8.

Row 1: With the wrong side facing you, join yarn in foundation row with a SS, Ch 8, turn. (8)

Row 2: Ch 1, SS in BLO of second Ch from hook, SS in BLO of each stitch, SS through both loops of foundation row (you should be on the wrong side), turn. (8)

Row 3: Skip SS in foundation row, SS in BLO of each stitch, turn. (8)

Row 4: Ch 1, SS in BLO of each stitch, SS through both loops of foundation row for 2 stitches, turn. (8)

Row 5: Skip 2 SS in foundation row, SS in BLO of each stitch, turn. (8)

Row 6: Ch 1, SS in BLO of each stitch, SS through both loops of foundation row, turn. (8)

Repeat Rows 3-6 until you meet up with the beginning, ending with either Row 4 or 6.

For the final row that connects the two sides, hold the two wrong sides together, turn. SS through both sides of work, BLO on side facing you, FLO on other side, FO.

Weave in ends.

      I do not have any videos, but I have been meaning to make some for a while. I know the hats could really use some.
      I was just playing around with angles of my laptop camera and may actually be able to work with it for the videos. I will need to wait for this weekend though and shoot in the daylight so it’s not too grainy.

      I was looking to see if I could find any online for the slip stitch ribbing connecting to an edge, but don’t see any. Doris Chan uses ribbing edges in several parts of the Everyday Crochet book if you happen to have it. Her Sash-A Belt uses slip stitch crochet. The edging of the hat is a combination of the two.

      I am definitely still learning when it comes to hat sizing.
      78 with Paton’s Classic Wool would have fit my son last year when he was 7. Of course gauge and yarn choice also play a role.
      If I made the hat again for me, I would probably add a few more stitches.
      My husband actually took both my No More Snow! and Big Worm. He has a big head. No More Snow! (the one that was mine) is a little small for him, but it works. Big Worm (which was intentionally big on me) fits him perfectly.
      Since I am now hatless and my son lost his hat at the end of last winter, I really need to make some more ASAP and will work on a writing a post on hat sizing.
      If you make it and have any feedback, please let me know.

    I love this hat! Just finished the body of it for a friend’s Christmas gift. I had to add about ten foundation stitches (used husband as a guide for size :). But now I am really lost on the ribbing. Your pictures of the stitches really helped me understand (visual learner) so if a video isn’t a possibility, maybe some more pictures would help?
    Thank you for the pattern!

      Hi Landra,
      I’m glad you like the pattern.
      Interesting to know that the ribbing has been more difficult to follow than the body of the hat. I thought it would have been the other way around.
      I’ve been working on videos for a while tonight. So far it hasn’t been going that well. Apparently it’s not that easy to find a good angle to “watch” someone crochet. Webcam video is horrible and cell phones have the whole “Help, I need to be charged” thing going on.
      If the videos don’t work out, I’ll get pictures up by tomorrow night. I’m still fighting with my cell phone. Hopefully I win.

      I’m glad it helped. Yes, attach the yarn with the inside of the hat facing (not sure it makes that much of a difference either way).
      I have been thinking a lot about the little boy you are making the hat for and am sending good thoughts and prayers his way.

    Hi, I am loving the way this hat is turning out! One question, though. I am trying to figure out how to do the HDC2TOG in BLL. Do I do 2 HDC in 1 BBL, or do I do 1 HDC in 2 BBL? Thanks for the great tutorial!

    ” Pattern is written for an adult size hat. ”

    But then in line 4 of body of hat you state:
    “For a child size hat start with a foundation row of….”
    Unless I’m missing it, you never actually say what to start with for an average ADULT sized hat?

    Hello! I love this hat and I’d like to make it as a gift. I am a newer crocheter and I am very confused at this part, “Make sure the foundation row is straight, put the two ends side by side, yo, insert hook into top two loops of chain of working side, then insert hook from the back to front of two loops of chain of the other side, yo, pull through both sides and pull up a loop, yo, pull through all loops on hook, ss to connect to top part of stitch. (84)” I’m not entirely sure what is going on. I think I’m confusing the language. If you could clarify for me I’d greatly appreciate it!!
    Thank you so much!!

    Made this today. Great hat! I used Caron Cakes yarn so it is super snuggly and rad colors. If I make it again, which I plan to do, I will add more than just 6 repeats of rows 2-4, maybe 8… Thanks! I will have to check out your other patterns!
