Crochet cap - instructions


These are the instructions to crochet the cap I had posted here. The other day, i just clicked on the link for the video, all i got was the site. I could not find the video in there. Then finally, I searched one whole day until I found the video again. This time, I decided that it is better to record it here since I will definitely be making this cap again.

Please note that the instructions are written down in a language that makes sense to me, and should be easy to understand by anyone. Experts in crochet kindly excuse ...!!!

Materials specified

Yarn - 2 (103 yards long) there will be yarn leftover.
Crochet hook - size 10.5

Step 1: Tie a knot with a slip stitch and make 8 chain stitches.Connect both ends to make a tiny ring.

Step 2: 2 single crochet stitches in each stitch (so there will be 16 stitches now)

Step 3: Single crochet stitches in 1st, 2nd and 3rd stitches and 2 single crochets in every 4th stitch.

Step 4: Single crochet all around

Step 5: 2 Single crochet stitches all around

Step 6 : Single crochet stitch in 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th stitches and 2 single crochets in every 5th stitch

Step 7: Single crochet all around

Step 8 : Single crochet stitch in 1st, 2nd, 3rd,4th and 5th stitches and 2 single crochets in every 6th stitch

Step 9: Single crochet all around

Step 10: 2 Single crochet stitches in every 7th stitch

Step 11: 2 Single crochet stitches in every 8th stitch

Step 12: 2 Single crochet stitches in every 9th stitch

Step 13: 2 Single crochet stitches in every 10th stitch

Step 14: 2 Single crochet stitches in every 11th stitch

Step 15: 2 Single crochet stitches in every 12th stitch

Step 16: 2 Single crochet stitches in every 13th stitch.

Step 17: After the step 16, counting is not required for a while. Single crochet every stitch for many rows till you get the depth that is required to fit over the head. At this point, the edges of the cap should slightly curl inwards, which means you are doing everything right ...

Step 18: Single crochet 1st, 2nd and third stitches and skip every 4th stitch.

Step 19: Single crochet 1st, 2nd and third stitches and skip every 4th and 5th stitch.

Step 20:To close the end, take a big loop, tie a knot, cut, then tuck the hanging ends neatly into the cap with the crochet needle.

The cap is ready...!!!

The instruction were given in a video by Threadbangers and they called it chrochet hat. So google it and you may just be lucky enough to find it.
