5 Little Monsters: Post Stitch Hat

Post Stitch Hat

Almost 2 years ago I shared my Bead Stitch Hat pattern and it has been by far one of my most popular patterns. It also happens to be one of my favorites so I am glad other people are enjoying it too. Earlier this year I shared a couple of new patterns that were made in the same style but used different stitches in place of the bead stitch.



This hat is another in that "collection" of hat patterns. This one uses front and back post stitches in place of the bead stitches. I really like to look of the highly textured, alternating rows of stitches. I love that it creates a lot of visual interest with a single color of yarn.


For this hat I added a ribbing stitch made of post stitches, the same stitch used for the ribbing around the bottom of the hat, in between the rounds of half double crochet. I thought it would look neat and kind of give a vertical texture to contrast the horizontal rounds of half double crochet. I thought it turned out looking very similar to the knit C.C. beanies that you see everywhere, but a crocheted version.
