THYSTLE HAT – A FREE CROCHET PATTERN

Share with friends... ↓

Thystle is a free hat pattern that is rich in style. Combining simple single and treble crochet stitches creates an interesting textured fabric similar to the puff stitch, without all the extra work.

For this project, I wanted a light colored yarn to show off the texture, with a contrasting dark border to make the buttons pop more. So I used Red Heart Super Saver in Light Grey and Charcoal.

I know some people tend to avoid this yarn because it’s not the softest acrylic out there, but I enjoy working with it and love that it washes and wears really well.
