Textured Crochet Technique

Don’t let the textured look scare you. It is simpler than you may think to achieve this textured crochet technique.  To get the unique textured look a front post double crochet and back post double crochet are used. The ridge is completed by using a front post single crochet stitch. There is also two rows of double crochet between.

Making a Pom-Pom

The hat shown in the photo does not have a pom-pom because I have yet to figure out how to make one. I have watched a few you tube videos but it looks a bit tedious. However, thinking I will have to tackle that soon because my daughter has asked for one on top of this hat. I do agree that it would make it even more stylish. Update: link at the bottom on how to make a pom-pom. It ended up being very easy with the right tools.

  1. I really like this pattern, it was fun to do. Question: was there supposed to be a ch 1 at the end of all the rows? I just wondered if there was a mistake in the pattern so I added the ch 1 at the end of all rows.

    1. Thanks for asking. When completing the rounds, the chain two does not count as a stitch. Attach the round I the first stitch. It helps close up the space where the rounds are started and ended, which makes it harder to tell where that area is when looking at the hat.
