I hook
Worsted Weight Yarn (I used Red Heart With Love)
Yarn Needle
Scissors
Pattern Notes: Do not count your turning ch as a stitch. Always join with a sl st to the first st of your rnd. When turning and beginning a new rnd, remember that you will not work a st into your sl st join and that you will work your last st of the rnd into the first st of the previous rnd which will be the same st that you sl st joined into (so it will look like it’s already been worked – that’s good!). Don’t let this confuse you.

Finishing
Once you finish your hat then you’re ready to cross stitch. I’ve never cross stitched before making this hat and it’s really easy! Just cut a piece of yarn, thread your yarn needle and start working your cross stitches. Once you’re done cross stitching just weave in the ends (at the back of your work).

Each cross stitch will be worked over 2 sc rows.
The blue dots mark the holes you’ll work your cross stitches in. So many things you could do!
Did you see the picture on page #4 with the vertical cross stitch stripes? I thought it would be fun to make a hat for a mom with her kid’s birthstone colors for the stripes.

    Oh this looks great & thank you so much for working out all the sizes for newborn right up to adult, I always get my sizing wrong when I try to guess so this is fab! Thanks for the little extras too to do cross stitch patterns, this is definitely going on my to-do for the new year :)

    Ahhh…Tara I love your patterns, have bought some and like them all. So easy to follow, my favorite being the Galilee hat and scarf. I am doing one right now for a baby shower gift for a baby girl. Will have to try this cross stitch as well. I used to do a lot of the counted cross stitch when my sight was better :-)

    Thanks for posting!!

    Thank you for the hats patterns and the cross stitch idea, I have decorated with swiss darning but never thought of cross stitching on them. :)
