Crochet Projects - How to Prepare Your Mobius Style Hat for the Lauren Zigzag Edge




I'm going to make the edging for the Lauren crochet beanie hat. Notice the slanting twist.

Three double crochet stitches rest in one single crochet stitch

Three double stitches rest in one single crochet stitch. Except 3 chains rest on top of the 2nd double crochet stitch. After chaining those stitches, single crochet 1 into the 2 loops beneath the chain 3.



Begin the first zigzag picot stitch

We're going to make the zigzag and start on the third single crochet from the top. I'm using my size K 10 1/2(6.50mm) crochet hook to join a separate piece of cut yarn. Make sure the short tail is 6 inches(15cm) long. Pull it through the 3rd single crochet stitch. Chain 2. Count it as

the first double crochet in the 3rd single crochet. It's the same stitch you pulled the yarn through). Move the short tail from the work. Reserve it for the last step of the pointy edge.
In the same single crochet stitch where you chained 2, double crochet 1, chain 3, single
crochet 1 below chain 3. (These 3 chains create the picot's highest point). Double crochet 1. The point is complete. Decrease single crochet 1 in the next 2 single crochet stitches. This decrease prevents the edge from rippling while revealing a nice pointy detail. The edge design remains firm and completes the entire zigzag picot point/decrease.



Continue in a new workflow

You will no longer need to begin the zigzag picot/decrease point by chaining 2 stitches. That was to begin a new flow for what is now to follow. Instead, begin with double crochet 1 in the next single crochet stitch. Continue the same steps after you began with chain 2. Double crochet 1 the second time. Chain 3. Single crochet 1 below the 3 chains. Double crochet 1 the third time. Remember all this work will rest in the same single crochet stitch. Decrease single crochet 1 in the next 2 single crochet stitches.
Work the way from the beginning to the inside of the hat. Repeat the steps. Turn the hat inside-out. Pull the stitches from the outside to the inside. Make sure they are all there.
Decrease in the last two stitches at the end. Look at all the nice zigzag points. Cut a 6-inch tail with your scissors. Weave in the loose ends into the work with your tapestry needle. Turn the hat back to the outer side.

The Reserved Short Tail Saved in the Beginning

Return to the short tail where you began. Weave into the V-shaped stitches near the top of the hat edge. Use your tapestry needle. Move the needle over and under each "V" like a running stitch. Cut off the loose end. You completed the hat. Your Lauren zigzag Edge crochet beanie hat looks lovely!

You Completed the Hat

Whenever you wear your hat, tuck or untuck the flap over the left ear. But anyway, here it is. Thank you for watching and enjoying making this.
