Thinking of Getting a Crochet Hat? Getting something to wear in the head is nothing new. People who are young and old have used these for years to keep it protected from the heat of the sun or rain and even to cover a bald spot. The hat is made of different fabrics and designs. Given the wide selection that people can choose from, it is also possible to make a hat using crochet patterns. It is very common to find people using a hat in cold climates. Yarn that is commonly used keeps the head warm. The person can add some color into it which will not make it look dull. Those who are good with the hands can weave other designs that can make it truly stand out. There are stores and some on the internet that sell hats that have crochet patterns all throughout the year. If the person has some basic knowledge about cross stitching, it will easy to study how it was done and to copy it when the individual gets home. It sometimes takes a little inspiration from such manufacturers to push the person into making a few modifications to the kind of hat that fits the individual. This could be changing the color since the store may not have it or just making it unique. Another good source of information for such designs is the internet or in fashion shows. Collections for the succeeding season are always launched months ahead before it arrives. By knowing what the “in thing” is, the person will have the right hat when these start selling in the malls. Some basic steps on how to do this is also featured on instructional shows and learning a thing or two will help in bringing the idea to life. Friends who love hats can also give good ideas which will really make the hat different than those that can easily be purchased from the store. The fashion world always makes collection for 4 seasons. This is spring, summer, fall and winter. Crochet patterns for the hat and the colors used are not different and are also used here. The first half of the year always starts with the bright colors. Adding a few darker colors in the form of lines, strips or certain shapes will make the hat not look dull and boring. It is also possible to add animal shapes or anything about nature since this is the time that a season is welcomed. Going towards the second half of the year in anticipation of autumn and winter, this now shifts to a darker color. Some good colors are dark blue or navy, black, violet, grey to name a few. As the leaves begin to fall, putting some art work about nature can still give it something nice to show people. Winter and Christmas is still done in the dark color. The most common during this time is red which can have some add-ons such as snowflakes colored in white, trees in green or a mixture of both with Santa Claus and perhaps the reindeers on the side of the hat. The person has to buy the materials needed such as the needle and thread before starting on the project. This is available in various lengths and thickness so it is best to get enough to avoid running out during the stitching. Some people who don’t live in cold climates can still wear a hat with crochet patterns. Lighter fabric should be used and may serve as a fashion statement for someone who wants to show some individuality. Basic knowledge of stitching will give the person the edge of finishing the job faster. By knowing what kind of design to work on with the materials already available, the person can make many should this small hobby turn into a business. There are so many crochet patterns to choose from. With a little practice, the person does not have to use an instructional video or book anymore since the ideas are already inside the person’s head. The person should just then find the time to sit down and draw it before turning that idea into something that can be used for the head.
