How to Crochet a Top-Down Brim - Raffamusa Designs


Using the sl st join, join the first and last rows of the brim (alternatively, fasten off and seam the two rows together).

Fasten off and weave in your ends.


With white, make a mini pompom as follows:

Step 1. Take a couple of pens or pencils and hold them together to create a support. Make sure that the pens don’t have rubber grips of large parts at either end otherwise you won’t be able to remove the yarn.

Step 2. Roll the yarn around the support until you have a mini ball (photo 7), and cut the yarn.

Step 3. Slide the mini ball of yarn from the support, and with a length of white, tie the ball in the center (photo 8) following the direction shown by the dashed line in photo 7.

Step 4. Cut the folded strands of yarn at both sides of the pompom (photo 9).

Step 5. Open up the pompom and trim it to make it round and nice (photos 10-11).


Attach the pompom on top of the hat.

With a length of white, embroider a few snowflakes or other decorations of your choice on the hat.

Fasten off and weave in all your ends.
