Crochet Hats from the Bottom Up

What is up with the weather lately? Here we have had snow and cold one day and unseasonably warm temperatures the next. My solution-always keep a good crochet hat handy. A warm beanie is a must-have on a cold snowy day and pairs perfectly with a jacket on those warm days.

That might be why I have a drawer full of crochet hats, and several more I want to make. Every one of them is different, whether it is a different stitch pattern or a cool colorwork design.  I usually work from the crown down, but Mary Beth Temple makes a very convincing argument for working from the brim up.

When you crochet your hat from the bottom up, you can create incredible brims. Check out this preview to hear more from Mary Beth.

Why haven’t I been crocheting more hats from the brim up? I think it is time to reevaluate my hat queue. Thank you Mary Beth!
