3 Ways to Style the Hinterland Hatband + 3 Color Chart Variations
The Hinterland Hatband from Interweave Crochet Spring 2018 is incredibly versatile when it comes to your own style preferences. It fits on a wide range of hats, and it’s also easy to change up the pattern! Use the basic pattern described in the issue to get you started, and then let your imagination run wild!
Here are 3 styles of hats that pair perfectly with the Hinterland Hatband.
1. Cowboy Hat
A cowboy(girl) hat fits perfectly with Interweave Crochet Spring’s western theme and matches the feel of the hatband design. Choose a yarn and hat in a matching color if you feel so inclined.
A fedora is very trendy and pairs perfectly with a touch of southwestern geometrics. You’ll be ready for spring in a stylish hat and hatband set.
3. Sun Hat
If you’re headed to sunnier climates, pair this hatband with a large sun hat for vacation. Make it in colors to match your favorite swimsuit, and you’ll have an outfit perfect for lounging by the pool or beach.
And here are 3 colorwork charts to help you mix up your style a bit. If the western theme isn’t your style, substitute any of these for the color chart in the magazine, or use empty graph paper to create your own (the hatband is worked in a 25 stitch repeat).
This diamond patterning has less of a western feel but still plays up the geometric shapes. Pick out your favorite colors, and use this diamond colorwork pattern to practice your tapestry crochet.
2. Polka Dots
Who doesn’t love polka dots? Polka dots have a classic feel and will dress up any hat in your closet. Or, find a cute polka-dot skirt and make this hatband to match.
Use this color chart to work up a beautiful rose pattern. This pattern is just what you need to top off a hat for gardening or other botanical adventures. Try it out, and see what you think!
