Sparkly and festive for your New Year’s Eve celebration but cute enough to wear all year! Make 2019 your best year yet and sport this corner-to-corner crochet hat! First you crochet the corner-to-corner (C2C) pattern using the pixel graph provided below. Then I show you how to stitch it up and turn it into an adorable earflap hat complete with pom-poms! I am using a size G hook and Bernat Satin Sparkle Yarn in colors Coral and Platinum. I chose this yarn because not only is it full of celebration sparkles but Coral is also the 2019 Pantone color of the year!

I used the corner-to-corner crochet method to make this blanket. Instead of using DC stitches like a traditional C2C, I used HDC. See THIS VIDEO on how to corner-to-corner crochet using the Half Double Crochet!
Keep in mind that your numbers will not be reversible. The 2019 will be backwards on the backside which will become the inside of your hat.
This pattern is sized for a Teen/Adult size hat. You could take away rows on either side of the graph to make the width of the hat smaller, but then your numbers would no longer be on the front. They would wrap around the entire hat. You could use this graph to crochet the 2019 in SC stitches (like a graphgran). So use a basic SC hat pattern (like THIS one from Yarnspirations) and add in the 2019 using SC stitches in the middle of the hat.
If you aren’t familiar with the C2C technique, I have a video class available HERE for purchase that teaches you this technique! The CrochetCrowd also has a very helpful video tutorial for FREE that shows you the basic technique of corner-to-corner crochet. Check that out HERE.
Once you have the C2C portion finished, you will stitch it up, add the brim, earflaps, and pom-poms! Let me walk you through this process with the video below.
Stitch up the C2C piece, creating a circle. Then weave tapestry needle in and out of top portion and pull tight to cinch top of hat together. Weave in ends.
Attach yarn at bottom of hat and SC around making anywhere from 60-70 SC stitches along the bottom. The more SC stitches you make, the looser it will be. Exact count doesn’t matter.
SC around the brim for 3 rounds (more if you want it longer).
Then add on earflaps:
