How to Crochet a Peppermint Twist Baby Hat Part 9/15
So now, want to fasten this together into a circle. What we want to do is put your white string over with now trimmed. Our brown string we are not tied it to anything yet, we just trimmed it so let it set of our way and we want to keep the white over on the other side. And what we are going to do is we are going to fasten these, adjust together like you would on a Granny square. So just putting your edge to sticking your needle through the stitch that’s on the very edge on the other side and pulling through and I'm pulling it, see that stitch, there’s your first one.
So now what you want to do is you want to go your next stitch on the front one just going through both of them not going to the back stitch. We are going through both of them and then go to the next stitch available that’s down on the next piece and this is exactly how you do Granny squares, so it’s the same way. So going to the next stitch on this side, going to the next stitch on the other side, it’s kind of like shoe laces or we want to just fix them together. And the further you go along, the more it is pulling together and the more obvious that’s where the stitches are.
Now, the one that you see in behind the scenes, that one, it was off but two stitches longer on one side than it was the other. That’s because I am not perfect. But you know having a brim can cut those defects as well. So I'm really not sure about the end of this line whether I will have maintained my 30 stitches across whether I’ve added or subtracted any along the way.
What you’d kind of doing right now is you are acting as human sewing machine. And the way that we are affixing them right now is causing a ridge. Do you see that? That’s causing it to ridge so that’s exactly what you want, so it blends right in. So we are going to keep going until you run out of the edge and until they are both are actually fixed together. You can see the twirl is. Now the twirl is becoming so obvious. It’s when this project gets really fun kind of tying it together.
You can almost hold two edges together knowing that your crochet is so consistent that you are catching the stitch on the other side as well. Look at that I almost got perfect. I might have added one or stitches along the way but its pretty close.
I can’t still find the one right at the bottom and ready to tip. I’m pulling it through so there you go. So now we have just fastened everything down into a circle as you can see. What I would do at this point, it is a baby that we’re talking about so I'll do a little bit genders with the string and if you were me, I would put this string through like so nice and tight and just pull your string through. This will be the, what we see right now is the good side so I would pull it to the underside. And see, this stitching how it is kind of like a sewing machine underneath so I just go underneath these things. It’s pulling on the underneath because you won’t see it on the other side and just pull the string just through it and this prevents it from falling out. And I would probably go every one to be quite- I’m honest with you I’m kind of rushing but I would go pull it through every one of these things just to make sure that the baby is not going to pull it around you after having a temper tantrum.
So that’s what I would do there and we will stop the video for a moment.
