Shangri-la Sun Hat Week Two

Posted on July 17, 2017 by Kathy Lashley | 0 Comments

 It's time to get started with Week Two of the Shangri-la Sun Hat!  Lots of you have already orders the wire and joiners you'll need to make the hat, and I'm so excited to start seeing these projects come together.  

 This week we will learn how to crochet the body of the hat pattern.  Some of you may be familiar with the symbol (dc2tog) which means double crochet two stitches together.  If you aren't, no worries because that's what you'll be learning.  There is a little twist to thing special stitch this time because you'll be crocheting if over the course of a stitch while skipping a few stitches then completing the stitch.  It will be fun, I promise!

I'll given you the written directions for this part of the hat so that you can begin practicing.

Special Stitch:

Double crochet 2 stitches together (dc2tog): (YO, insert your hook in indicated st, YO, pull up a loop, YO, pull through 2 loops) known as first leg of dc2tog, (YO, insert hook into next indicated st, YO, pull through 2 loops, YO, pull through remaining 3 loops.) known as second leg of dc2tog

Now look at how the instructions will be written in this excerpt I've given you in the pattern to see how it's done.

*ch 2, first leg of dc2tog in next st, skip next 3 sts, 2nd leg of dc2tog in next st, ch 2**, dc in next 3 sts, repeat from * around, ending last repeat at **  (This is an excerpt of part of the pattern to demonstrate how it is written).

A Note About Comments

Hey everybody! Shortly into our CALs we realized that our out-of-the-box blog comment system wouldn't let us reply to your comments.

We've since installed Disqus, above, which allows you guys to respond to each other and us to reply to your questions; seems like a no-brainer!

We will continue to display existing comments from the old comment system on all existing blog posts. All future commenting will be done through Disqus. Enjoy!
