Crochet Basic Hat and Neck Warmer

To make the basic crown, I use this guide
I did add an extra increase round as my yarn may have been a bit finer than the one suggested and I also used a smaller hook.
Once I had the crown established I worked the griddle st (the up and down st) around the hat as I had used it in the neck warmer.
I finished off with a row of hdc, a row of 1 sc and ch 3 around, then I worked 5 sc in the ch 3, around and I finished off with a picot in the centre of the 5 sc around.
The flower was one I made up, as I wanted one that I could centre a button in and hang some jewellry from the button. I am particulary pleased with the hanging jewellry and I intend to work with this style more often.
I'm also showing off my new head model here.
Its the first time I have used her. She is a bit on the ugly side, but I can always take photo shots like the first in of this post. I picked her up at a garage sale for around $5.00. Yes she came quite cheap and willing.

I am really loving your hats & neckwarmer sets. How unique!! I'd love to see more free patterns of your sets. They are super. I am only interested in making them for myself.

Hello Fibre Artist, the Crochet Basic Hat and Neck Warmer are very feminine and stylish. I finished the neck warmer but I can't figure out how to work the hat. Could you post the pattern instructions for the hat? The yarncat link is not direct to the pattern.

By the way, I finished two Tezzie hats and they ARE lovely! Thank you so much for the pattern.

Thank you for your feed back :) I will change the link to the basic dc crown, I have written my own directions in 2 blog posts, which may help you.
