spike stitch hat

This spike stitch hat started as a joke, a friend of mine is a biker and he went to a Christmas party with his hair done up.  So I decided to give him a black and orange messy bun hat for Christmas.  Much to my surprise, he is wearing it!  So I made up a second, regular toque for him.

If you would like a printable PDF of this pattern you can find one in my Etsy store.

 

Spike Stitch Hat

What you need

Stitches Used

  • ch – chain
  • sc – single crochet
  • sc dec – single crochet decrease
  • sp1 – spike stitch, elongated sc work 1 row below current stitch
  • sp2 – spike stitch, elongated sc work 2 row below current stitch
  • sp5 – spike stitch, elongated sc work 5 row below current stitch
  • st – stitch

Important Tip

The chain 1 at the beginning of each row is not counted, and do not work in it.  Slip Stitch to the first single crochet in the round, and work the first stitch of that row in the same stitch as the chain.
