Sonesta Hat Band / Necklace

The Sonesta Hat Band is another pattern that I designed when I worked for Caron and it was on their blog (which is no longer), so I am now offering the pattern here for free.  Sadly, the NaturallyCaron Spa yarn that the pattern was made in has been discontinued, but the pattern could be made in most any yarn you choose.

The nice thing about this design is that it also doubles as a necklace. And if you wanted, make it a longer and use it as a belt!

FINISHED MEASUREMENTS:

Completed Hat Band Measures 1” wide x 23” in circumference

  • Naturally Caron.com SPA (75% Microdenier Acrylic/25% Rayon from bamboo; 3oz/85g, 251yds/230m): #0007 Naturally: 1 skein  (will make approximately 3 hatbands)
  • One size US D-3 (3.25mm), or size to obtain gauge.

STITCHES USED: Chain (ch), single crochet (sc), double crochet (dc), FPdc (FPdc), Slip Stitch (sl st)

NOTE:  This pattern is written for a hat with a 23” circumference brim.  For larger or smaller hats, simply make more or less motifs to fit.

Block each motif to 1.5” x 1.75”.  Sew motifs end to end using yarn needle and matching yarn.  To sew together, line up the motifs evenly and place 3 stitches (using each of the 3 FPdc as a guide for each stitch.) Using yarn needle, weave in all ends. Block lightly, if desired. Using single strand of yarn in same color, sew beads on as pictured.

    • Carrie says:

      The hat came from a second-hand store. I have no idea where it came from originally. Sorry!

        I don’t have any problems when I try to print it. I’ve added a link to a PDF file for the pattern. It is just an image capture of the page, but should get you a printable pattern. 🙂
